No Northern Lights, not much light at all.

O.K. so if you opt for a cruise to Northern Norway at the end of November you've got to expect that the weather might be problematic and it was! This was not a great cruise experience and unfortunately this was not entirely due to the various storms and gales that we sailed through. To warn future searchers for the Northern Lights you should research the itinerary carefully. Technically we were ...

Cruise Norway 26/11/19 What can I say, been on a good few P&O cruises and enjoyed them all even in bad weather and heavy seas but this one to Norway on Arcadia was bad. The cruise was advertised by Iglu as a 12 nighter with 4 stops two of those being overnight, good selling point, to us overnight means overnight so less time at sea but Iglu's overnight meant leaving port at 1 or 2 am so ...

We hadn't sailed with P&O before and the dates fitted in with our plans as we live way up N in Aberdeenshire. We drove down the day before & stayed O/N at a Holiday Inn Express which offered 15 days free parking plus taxi to/from the port. Excellent package. Embarkation was very efficient and we boarded very quickly, with the luggage arriving in reasonable time. We booked early May and one of ...

having sailed on this ship before and having lots of problems on it was, wondering if it would be the same. Having said that P&O were very helpful to us and we had already booked this cruise before sailing on the last. So we had a wonderful cruise the weather of course made it even more enjoyable. The scenery was outstanding. CABIN We had changed our cabin because of the trouble on the last ...

Lovely Itinerary but Arcadia is now our least favourite P&O ship

Our 15th cruise with P&O and our first on Arcadia, which means that we have now been on all ships in the P&O fleet at least once, so can make direct comparisons between them all. We booked this cruise as we wanted to see the Fjords to Flaam and Olden, as our previous attempt (on Britannia) failed as P&O cancelled both ports a few months before (this has happened at least 6 times that I know of ...

We had a balcony cabin and sailing from Southampton for a belated 40th wedding anniversary. An extensive wine list and reasonably priced, A bottle of St Emilion Grand Cru 2012 was £24-95 around the price in Majestic or Waitrose ashore. Excellent food but whatever time we came the Freedom Dining was busy and we had pagers several times and delays. P&O should drop Haugesund - Not worth the ...

We had been to The Fiords before and wanted a short cruise where we could get an accessible cabin. We tried all the other cruise lines without success and as a last resort tried P&O. They had one balcony cabin left and we booked that. When we arrived at the ship the check in was easy and without hitch. That's where it stopped. We were told our cabin was ready and to go to deck six. As we were both ...

Family holiday with my elderly disabled mother, the Norwegian scenery was breath taking and beautiful, easily accessible and stress free with the wheelchair, embarking and disembarkation. The staff were polite and friendly most of the time, however we had high expectations of the food that we were told by pervious cruisers was out of this world, but the food was of adisappointing standard,very ...

My wife and I took a 12 day cruise on Arcadia from Southampton to the Norwegian fjords in July 2017. It was our second P&O cruise. We have cruised with lots of other lines, most recently with Seabourn, Azamara and Fred Olsen. The itinerary, our main reason for choosing this cruise, was great. Overall we enjoyed the trip but we are unlikely to choose P&O again. The check-in process was very ...
