Arcadia Cruise Review by ericiris
- Sail Date: October 2016
- Destination: Mediterranean
- Cabin Type: Outside Stateroom with Bath/Shower (Obstructed View)
Regarding the ship itself we found the entertainment left a lot to be desired with the exception of the Headliners theatre group and Jon Martin, But why did everything have to be so loud? singers in a constant battle with the band and conversation in piano bars nigh on impossible.
We found the staff throughout the ship to be both friendly and efficient and our cabin steward in particular was outstanding.
However some thought should be given to the dining arrangements. The Meridian restaurant is on two floors the upper floor designated for " freedom" dining where in theory you can eat at any time between 6 and 9 not so! you join a queue for an average of 10 to 15 minutes to receive a bleeper and a further wait while the poor harassed staff do there best to find a table. Why on earth both restaurants cannot be fixed dining and those that want to eat at anytime can use the Belvedere .
We made some good friends and overall had a good time but feel we are more suited to the smaller ships such as the Fred Olsen Cruise Line provides.
