Even P&O couldn't spoil the fabulous scenery
"Our feelings about this cruise are mainly critical of management and communication, and that P&O have been less than forthcoming with information regarding what is and what is not available and why.Surely they can’t have all succumbed to Covid, no afternoon tea in the main restaurants, no mini bar available in our suite, no end of cruise log etc etc...."Read More

Having just completed the P&O j219 cruise on Arcadia to the Greek islands with a stop at Malaga on the way out and Gib on the way back, I will give you the gen. Firstly we have only ever been with Cunard before this, so that is the benchmark I am working from, some facts.. £6400 for a deluxe balcony £3200 each. Was it worth it, NO..the only difference between a balcony on a cunard was a half ...

We wanted to have a holiday in August without too much heat and so chose this Norwegian Fjords cruise. Everything about Norway was fabulous, mind blowing scenery and lovely people. Having read some dreadful reviews of recent cruises on Arcadia we would probably have cancelled if that would have not lost us so much money. However, in the main our fears proved to be unfounded in most ...

Norway & Iceland cruise July 2022. The worst cruise ever. Firstly food - no vegetarian menu, unable to get any senior staff to talk to me abut this. When I complained they said there was nothing they could do as it was all down to Head Office, pathetic. Tried to talk to Hotel Manager, no luck, tried Food & Beverages manager – no luck, finally got to the assistant Food & Bev manager and a ...

Prior to Covid we had booked an extended cruise with P&O. It was over 42 days, starting in San Francisco. When the chaos first started with cancelled cruises, P&O had said we could reschedule the booked cruise. So we did . Had we waited a few months we could have cancelled and received 100% of our money back, but not knowing how long the virus would last, we rescheduled and could not get out of ...

The cruise set off prior to virus and went well until half way round when virus caught up with us it then became a mystery tour which p & o dealt with in a brilliant way. The boat was a bit old and other were buckets around catching drips, but it didn't interfer with anything. Restaurant was excellent good service and food. The self service restaurant was ok breakfast was really good, so was ...

Arcadia is my favourite ship. I have sailed on Cunard QM2 but on that 7 days was too many. Arcadia may not be perfect the buckets are still about but she has a soul and the friendliest most helpful crew at sea. Embarkation was a bit slow as there were visas to check and a new online check in system was being trialled. It is the only time my luggage has beat me to the cabin!!! Our cabin ...

After over half a dozen wonderful cruises on Arcadia, we booked this special new years cruise without hesitation and again we were not disappointed! Everything from start to finish was very good indeed. From a smooth and quick embarkation, the very tasteful Christmas Decorations in Arcadia's already classy public areas to our lovely mini suite and generally attentive and happy crew it really ...

Chose this cruise to celebrate New Year in style and also to see Amsterdam and Bruges having never been there before or travelled on P&O before. Embarkation was fantastic with boarding passes being printed out at home before we travelled which cut out the waiting time to board the ship. All went without a hitch and we were straight on board in no time. Our cabin was very good, clean and ...

We’ve just returned from a most enjoyable new year cruise to Amsterdam on the Arcadia. The experience was absolutely fantastic with friendly and attentive staff, excellent standard of food in the Meridian restaurant and some quality entertainment. We have cruised with other companies before and found that P&O is much better value in terms of cruise price and also the price of services and drinks ...

My wife and I went on the Arcadia Christmas cruise to Norway and Denmark on 19th December 2019. We have not been on this ship before but have been on other P&O ships. I do not know how this ship gets bad reviews, mind you looking at some of the passengers I don't think they would enjoy anything. The ship was clean and tidy and well decorated for Christmas. Yes there are a few paint chips and ...
