Great Christmas & New Year cruise in the Caribbean

The last time we went on Arcadia was before her refit so was pleasantly surprised when we saw her again and saw how sympathetically P&O had done the refurbishment. The ship always flowed naturally and even with the ...

Lovely Itinerary but Arcadia is now our least favourite P&O ship

Our 15th cruise with P&O and our first on Arcadia, which means that we have now been on all ships in the P&O fleet at least once, so can make direct comparisons between them all. We booked this cruise as we wanted ...

Loved our 17 night Cruise on the Arcadia

We were a party of four (aged 59, 60 & 70). We've tried to list the many highlights (of which they were lots) and to give a balanced review some things we think could be different (not many I can assure you). ...

Very eventful cruise ......

Hope you are prepared for this! We started well, a very quick check in and cases already in cabin when we arrived. Windy and cold when we left so no real sail away party. Usual lifeboat drill, with cabin ...

Disabled facilities on board the Arcadia

Wide variety of sea conditions, from a force 8 to no wind and thick fog.

Love this ship, itinerary took us to a couple of new places. The ship was full but never felt crowded. Food was lovely... I put on 4lbs. I had to make a choice every night...and the strawberry sundae was delicious! ...

There wasn't a highlight

Food and service was the poorest I have ever encountered in over 3 decades of cruising. Arcadia are obviously putting cost first and trying to attract a new breed of cruiser who are not that particular. The food in ...

Care home cruise!

This is the third cruise we have had with P & O over 7 years but the adults only Arcadia was by far the worst. The cruise is mainly targeted at elderly people and the average age must have exceeded 80 years during ...
