We picked this cruise because it left from Southampton (no flying) and visited countries we had not seen before at the right time of year. The drive to Southampton was smooth and we arrived at 12.15, with a couple of hours to spare, the port parking were very organised and efficient. We expected to sit in the departure lounge but were processed straight away and on the ship in the buffet by ...

Eight thirty dining a big turnoff

most things pretty good without a wow factor. Dining in main restaurant was a very pleasant experience with good food and great service. The evening buffet sadly was not so good very limited choice and apathetic service We were allocated eight thirty dining which was far to late for us, we tried to change this but request was refused. Entertainment was ok, very good guest ...

Never a que. food was excellent. Waiters fast, polite, ...

My husband and I chose this cruise because as a Multiple Sclerosis sufferer I cannot cope with the intense heat during the Summer. Having sailed with P&O previously we knew that they catered well for the disabled. I was not disappointed, our accessible stateroom was both functional and attractive. The ensuite, was a wet room with plenty of handrails. I asked our cabin Stuart if he could find me a ...

We have travelled with P&O before and indeed in 2012 enjoyed a cruise on Arcadia. How things have changed on the Arcadia. The first negative was the dining arrangements, after one night of a table for 6 in the stern, we asked to be moved because it was very difficult to hear anyone speak above the vibration noise. We were moved to another table and sat with four friendly people and in that ...

Fantastic ship. First time cruising for us, was a bit worried that it would be boring as we had our two boys aged 17 and 12 with us but actually it was brilliant. Embarkation was the quickest process ever, much better than going to the airport and dealing with all what goes on there. Basically we arrived at Southampton, followed the guys directing us to our spot, they took our suitcases, next ...

Overall an enjoyable cruise on a beautiful ship. The embarkation and disembarkation was very smooth and efficient. One of the highlights of the holiday was the food in the Meridian restaurant, which we found to be excellent, as mentioned by other reviewers the service was slow on some nights, but that was not a problem to us, as we enjoyed a leisurely meal with good wine, company and good ...

This was our 4th cruise with P and O and will be our last. In general the ship is very tired and a little tatty around the edges. CABINS Bed linen very worn and pillows had musty smell. Carpet not clean in corners. Corners of skirting falling off. Burn in rather dirty settee. Mirror in bathroom needs replacing as silver coming off. Light over bed falling apart. Balcony not very clean and several ...

Arcadia J416 Western Mediterranean Another lovely cruise! Weather was much better than we expected for mid-September. Temperatures were mostly in the 30’sC. We drove down on the day of the cruise and traffic was fine, the new roadworks seem to be progressing nicely and as long as you follow the signs and not the satnav it was fine. We arrived at Ocean Terminal just before noon and the car was ...

After taking a while to persuade my husband to give cruising a try a doubt we will do any other type of holiday! From start to finish it was a wonderful, relaxing holiday.We had read reviews on here and were a little worried about Arcadia from some of the reviews but all concerns quickly left us. Arcadia is a beautiful ship, spotlessly clean with wonderful, friendly staff. I would have absolutely ...
