A166 is an aft cabin and is larger than the other port and starboard cabins. It has the advantage of being virtually free of the wind caused by the forward progress of the ship making for a very comfortable relaxation on the balcony. However the deck was washed 3/4 times to remove the soot particularates from the ship's exhaust! Though being on deck 8 aft there was no engine noise but a good deal of sun bed movement, being beneath the Lido deck. This did not concern us as it tended not to be during unsocial hours. The cabin was as expected but a little larger and very comfortable, the bed especially, as always. Just a pity about the toe nail left all the fortnight on the skirting board from a previous occupant! Read Less

Pretty much as it was 13 years previous, we like that you get a bath with shower over, rather than just a shower. Bed very comfortable, decor uninspiring and balcony could have done with a paint and the glass on the balcony wasn't ... Read More

This is the first time I have had a forward balcony cabin on Arcadia (I prefer the stern cabins), but have had them before on Queen Victoria/Elizabeth. QE and QV cabins were fine, but I would not have one again on Arcadia due to noise and vibration that was not noticeable on the two Queens. This is one of the metal fronted balcony cabins at the front of E deck. It also only has a shower rather than a shower over the bath. I prefer the shower only as it does make the bathroom that little bit bigger. I did find some issues with noise in this cabin. First, for about an hour either side of docking the cabin was noisy and once the bow thrusters were powered up to complete docking there was a lot of vibration. Secondly, the balcony door did not fit properly causing a whistling sound. This was excessive and I had to be moved to another cabin for the night. The door was fixed the following day but by the time the ship returned to Southampton it was starting to whistle again. Third, the cabin is next to an air-conditioning unit which seems to be noisy when in port - after leaving port the noise drops. Fourth, crew access the front of the ship on D and E deck early in the morning and many days there was a clanking/metallic sound every morning around 6am. Also, there were cigarette butts on the balcony which I can only assume has come from the crew areas. Read Less

Good position close to lifts and stairs. Plenty of storage. The balcony divider rattled in more windy conditions but was not too bothersome. Lovely cabin steward, always smiling and chatty.

First Arcadia cruise : Cabin A24

This cabin was very handy for the forward lifts/stairs, and relatively spacious. Plus points: * Very good design of wardrobe, allowing flexible use of the space with shelf options. * Generous storage space * Modern flat-screen TV * In-cabin tea-making facilities * Very good soundproofing between cabins Minus points: * Poor ergonomic design - when in use by a couple, if one is using the wardrobe you cannot get to the bathroom. * Bathroom door opens outwards, so beware! * The sofabed (we only used it as a sofa) was rather uncomfortable and not suitable for sitting on for any length of time * The balcony door rattled unless it was double-locked - it was fine otherwise Read Less

Four Days of Bliss : Cabin A13
Cabin was light, bright, spotlessly clean. Wonderful bed. Air-conditioning that worked the way it should. Tea and Coffee making facilities and and iron and ironing board were delivered to the room for me to freshen up some shirts. ... Read More
Cabin was light, bright, spotlessly clean. Wonderful bed. Air-conditioning that worked the way it should. Tea and Coffee making facilities and and iron and ironing board were delivered to the room for me to freshen up some shirts. Wonderful room attendant - Silvestri. One silly gripe that irritated me was the nice print, framed on the wall that had slipped within its frame. If it wasn't such a nice print I might not have cared. Read Less
