Ventura Overview

Launched in 2007 and christened by Dame Helen Mirren, the Ventura is a family-friendly cruise ship in the P&O fleet. The atmosphere on board is warm and welcoming, with dining, entertainment and accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets. Her sister ship is the Azura.

Specs: Ventura at a glance

The Ventura weighs 116,017 tonnes, measures 956 feet in length and spans 19 decks. She can accommodate 3,080 passengers and 1,220 crew members. Her cruise speed is 21.7 knots.


Accommodation: Ventura rooms and suites

Ventura has a total of 1,555 cabins across three main categories: inside, outside and balcony. Sizes start at a modest 130 square feet (singles) and go up to 958 square feet (penthouse suite). All standard rooms are equipped with basic amenities such as a flatscreen television and a mini-bar, as well as tea and coffee making facilities - a nice excuse to relax in your cabin with a cuppa and the paper. Suites come with additional perks, including a separate lounge area, an MP3 player, a whirlpool bathtub and luxurious toiletries from the White Company.


Entertainment: things to do on board the Ventura

Whether you're in the mood for relaxing by the pool or socialising with fellow passengers, there's plenty to keep you entertained on board the Ventura. Highlights include:
  • The Oasis Spa - one of the largest in the P&O fleet
  • Live performances every evening at the Arena Theatre
  • The Retreat, a kids-free area
  • 4 swimming pools
  • A large sports court
  • Children's clubs and activities for ages 2 to 18



Food: Ventura restaurants

With 11 restaurants across the ship, you're spoiled for choice when it comes to dining. What's more, the food is of an incredibly high standard - your tastebuds will be begging you to book another cruise once it's over!

Dining included in your Ventura ticket:
  • Bay Tree Dining Room: traditional, fixed-seating
  • Cinnamon Dining Room and Saffron Dining Room: flexible dining
  • Buffet Restaurant
  • Tazzine: specialty coffee shop (the food is complimentary but beverages incur a small fee)

  • The Glass House: Spanish fare
  • Sindhu: authentic Indian dishes

  • The White Room: fine dining inspired by Marco Pierre White
  • The East: Asian fusion



Destinations: Ventura itineraries

The Ventura cruise ship spends most of her time sailing to ports across Europe and the Mediterranean from her home base of Southampton. She offers a wide variety of shore excursions to suit all interests and activity levels, such as a tour of the old town in Cadiz, Spain and a coastal drive to Rabat, the capital of Morocco.


Things to remember: On board Ventura

Here are some helpful facts to keep in mind when planning a holiday on board the Ventura cruise ship:
  • Expect to see many families on board; the Ventura prides herself on offering excellent facilities for families, small and large.
  • The onboard currency is the Great British Pound and a small gratuity is automatically added to your bill daily.
  • The dress code is smart casual during the day and evening casual by night, with at least one formal night per cruise.

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!

Club Dining

  • With Club Dining you'll enjoy the special ambience and sociable atmosphere of the main dining room, as well as silver-service and a five-course menu (six-course on Gala Nights). This style of dining is a wonderful way to share your holiday experiences and meet new friends.
  • By choosing Club Dining you’re opting for the cruising tradition of set sitting times. The same table will be reserved for you and your table companions every night for first or second sitting, at 6.30pm or 8.30pm. You simply need to request your sitting preference when you book and we’ll inform you of your table number, sitting and restaurant with a card in your stateroom when P&O Cruises welcomes you on board.

East Restaurant

  • Select Dining is wonderfully flexible, allowing you a change of scene and the opportunity to dine with different people. This is a great way to add variety to your holiday, if you wish to dine earlier or later than usual, celebrate a special occasion or enjoy an intimate meal for two. Please note that a Select Dining cover charge applies.

Stage Shows

Arena Theatre

  • Ventura's theatre will be located forward on Deck 7 and span two decks. West End-style shows and cabaret will light up her technologically advanced stage, though this flexible venue offers far more besides.
  • In the theatres on a P&O Cruises superliner you will find some of the most lavish and spectacular shows at sea. There are compilations of West End and Broadway shows, as well as tributes to well known stars.
  • The on board cinemas show classic feature films and recent releases – many of which are shown months before they are released in the UK. You can easily imagine you are attending an indulgent premiere at one of London’s top movie theatres!
