P&O Cruises UK Ventura australia cruise sale
Discover the best of the Mediterranean and take in some of the magnificent sights of Europe. In Vigo you will find the best view from the fort (Castillo del Castro) overlooking the harbour. Then walk through the steep, narrow streets of the atmospheric old town (Barrio del Berbes) to see (and smell...) the daily fish market. Try one of the oysters which are fresh from beds in Vigos ‘ria’ - one of the sunken sea-filled valleys for which Galicias coastline is renowned.  Lisbon, home to busy streets of inviting shops, caf├ęs, restaurants, narrow cobblestone streets, medieval and Moorish-style buildings and wrought-iron balconies with trailing flowers. Who couldn't fall in love with Rome- it's Colosseum, tossing a coin into Trevi fountain, the breathtaking monuments, palaces and churches and the Sistine chapel, home to Michelangelo's masterpieces. Enter Tuscany through Livorno and visit Florence, Pisa, Sienna or Lucca and fall in love with the Italian culture and wine. Dress up to the nines for Monaco, an enchanting monarchy where you can walk around the harbour or pay a visit to the Grand Casino. Shop La Rambla in Barcelona, visit the iconic Gaudi Sagrada Familia or siesta with the locals under a tree. Visit the extraordinary food markets before departing for Cadiz, Spain, the oldest continuously inhabited city in the western world. Whitewashed houses and exquisitely coloured bougainvillea will have you wishing to stay forever.

About the Ventura
Ventura is an exciting addition to the fleet. Her 19 decks are overflowing with stylish features and innovative facilities. Cosmopolitan to the core, she’s taken everything P&O Cruises are renowned for - quality, choice, attention to detail, seamless service, fine dining - but added her own unique twist. The largest member of the fleet, Ventura’s variety has proved popular with all ages. From couples and singles, to parents, grandparents, tots and teens, there’s something on board for everyone. This abundance makes Ventura the perfect modern holiday – not only can you explore together, dine together and have fun together, but you can find your own space to indulge, unwind and relax. The menus are still as mouth-watering, but there’s the opportunity to dine in Marco Pierre White’s first restaurant at sea. Artwork still adorns the walls, but there are over 7000 specially commissioned pieces to admire. The theatre shows are still as spectacular, but you’ll also find tribute acts, comedians, pianists, live bands and classical recitals on board. And above all, the P&O Cruises unfaltering dedication to offering the ultimate holiday experience still stands strong.  Read more about Ventura here.
