Atlantic/Spain and Potugal Cruise
Anthony &Brenda Cox | September 30, 2017 | P&O Cruises | Arcadia
Do not like plated meals. Prefer a chose of vegetables and not have what is as set with main course. One of the main high lites of a cruise is silver service not plated like school dinners.
The holiday was a bit of a disaster in that the shuttle bus in Cadiz crashed into a lamp post. Brenda felt that she lost two days due to being shaken up and suffering a bad back neck and shoulders. We were not able to go ashore at Oporto because it entailed a 45 minutes bus ride each way She is not 100% right yet. This was reported on the ship and forms were completed. We liked the Arcadia our favorite ship so far but in future we may consider another Cruise Linea because plated meals is a lowering of standards and expectation and does not go at all well with black tie and evening dress. Dinner was always a high light of the cruise. Not any more. Whilst the standard of food at breakfast in the help yourself restaurant on the 9th deck was good the service was poor in that we always seem to have to wait for the food to be ready. Whilst we enjoyed the cruise in many ways we got the feeling that P&O are cutting back resulting in a lowering of standards and they have lost the ‘Wow ‘ factor
