P&O Cruises Ventura Suffers Serious Damage in Bay of Biscay

Reports are coming in that P&O Cruises, Ventura has been seriously damaged during a recent Bay of Biscay crossing. Passengers onboard have been relaying information via the cruise line's forum

The ship, currently on her way back to Southampton, hit bad weather last night whilst sailing through the notorious stretch of water and a rather large crack has now appeared in one of her higher decks.

The gap seems to be at least 2 inches wide and passengers onboard say it runs the entire length of the deck with damage to the window pane on the deck below and the frame seeming out of place. Those onboard have stated the crack runs both vertically and horizontally.

Passengers say the area has been sectioned off and passengers with balcony cabins on deck 14 have been told not to use their balconies.

The damage seems to be around a weld however and not a weld directly.

We will keep you updated on this story and whether it will have an effect on upcoming sailings.
