Arcadia Cruise Review by Sybella

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2015
  • Destination: the Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Mini Suite with Balcony and Bath/Shower

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.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Taormina (Messina)

Ship docked in the town. We walked off but not easy with a rollator. Traffic was manic!

No disabled access to most buildings.


We have been here several times so as it was so hot we just stayed near the ship and enjoyed the lovely market on the quayside.


Fabulous sail in and out. Stayed on ship as there are just too many bridges for mum and her rollator.


Ship docks right in the town, so easy to get off and have a walk. Don't forget to try the churros!


Roadworks are nearly finished so getting easier to find the docks.
