hi booked ventura for xmas/nyear 2013 today what she like. was on azura last xmas/nyear & loved it .Has the ventura got the big screen on top deck like the azura.Loved watching the football while sunbathing
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.
No it hasn't got the big screen up on the pool deck.
The Ventura is just as nice, we went on her first and then went on the Azura last year

Done Azura then three times on Ventura then back on Azura next month. Little to choose really. Only minor points although I loathe the chargeable retreat on Azura which is an area open to all on Ventura.
