Ventura's highlights

All about entertainment

Between the two-tier Arena theatre with its new LED screen, the exotic Tamarind Club and the lively Havana lounge, there’s never a dull moment on board your ship.

A delight for foodies

During your cruise, you’ll find Indian favourites with a British twist at Sindhu, a world of wine at The Glass House and fantastic flavours at The Beach House. And The Epicurean combines fine dining, contemporary presentation and quality ingredients for an unforgettable experience.

A shopper’s paradise

Brands such as Bric’s, Caroline Gardner and Fat Face sit alongside ship favourites such as Radley, Cath Kidston and Pandora. The enhanced Dixons Travel store, meanwhile, sells the latest tech, from tablets to headphones.

Where can you sail to on Ventura?

Ventura visits the vibrant Med

Visit the highlights of the Med on a Mediterranean cruise. Enjoy vibrant Barcelona with its stunning beach-front, culture and cobbled lanes; the playground of the rich and famous Monte Carlo; and La Spezia from which you can visit Pisa or Florence.

Enjoy the luscious landscapes of Iberia and the Canary Islands

The perfect cruise for some sunshine without going too far afield. There’s plenty for everyone to enjoy including volcanic vistas, black beaches, warm waters, luscious landscapes, traditional towns and spectacular scenery.

Stay closer to home with a Short Break

Enjoy a Short Break on Ventura; the perfect introduction to cruising. It’s the ideal blend of sea days to relax on board your ship and the opportunity to discover cities such as Bruges with its chocolate delights or the cafés, canals and culture of Amsterdam.

Escape the cold and head to the Caribbean

Where laid-back meets adventure: you could find yourself hiking through rainforests and mountain tracks or lazing on a blissful white-sand beach and diving beneath the waves on a Caribbean cruise.

Visit the Baltic – a playground of cultural riches

Take in capital cities, cultural masterpieces and lesser-known gems. On a Baltic cruise you can city-hop from Helsinki to St Petersburg, Tallinn, Stockholm and Copenhagen all on one holiday.

Explore Spain and Portugal on Ventura

Famed for their abundant sunshine and sandy shores, these dynamic destinations offer much more than beach-based breaks. Leave the sun-lounger behind and treat your senses to eye-opening culture, mouth-watering cuisine and hair-raising adventure on a cruise with us.

Best ever!!

It was the best holiday we ever have! We found it more enjoyable when we visited number of countries instead of just one place all the time. Would be nice to have more deaf accessible to cabin and about. We would definitely coming back again very soon.
