Arcadia Cruise Review by Stephen Penrose

  • Destination: Transatlantic

It was a great time to cruise with P & O on the Arcadia - 4 weeks away at the beginning of November when it was wet and cold in the UK. No flying, Southampton to Southampton via Madeira, the Caribbean and the Azores. Once the ship had sailed through the fog (the first couple of days) the weather was really good. Interesting ports of call and extremely easy to get ashore when in port.

The ship is very comfortable but quite tired. Everything works as it should be but there are signs around windows etc to suggest that perhaps a re-fit ought to be imminent.

The cabin was very comfortable but quite clearly had been constructed later when the P & O decided to make the Arcadia child free.

The food was excellent although my other half thought that there could have been some more plain dishes on the menu. However we didn't have a meal that was not to our tastes.

Both the cabin staff and the dining staff were very good, pleasant and ready to converse with the passengers.

We enjoyed the excursions we booked and the arrangements to meet for them was really excellent, on the pier or just off and so no nonsense about meeting in the theatre on the ship.

All in all it was an excellent cruise.
