Took this short cruise for a short break to celebrate New year away from home. The best bit about P and O cruises is the Sindu restaurant. Ate here twice in 5 nights. This was a typical cruise ship food and entertainment. Very ... Read more

Our first cruise on Arcadia was somewhat disappointing, what with a Norovirus outbreak on board, drainage problems (buckets collecting leaks) and a very disappointing entertainment programme. The food (1st sitting in the Meridian) was ... Read more

We wanted a Christmas break and saw the Baltic cruise advertised, which seemed o fit the bill perfectly having only done warm Christmas breaks before. The embarkation was slow but I would say average for a ship of this size, although ... Read more

Ship (Arcadia) was reportedly all good prior to booking our cruise, Unfortunately once on board we noticed this terrible smell on prom deck which seemed to go throughout the ship. Buckets catching leaks from what could have been waste ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we were not disappointed. We booked a mini suite and well worth it for the extra space and little extras (spa bath, toiletries, champagne and canopies) a big balcony - constant hot water - a very comfortable ... Read more

This was my first cruise with P&O. Much was as I expected. The cabin was functional (inside). Evening entertainment very good. Daytime entertainment poor. Main restaurant excellent service and food. Buffets very disappointing, very ... Read more

First impressions. I thought I had walked onto a Brittany Ferries boat to Santander - with better cabins. All the atmosphere of Stamford Bridge after Chelsea have been beaten at home. Average age of the passengers to the Caribbean was ... Read more

I have just returned from this cruise as a solo traveller and think some people writing reviews must be talking about a different ship!! ARRIVAL and embarking was fast, painless and friendly (drove to Southampton. Porters took luggage ... Read more

Cruise chosen as we wanted to explore a bit further into the Adriatic. As such we enjoyed going ashore taking some excursions which were good and also self exploring. The ship being larger than vessels we usually cruise on took some ... Read more

We chose this cruise to revisit Venice but arrangement for getting ashore was a nightmare. We are 86 and 84 and the majority of passengers were of a similar age. Shuttle buses were not provided so we were faced with a 1000m walk to a ferry ... Read more

My husband and I chose this cruise because as a Multiple Sclerosis sufferer I cannot cope with the intense heat during the Summer. Having sailed with P&O previously we knew that they catered well for the disabled. I was not ... Read more

Food and service was the poorest I have ever encountered in over 3 decades of cruising. Arcadia are obviously putting cost first and trying to attract a new breed of cruiser who are not that particular. The food in the MDR was more like ... Read more

There are not many ships that cross the Atlantic twice. P&O and Cunard are regularly on this trip. Phoenix also offers this route but there you are 44 nigths on the ship. We also had to book with one of these companies. We booked the ... Read more

The cruise was pretty good overall despite having some adverse weather on both outbound and inbound journeys. However the ship seems to handle the swell pretty good. Sadly the ship is showing signs of age and a constant sewage smell was ... Read more

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

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
