Fabulous cruise. Service and food was great. Great entertainment. 1. They need to sort out spaces for wheel chair people and mobile scooters, to sit in the theatre, as they blocked the emergency exit most nights on the right hand side. ... Read more

We chose this ship and cruise as we have had excellent holidays with P and O in past few years. Also we chose to sail from Southampton instead of a fly cruise as my husband is unable to fly due to a medical condition. We had previously ... Read more

First time on the Arcadia. I wasn't sure if I would like it or not as there was no Atrium. It took a few days to work out where things where. I will definitely choose the Arcadia again. Lifts on the outside were great. Everyone was so ... Read more

We chose the cruise because of the destinations, which were all fantastic. The food served in all the restaurants was incredible, we have never tasted food this good before. We are seasoned cruisers and have found that all ships serve very ... Read more

We have been on several P&O cruises before but first time in Brittania. We had seen some bad reviews so we're concerned about Brittania but glad to say these were unfounded. The ship has modern bright decor and is fairly easy to ... Read more

We had cruised on Ventura last September and were a bit anxious about such a big ship as we had found Britannia not to our taste. However we loved her and so were happy to book again for this May.Arrived in Southampton at 1pm for our timed ... Read more

We have cruised many times with P & O, preferring Azura for Caribbean holidays, but decided to try a smaller ship, i.e. Oceana. The price was reasonable and as a seven night cruise was a good way of deciding whether we would like the ... Read more

1st review - hope it helps. Our 5th cruise, all with P&O and we were very pleased with the ship facilities certainly better than the Oceana which we thought was a bit tired. Embarkation and debarkation were well organised. ... Read more

I read reviews prior to going on Oceana and went with an open mind. From getting on the transfer bus to embark and returning to the uk we found the whole experience a joy to behold. The inside cabin A727 was ideal for us and the steward ... Read more

Embarkation and disembarkation can only be described as shambolic. It seemed everyone was at the terminal at the same time and so no seats and long delays to embark. They give people a piece of paper with an allocated colour for ... Read more

We booked this section of the Arcadia's world trip in early 2015 as we were tempted by the stay in Sydney, the airline offered and the Great Barrier Reef. As an afterthought I consulted Cruise Critic and saw that many of the reviews ... Read more

We joined the world cruise in Sydney with about 1000 others. It does seem a tad disappointing fore 'around the world' cruisers that they have so many fairly transient passengers with them. The standard of the food was excellent as was the ... Read more
