Our first cruise & chosen as it covered the date of our 50th wedding anniversary. From start to finish we thoroughly enjoyed the experience, so much so that we have booked this ship for our next cruise. The cabin was comfortable, the crew extremely friendly & nothing was too much trouble. The the evening theatre cast " The Headliners" were very professional & put on some first class shows. Food was plentiful with a choice between the buffet & Meridian restaurant, we had early dining & found the menu covered every taste. Meals in the main were very good & the desserts far too tempting. There were plenty of activities to choose from depending on your taste. We didn't book any on-board shore excursions as we prefer to do our own thing. Enjoyed our ports of call but disappointed on missing out on the Azores but due adverse weather forecast the Captain had no choice but to change our last ports of call. Read Less

We chose this cruise as it took in 7 ports of call of interest. This was our 5th cruise with P&O but the first time on Arcadia. Weather was fine and calm which helped, but everything from food to entertainment was the best we have experienced. In the past some dishes in the restaurant were a little soggy such as chips and battered fish therefore we had avoided them but not so on this ship. Executive chef was Trevor Glass, well done to him and his team. Entertainment we saw most included Jo and Liv, Blue Wave and the Headliners all of which were excellent. Ship was well maintained and clean, staff very friendly and attentive, although there was the odd Arcadia pipe leak with a bucket under catching the water until repaired but don’t let this put you off. Thoroughly enjoyed by my wife and myself together with our friends who were first time cruisers. Mark W Read Less

First time in the Arcadia and it was absolutely first class. The entertainment in the Palladium was second to none and as good as any London West End Show. Evening dinner was very good although there could have been a better choice in the buffet. I can only imagine the negative reviewers were probably too fussy. This was the best cruise we have ever been on and just right for an adult cruise. There was no smut at all at any of the entertainements. The trips were well organised and daytime entertainement very good. I did feel that there could have been more shops and the goods in the shops were very expensive. Some of the grade of clothing could just as well have been bought at Primark. Clothing was unnecessarily expensive. It was very easy to get round the ship which is medium size. I would certainly go on the Arcadia again. Read Less

We are recently returned from another delightful cruise on Arcadia. She is our favourite ship and it feels like coming home as soon as we board her. I cruise with my mum who is 85 and is not very mobile, she uses a rollator. We find Arcadia very easy to get about on, although mum did say this timethat all the new carpets made it harder to push 'Roly'. The food was excellent, good choices every night in the Meridian. We had room service breakfast every day, it's easier and i can enjoy our sail ins on the balcony. We have a mini suite and we really make the most of the space. Lunch we usually had in the Belvedere and the choices were enough for us each day. Headliners were an excellent troupe, one of the best we have seen. We enjoyed Tom O’Conner and met him around the ship which was nice. As we cruised 3 times on Arcadia last year we were pleased to see Stuart Anderson on board again, he sings and plays piano and guitar, great to listen to. Service was as usual, excellent. Everyone is helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Read Less
