I have just returned from 4 nights on Arcadia, Auckland, Bay of Islands, Sydney, part of her round-the-Pacific-and the Americas jaunt from the UK. I had a balcony cabin A13 - on Australia Deck. Very nice.
Spacious, light, tea and coffee making facilities, comfy bed, wonderful room attendant, could not fault it - or perhaps one thing, the print in the picture frame on the wall had slipped in the frame. Nice print - alas badly framed. Irritating.
The crew were all very friendly and seemed to be relaxed and enjoying their jobs. Kid free ship with mainly older passengers so nothing was a hassle. I even used the pool.
Cabin was light, bright, spotlessly clean. Wonderful bed. Air-conditioning that worked the way it should. Tea and Coffee making facilities and and iron and ironing board were delivered to the room for me to freshen up some shirts. Wonderful room attendant - Silvestri.
One silly gripe that irritated me was the nice print, framed on the wall that had slipped within its frame. If it wasn't such a nice print I might not have cared.
