As a reminder: there is space for 3.078 passengers with double occupancy of the cabins on the ship measured with 116.017 GT. The Ventura cruise ship offers a sufficiently large sports area. The emphasis is on "sufficient". The Ventura cannot come up with the mass of devices that German club ships offer, for example. However, the well-equipped sports center does not tend to be overcrowded.

It is noticeable that there are enough loungers available in attractive locations even on days at sea. The German bad habit of “reserving” several loungers at the same time is evidently not cultivated and not tolerated on English ships.


The room in the spa area was used more generously than in the gym. Diverse programs and treatment rooms are offered in sufficient numbers there. A hair salon was also considered. The services offered are diverse. Spa visitors also have a separate pool with two whirlpools as well as one Retreat called noble retreat available.
