Arvia AVOID

Review for a Europe - British Isles & Western Cruise on Arvia

What was supposed to be a lovely holiday turned into an experience that I couldn’t wait to end. The food is truly terrible, this isn’t my first P&O cruise but it will definitely be my last. The staff on board look so unhappy and will avoid eye contact so they don’t have to speak. Now this does not apply to everyone but definitely the majority. I’ve lost count the number of people I’ve spoken ...

Currently on board Queen Anne and let me start off by saying how disappointed I am! You might as well paint her white and re name her a P&O ship! . Lobby is cold, clinical and uninviting . Waiting so long for our food - Restaurant is understaffed and food quality has unfortunately been reduced. .Where do I start on entertainment! Some of the worst at sea. Let’s Dance for example, which I ...

Lovely ship decor, we have a big ocean view right up front above the bridge. Don’t like the ship layout at all - open plan style. Buffet is terrible, queues for everything, NO self service for even a piece of toast or a bread roll. Brittania restaurant is very noisy, low ceilings, hard surfaces - we’ve moved tables twice but not much better. Queens room is like an airport departure lounge. ...

Our suite was fine. Boarding and port disembarkation were outstanding. Crew was mostly very good and friendly. However, the cruise line has gone downhill. Soups, other than specialty restaurants are water. Rolls were rocks. Ice cream tasted like milky ice, couldn’t detect any vanilla flavoring. The Whiskey Bar staff was rude. One guy told me I couldn’t get a cosmo there, but I did the day before. ...

Experienced cruisers,15 +, 4th with princess. First with sky princess. Really looking forward to dining experiences, always excellent in previous cruises. However, we were to be so disappointed. Food in mdr's was always cold and of the poorest quality. All 3 dining rooms were same standard with the same problems. Service was incredibly slow. Self service restaurant was always ...

Positives. Embarkation in Southampton was a breeze. The quickest we’ve ever joined a ship. After leaving our taxi we were onboard in 15 mins. The ship was absolutely spotless. The crew were excellent and worked very hard. The cabin was lovely and kept immaculate by our cabin steward. Minor issues like our balcony divider banging in the wind were dealt with straight away. The ...

Embarkation at Southampton was excellent, mini-suite and steward first class, crew excellent. Churchills smoking lounge turned to a kids arcade upset naughty smokers like me - can smoke a ciggy in the Casino but no cigars or pipes, so don't book in winter or end up in a gale on deck. Restaurant bookings chaotic - we didn't manage to get our booked table on any night and ended up either in a ...

Can’t knock the ship or the value.

Enjoyable and great value for money. We’d cancelled a 5 star East Med cruise due to insurance and security problems. Replaced with this and another Britannia cruise in August for the same cost. Of course some aspects aren’t Holland America standard but in short, the ship isn’t crowded, it’s modern and easy to navigate (the app, table booking etc work just fine) the MDR food is okay but you’ll need ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

This a tired ship in need of a good refurb. The public areas are cramped. Having been on other Vista class ships this one is probably the worst in terms of internal layout. The food is really bad, the buffet being marginally better than the main dining room. The problem with the main dining room are the queues. Too much time is spent waiting although the British are stoic when it comes to ...

I’ve been cruising with P&O for 17 years now and I can not fault them. Although Arcadia is a lovely ship for adults it does need a few refurbishments around the ship. Food was good however the waffle and pancakes in buffet at breakfast are left under a heated lamp and go hard and inedible. Entertainment was good and enjoyable. Drink venues opening hours could be different on port days. Bilbao ...
