I've been to the Fjords of Norway twice but never get bored of its stunning natural beauty. This cruise didn't disappoint. Arcadia is a lovely ship. Understated decor with a small atrium yes, but has a real wow factor from the outside, handles the seas extremely well being a Vista Class vessel and has a lovely blend of restaurants and amenities on board She's classy and elegant without feeling ostentatious or old fashioned. Tastefully refreshed after a dry-dock, she is looking and feeling great but could still do with a focal point in the Atrium to really set it off....
Having sailed numerous times on Cunard's Queen Victoria, P&O's Britannia, Aurora, Azura and Ventura, this is my 7th time on Arcadia making her my favourite by a mile.
It was true to say this particular cruise attracted an older crowd, but most ages were present (I am 37!) and they all seemed a happy and bright bunch, happy with the ship and its undoubtedly happy and attentive crew. Some lovely touches both in terms of service and little extras which were appreciated and enjoyed.

Recently refreshed with a ridiculously large wrap around balcony. Clean, modern, comfortable and well appointed.
