Interesting, reading other reviews about Arcadia in recent cruises. Our opinion regarding the overall condition of the ship (poor) is echoed by most others recently reporting. Our cruise, too, affected by hygeine issues. In earlier years, maintenance of the ship was an ongoing activity, but it would seem that, with the gradual reduction in crew numbers, this essential activity is being overlooked. A major refit is necessary to restore Arcadia to her former condition, but this would mean taking the ship out of service for at least two weeks. There is no gap in the schedule for this. If Carnival ignores these shortcomings, previously loyal P & O customers (us- 23 cruises so far) will vote with their feet.
