We booked this cruise as the itinerary was interesting to us and our previous P & O cruise experience (on Adonia) was excellent. We were not disappointed. The fact that Arcadia is an adult only ship had a special appeal to us. We ... Read more

Having just come back from Arcadia, I cant make up my mind on where the problems and issues I experienced with the ship came from? Was it P&O's fault for promising an Adult only ship but presented what was nearly a "floating care ... Read more

Bad: the ship in a lot of areas is beginning to look really tired even after the partial refit Bad: entertainment is geared towards their older clientele which is 75+ on average, very quiet with lounge playing piano players as the ... Read more

We were aware of some of the negative feedback about Arcadia before we set sail; however, we decided to be open minded about everything. It's fair to say, there will always be parts of a cruise that could have gone better, but for us, the ... Read more
