MV Ventura is a Grand-class cruise ship of the P&O cruises fleet. The ship was built by Fincantieri at their shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy. At 116,017 tonnes and 291m (956 ft), Ventura is the second largest of seven ships currently in service with P&O Cruises. She officially entered service with the company in April 2008 and was named by Dame Helen Mirren.
Several cruise ships and ocean liners were with us in Lyme Bay during the pandemic in 2020/21 when they sheltered in the bay unable to sail the seas with passengers. These outstanding photographs taken by David Caunter conjure up many emotions, the ships looked majestic and were wonderful to look at; however, there was a sadness that they could not cruise around the world at this time.
