Ventura is almost identical to Azura apart from the big screen, instead Ventura has a roof which can be closed over that pool. The Glasshouse area on Azura is the Ramblas on Ventura, a lovely place to enjoy a sangria, and the self service restaurant which is used as an Italian restaurant in the evening on Azura is an American diner on Ventura. These were the main differences we noticed, but we love both ships.
