P&O Cruises has changed the turnaround port from Savona to Genoa for all calls of the Ventura 2014 Fly-Med program.

The change to Genoa will improve and enhance the overall passenger experience, according to the line, and will apply to all sailings for Ventura Fly-Med season from N407A departing March 26, 2014 through to N421B departing October 15, 2014.

P&O Cruises managing director Carol Marlow said: “Having Ventura based in the port of Genoa will allow us to provide a more efficient service during embarkation and disembarkation, reducing the transfer time considerably for those flying in or out of Genoa airport. The port itself is also the gateway to this ancient Italian city, with waterfront restaurants, shopping and numerous historic places of interest all in close proximity, providing a much richer port experience for our passengers.”

Marlow continued: “This will be our first Mediterranean fly-cruise season onboard Ventura and so we want to ensure it’s a huge success. We are confident that this change to the itinerary will provide our passengers with an enhanced experience to their holiday.”

For the first time ever, and new for 2014, P&O Cruises is offering Fly-Med cruises on Ventura.
