Having been and thoroughly enjoyed Arcadia 3 times before, we were keen to see all the enhancements she had had since her extensive refit as well as to introduce her to some great friends of ours who were first time cruisers. We - and ... Read more

This was my first cruise and I was travelling alone, I wanted to try cruising without committing to a) too much time on board or b) a really expensive, lengthy cruise just in case cruising wasn't for me. Admittedly my expectations were ... Read more

We have travelled with P&O before and indeed in 2012 enjoyed a cruise on Arcadia. How things have changed on the Arcadia. The first negative was the dining arrangements, after one night of a table for 6 in the stern, we asked to be ... Read more

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

Arcadia was not for us. I am a wheelchair user and we had booked early in order to get an accessible room on Arcadia - A120 - a 'luxury' balcony. Embarkation and disembarkation went quickly and smoothly. Our room was small, not what 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

We thought of checking out the Arcadia, as she sails around the world at seemingly reasonable fares, in order to have a base to judge her appeal for some months. Good that we did, as we did not like the overall impression. It started with ... Read more
