Firstly, I wanted to give more stars, I really did, but having had my first cruise in 2013 on Oriana which was wonderful, this one was just not worth all the money. Embarkation was easy and at the exact time stated on our tickets. On board swiftly and all luggage was outside our cabin (E78 - outside, restricted view). Cabin was perfect, mid ship and above the prom deck so no need to use lifts ...

So many things to comment on, easier to bullet point: No silver service at dinner anymore = rushed courses Lack of vegetables generally = tiny meals Often had to ask for after dinner mints, water & liqueurs Forced gratuity = rude and unbothered staff (you can opt out but reception staff quite rude) No more Jacuzzis ? not allowed under British Law (again, according to reception ...

Eventually we were moved to a new cabin ...

This cruise took place over New Year, we went in order to get a bit of sunshine. It was not Arcadia's fault sunshine was at a minimum.

We went straight to the self service restaurant and had lunch and within a short ...

This was only our second cruise the first being with Royal Caribbean, no comparison. The ship looked OK and our cabin although a bit dingy was passable, however, it soon became apparent that this ship was getting past it's sell by date. It rocked and rolled in a sea that didn't look that bad, whether stabilisation was being used I do not know but it certainly did not seem like it, I have had ...
