This was a last minute grabbed bargain to holiday on a new and very large cruise liner. We were not disappointed. Arvia is a lovely ship with a large number of bars and dining areas. We had a balcony cabin on deck 10 towards the front of the ship. The cabin although perhaps smaller than those we are familiar with, but adequate. Our main complaint was the noise of the toilets being flushed in the cabins above, below and next door. Food on board is typically P&O especially in the MDRs. Glass House menu had changed considerably and so with nothing to our liking we never tested the food here. The Quays is great for Roasts and/or fish &chips. We booked the Retreat for the 15 night cruise and really enjoyed the wine, beer and soft drinks provided. There is no limit to how many coffees or beers you could drink! The only downside of the Retreat was users reserving particular sun beds and sun pods every day. I went up at 7am several times to find the only sun beds left were cramped up under the shades. It was even more frustrating when certain individuals reserved the sun pods on port days and only used them for an hour upon their return to the ship. Another negative for us was the aqua dome. The intolerable high sound levels for the children’s movies etc were impossible and made the area no go for us.. However, we did have a lovely cruise and would highly recommend Arvia.
