Disappointing New Years Eve cruise
kevin Martin | January 16, 2020 | P&O Cruises | Arcadia
We have cruised on Oceana,Ventura Brittania before and the Arcadia is now our least favorite ship. I think the biggest problem is space All the entertainment venues were too small for the amount of people trying to use the. The tables in the dining rooms were very close together and they felt chaotic. Food overall whilst good wasnt up to previous P&O standards Lunch in the main dining rooms was just snacks whereas before we have had 3 course lunches. The buffet at lunchtime wasnt much better one queue for hot and cold food with a limited choice of food.
We were a group of 4 rarely could get a table for 4 unless you wanted to wait. One of our party had a birthday whilst onboard No more waiters singing and small cake at all. This was a party cruise and quite honestly the decorations. atmosphere etc was poor compared to the NYE cruise on the Oceana 2/3 years before. Just seemed there was a lot of penny pinching going on.
