Sail Date: Nov 2015
Cabin: Suite with Balcony and Bath/Shower

P&O Arcadia 25/11/2015 to 19/12/2015 Madera – Antigua – St Kitts – Grenada – Dominica – Barbados – Azores – Vigo

The cruise was uneventful and very relaxing as you spend 16 days at sea and even in a force 10 on the way home which is why we could not get into the Azores and went to Vigo instead the ship was as steady as a rock.

The condition of the ship was a different matter as for 11 days decks 2,3,4,5, mid ship stank of sewage and drains which was very strong at times, there was also a problem with the slatted aluminium roof strips on the viewing deck 11 port side as several had been ripped off by wind and others were rattling loose and had stress fractures which should they have come loose could have taken your head off and after reporting it to the reception, security and 2 bridge officers over 5 days I was amazed nothing was done even thought it was at most a 15 minute job to secure the strips.

Cabin Review

Suite with Balcony and Bath/Shower

Cabin AC

cabin was ok but bath got in the way of your left leg when sat on the toilet that is only a 3/4 toilet or child's size and hard to use better get rid of the bath and have a big walkin shower.
