Quizzes (such as name that tune), live bands and televised sporting events shown on the plasma screens are the entertainment on offer along with video horse racing which guests can place bets on. The Red Bar offering cocktails in a sophisticated setting close to the Atrium, is an ideal place for drinks before and after dinner (with free canapes served prior to dinner and piano music for entertainment). The Glass House offers a well-stocked wine cellar serving premium wines hand-picked by wine expert Olly Smith in choice of 175ml glasses, 250ml glasses or bottles of wine and mouth-watering daytime and evening menus. It also features an Enomatic wine system which enables passengers to sample wines by the glass rather than having to buy an entire bottle. The bottle is opened then preserved by inert gas so that it doesn’t react to oxygen in the air and the temperature can also be controlled ensuring each wine is served at the correct temperature for that type of wine.
A Ventura cruise is very family-friendly with fantastic children’s clubs and a play area for under 2s. She even has a 24 hour buffet restaurant so the only routines you need to keep are your own. Rock School usually runs for the duration of the cruise and children rehearse for a few hours on sea days to put on a show at the end of the cruise. Those attending get the chance to learn a musical instrument and become part of a band. Noddy and Mr Bump characters make regular appearances for Splashers and also at some childrens meal times.
