This was the first time we have travelled with P & O and,regrettably, it will be the last. We booked this cruise because it had the itinerary at the time of year that we wanted, not because of the ship. Reading the reviews (after ... Read more

This was our second cruise, the first being on the Carnival Spirit to Alaska 2 years ago. I had read quite a few negative comments about P&O in general and the Arcadia in particular on this site so I was slightly cautious about the ... Read more

My friend Jill and I had never cruised before and chose this to enable us to visit St Petersburg. We hadn't really considered the ship, but certainly chose well for our first one. The ship provided all we wanted and although we had been ... Read more

Aurora. August 2014. Norwegian Fjords. 7 nights, outside cabin. This was our first cruise, so I cannot make any form of comparison to other cruise lines or specific cruises. However, I would guess that first time reports have a certain ... Read more

Having read disparaging reviews of the age of the ship, I was expecting to see evidence of that, and to find non-functioning ameneties. All were satisfactory. The quality of the cruise exceeded expectations as far as the ship and its ... Read more
