Great first cruise

We really didn't know what to expect as this as our first cruise but have no complaints really as we thought it was wonderful and service very good at all times. The decor was fine and we are shocked by some peoples comments about The Arcada as it hasn't been our experience at all. The choice of food was excellent wherever on the ship we chose to eat and our cabin was kept beautifully clean. We ...

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 ...

We didn't know what to expect as this was our first cruise. Southampton: Embarkation was brilliantly organised CPS (Cruise Parking service) Attendants took our cases from the boot, next time we saw them was in our cabin so for us more relaxing then flying. Disembarking: I was a bit worried but needn't have been, as we got a note in the cabin telling us what to do on the day. We took ...

This was my first cruise and after reading the recent reviews I was very concerned that I would not have enjoyed it . There was no need to worry as it was brilliant I could not fault this ship in anyway . The crew and staff were very helpful . our cabin steward Robert was very helpful and always had a smile . the cabin had plenty of room and the bed was very comfortable. the entertainment was ...

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. So we got to Southampton slightly earlier than our check in time but that was not a problem. Checking in the car was smooth and easy, checking in to board the ship was equally easy. We went straight to the self service restaurant and had lunch and within a short ...

The Worst Cruise of My Life

Myself and my disabled wife paid £3000 for a twelve night trip aboard Arcadia sailing from Southampton back to Southampton returning on the 9th December 2014. From the outside Arcadia looked great and we were very excited when waiting to board her, our excitement disappeared when we entered our mini suite number Delta 001, it was very tired and dated and there was mildew on the bathroom tiles in ...

What a travesty the previous reviewer of this cruise has provided. 1. The staff throughout the ship were excellent and could not have done more for you. The restuarant staff in particular made it a pleasure to be going to each meal. The food was of a good standard always hot. always plenty of choice. 2. It was November/December which means it is more likely to be rough. It was indeed rough on ...

Having experienced great holidays on Princess Cruises we decided to try something different. On booking we were reassured by P&O Sales that we had the best cabin (C097) and there was no point putting us down for an upgrade but it turned out to be the worst and we ended up sleeping in Customer Service Reception on a bench seat opposite the Reception desk. Eventually we were moved to a new cabin ...
