Additional details

Sail Date: Sep 2016
Cabin: Deluxe Stateroom with Balcony and Bath/Shower

There are not many ships that cross the Atlantic twice. P&O and Cunard are regularly on this trip. Phoenix also offers this route but there you are 44 nigths on the ship. We also had to book with one of these companies. We booked the trip from England to USA and Canada from 9th of September 2016 to the 5th of October 2016. Arcadia allowes smoking only on the outer deks. If these deks are colsed (as they are when the winds are strong) you cannot smoke anywhere else. P&O do not have indoor smoking lounges! We would also like to warn future passengers, that they have to pay extra (12.95 - 16.00 £ p.p.) if they want to eat good food. The self service restaurant (Belvedere on deck 9) is one of the badest restaurants where we ever have been. The public rooms are not big enough for more than 2000 passengers and therefore often crowded.

Port Reviews

New York (Manhattan)

Taxis are few near the ship, you have to find one in the streets.


We stayed on the ship because tendering is a waste of time.


We walked into the city and went eating there.

Portland (Maine)

We took a taxi.

Saint John (New Brunswick)

We walked.


we walked.

Quebec City

Taxi & Restaurant (Saint Amour) best place to eat.

Sydney (Nova Scotia)

As there was another ship at the pier, we would have to tender (waste of time) but the afternoon tea on the ship was very good.
