Arcadia to the Baltic
Destination: Baltic Sea
Previous ships cruised on are Aurora, Oriana and Oceana.
I'll limit my eview to comparing Arcadia with Aurora.
Check-in - best yet. Quick. Efficient. On board within 25 miniutes from first driving up to port.
Arcadia - Adult only - bliss. No children playing in the lifts and generally running around unsupervised.I like children but also like their parents to be with them, not me.
Cabins - Arcadia superior - loved the glass fronted balcony, more hanging space and room for cases under bed.
Public areas , shops, library etc - Aurora better - Arcadia very squashed and limited space. Cinema unable to cope with numbers.
Food - I think probably food is not as good generally as it was a More few years ago but it was fine. One tough steak but the one in Marco Pierre White melted in the mouth.
Staff - delightful. Couldn't be more helpful on both ships.
Laundrette - far too small on Arcadia but is this really an issue?
Would I go on Arcadia again - most definitely, without a second thought.
I would also recommend ALLA TOURS in St Petersburg. We had a fantastic, lets go to the front of the queue, two days. Saw all the sights in a group of 4 with our own guide. Cost about Â£220 each but P&O charge that for one morning in a group of 4.You don't pay a penny till the second morning and usually remain ahead of the crowds. Less
Cabin review: DF Deluxe Stateroom with Balcony and Bath/Shower
Good size. Lots of hanging space and hangers. Cases fit under bed.Super glass fronted balcony. Well insulated. Quiet. Comfy bed. Decor and fittings a little tired - need a facelift. Helpful, attentive steward with a good sense of humour.Read All Deluxe Stateroom with Balcony and Bath/Shower (DF) Reviews >>
