Ship Facts: Arcadia Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Arcadia Deck Plans
Part World cruise Southampton to Sydney
Embarkation in Southampton was good it took less than one hour to get on board the ship.

the initial observation of the vessel was good large bars and lounges and plenty of deck space.

The balcony cabin was fine , bathroom was large and seemed fine. But after 3 days all this changed.

the toilet kept on breaking down 10 times on the whole journey 3 times spilling water and raw sewage onto the bathroom floor.Each time when we complaint the problem was fixed so we thought but again and again it happened.We asked to be moved on 3 occasions but the request was totally ignored.

the Headliner shows were great the best we have seen on a cruise ship for a long while.but otherwise the daily entertainment was to say mediocre the cruise director was never to be found and the cruise staff are very badly trained.

Food in the Belvedere leaves a lot to be desired, always cold and very little variety.

Our waiters in the main dining room were fine and the food was of good quality.

Food in the Rhodes is excellent well worth the extra cover charge.

The screening room must be the joke of the century, 30 seats for a ship with 2000 passengers.Would we ever go again on this vessel NO WAY.
