This was our 4th cruise to Norway and we had been to all the ports before; we chose it to experience Arcadia and just relax on board. The ship is enormous and throughout the cruise there were passengers 'lost' whilst looking for some ... Read more

This was a wonderfully exciting itinerary taking in Belfast, Stornoway in the Western Isles of Scotland, 3 ports in Iceland, Shetland and Orkney. A rare chance to turn right out of Southampton and head for the Celtic Sea, lovely views of ... Read more

We wanted to see Iceland and we have cruised on Arcadia before. She has always been our favourite ship so this seemed an ideal choice for us. As usual embarkation and disembarkation was easy and well-organised. Food standards have taken an ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary as we had not been to Norway before and wanted to see the fjords. Embarkation was really good , we virtually got straight on the ship and were amazed to find our luggage outside the door . Usually we ... Read more

The opportunity to visit so many countries in one trip was what attracted us. Copenhagen, Stockholm St Petersburg, Helsinki, Talinn and Bruges. We were very lucky to have great weather which meant we were on the top deck with swimming ... Read more

The worst 17 nights on board I can recall. P & O have lost the plot. They are only concerned about getting people on board, not about how they look after them. It may be a few years since we travelled with them and I know that ... Read more

Fabulous cruise. Service and food was great. Great entertainment. 1. They need to sort out spaces for wheel chair people and mobile scooters, to sit in the theatre, as they blocked the emergency exit most nights on the right hand side. ... Read more

We chose this cruise to Norway as it fitted in with our leave dates, and was a destination that we had not been to before. We have been on 3 previous cruises (all with different carriers), so also wanted to see how P&O compared to the ... Read more

Fantastic ship. First time cruising for us, was a bit worried that it would be boring as we had our two boys aged 17 and 12 with us but actually it was brilliant. Embarkation was the quickest process ever, much better than going to the ... Read more

First time on the Arcadia. I wasn't sure if I would like it or not as there was no Atrium. It took a few days to work out where things where. I will definitely choose the Arcadia again. Lifts on the outside were great. Everyone was so ... Read more

This was our first taste of a cruise and 6 nights appeared to be an ideal duration. We really enjoyed our time on her. The food was of an excellent standard in the restaurants and for a small fee we tried the upmarket Shindu Indian ... Read more

We booked this section of the Arcadia's world trip in early 2015 as we were tempted by the stay in Sydney, the airline offered and the Great Barrier Reef. As an afterthought I consulted Cruise Critic and saw that many of the reviews ... Read more

Hindsight is a wonderful thing. If only we had done the research first! Our cruise from Sydney to Southampton started with a very long queue, despite having "priority" boarding as suite passengers. There was no ... Read more

We joined the world cruise in Sydney with about 1000 others. It does seem a tad disappointing fore 'around the world' cruisers that they have so many fairly transient passengers with them. The standard of the food was excellent as was the ... Read more

General: I took the cruise on the Arcadia 1-17 March 2016, Sydney-Brisbane-Yorkey’s Knob (Cairns)-Alotau (Papua New Guinea)-Manila-Hong Kong. The Arcadia caters largely for the over-65s, mainly British clientele, some of whom ... Read more
