Having been on the Ventura we said we would never go with P & O again. However, with a chance of the Golden Triangle thrown in, we decided to give it another go. What a great trip. The Arcadia does lack the wow factor and could do with some sparkle , renewal of sanitary ware, a lick of paint. The theatre has too many pillars spoiling the view of the stage. On the plus side, the bed was comfortable, the water constantly hot, the cabin clean, tea and coffee. The food was very good, the staff friendly, helpful, smiling and very hard working. Margaret Gilmore, Brian Conley, Shaun Wallace, Maurice Grumbleweed, singers, dancers etc, very good. We only took one trip and did the rest ourselves. The port talks covered self guiding. Went for set dining and had a fabulous table with excellent waiters. They were helpful and coped with us swapping seats and joking with them. Our steward,Bosco, always smiling.

What a lovely surprise

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom with Balcony and Bath/Shower
Cabin DE A115
Lots of wardrobe space. Comfortable bed. Balcony needed some varnish. Clean. Good shower. However, could do with some modernisation and redecorating. Floor tiles and sink chipped.
