We had never travelled with this line before but as this cruise from Sydney to Southampton through the Suez was on our bucket list, we packed our formal wear and headed off to Sydney to join our ship Arcadia.
We had an easy boarding as we arrived mid afternoon and were on board and into our cabin C129 by 3pm.
Nice cabin, good position half way between aft and midships stairs, starboard side. Nice size balcony with two reclining chairs, footstool and small table. Big enough to hold the washing line! Very dull colours on board this ship including the cabins. Nice size wide screen TV but repetetive programming. BBC news and Sky news available. Storage good except for shelf space, and the tiniest safe we have ever had on a ship. Bathroom small but nice to have a bath and good lighting in the bathroom for makeup application, but it got very hot in there after showering. Difficulties with Aircon and Hot water resolved by ships engineers, thankfully. Sofa bed, chair and desk by the balcony gave us good room for having drinks with friends before dinner.
