My wife and I went on the Arcadia Christmas cruise to Norway and Denmark on 19th December 2019. We have not been on this ship before but have been on other P&O ships. I do not know how this ship gets bad reviews, mind you looking at some of the passengers I don't think they would enjoy anything. The ship was clean and tidy and well decorated for Christmas. Yes there are a few paint chips and ...

We really enjoyed our 14 night cruise to the Baltic. We have cruised with Cunard, Celebrity and P&O in the past and Arcadia exceeded our expectations. Admittedly, the atrium doesn’t have the wow factor of other ships but it more than compensated in terms of friendliness and entertainment. We found the food in the dining room consistently good both at lunch and dinner. The buffet could be very ...

This was a special holiday for us – my mum was 80 last year and always wanted to visit St Petersburg, but she won’t fly – so a Baltic cruise we thought would be ideal. This was our second cruise we had wanted to book the cruise to the Baltics last year but had left it late to book, as there was 3 of us and we couldn’t get a deal for a cabin for 3. Last year we went on a short cruise (6 days) with ...

A trip around the Baltics

We chose this cruise as we had been on this ship last year so we were familiar with the layout. We had been recommended to do the cruise around the Baltics by several people who were on last years cruise, The embarkation for the ship was fantastic, within half an hour of us arriving at the port we were on the ship. The only thing that held us up was trying to find a porter with a trolley to take ...

We'd not cruised for nearly 20 years, and this time had a (now) grown up 19 year old daughter and an 83 year old mother in tow. We chose the Baltic as I had Danish heritage and we wanted to go somewhere we'd not normally visit. We had connecting balcony cabins on E deck (E152/E156). The steward opened the balcony so we could share it, and we found the space and cabins really comfortable. ...

Amazing locations disappointing ship

This was our third cruise with P&O and to say we were disappointed with the ship would be an understament. The locations we visited were spectacular, the crew and staff could not do enough for you, but the ship and P&O seem to be failing in many areas. The following is just a few examples of the issues we had on the cruise, some may seem trivial but all together they had an effect. The ...

Fabulous Ports of Call

Always wanted to go to the Baltics, but this cruise stood out as not many go to all the Capital cities plus St Petersburg, but this one did and the ports of call certainly didn't disappoint. St Petersburg was the stand out highlight , but Stockholm, Helsinki, Copenhagen, Oslo and Tallin were also excellent stops. Embarkation/Disembarkation was extremely smooth and easy. We went on Arcadia ...

Disappointing cruise with very limited gluten-free food

We chose this ship purely for the Geiranger Fjord destination. The fjords were beautiful. I asked at Reception what time we would be docking in Geiranger, because we wanted to wake up early and see the ship sail in. I was given a time, but the ship actually docked much much earlier, so we missed the sail in, despite getting up early, which was very disappointing. Geiranger was a beautiful, as ...

Chose this cruise for the itinerary as we had never been to the Baltic and it was on Arcadia which last year our 14 nighter on her was very good with no complaints at all. The itinerary was excellent as was embarkation and debark. Cabin steward, though rushed off his feet, did a wonderful job but even he admitted that 18 cabins (12 when he first started with P&O) meant he didn't have enough ...

Having sailed on arcadia before on a leg of her world cruise we had no hesitation booking this Baltic trip. We wanted to see some new destinations and as we had not been to any of these ports before it fitted the bill perfectly, also on all our previous cruises we had never sailed out of Southampton so the whole deal was totally new to us. Arcadia was just as we remembered ,a nice friendly ...
