 - Ship Review Arcadia Reviews

Arcadia is a mid-sized cruise ship exclusively for adults. Combining the chic with the classic, Arcadia offers a wonderful blend of features. With one main restaurant, a grill restaurant from Marco Pierre White and the luxury of Sindhu, in addition to an expansive spa with thermal suite and hydro-therapy pool, a three-tiered theater and a boutique cinema, she offers more than a hint of extravagance.

Title: Canada J915 Summary: We have now completed 25 p&o cruises. This was our first cruise to Canada. The ship, service, entertainment, all about the usual good standard with the food an improvement. The ports of call including itinerary change was fine. The weather was poor. I would like to see the day time activities change, always the same. We look forward to the maiden Iona cruise in May. We keep returning still good value for Moines spent. Well...

Title: 16 September 2019 Summary: We booked a delux balcony cabin on P&O Arcadia to celebrate a big birthday, the cabin was rather small for a deluxe, but the beds were very comfortable the staff very good, the food was very nice. We did a couple of shows but as we would rather go dancing we tried the Globe a few times. The girl singer was great she was very versatile with a vast range of songs she was able...

Title: Disappointing Summary: This 24 day cruise to Canada from Southampton was a complete disappointment. We are very experienced passengers with P&O and we both agree this was the least enjoyable of our many cruises. To be fair not all blame could be levelled at P&O. The weather was cold and very wet throughout, we didn’t spot any wildlife either in Canada or in the sea, and the hope of seeing a colourful Canadian Fall did not happen....

Title: Wonderful Arcadia Summary: Canada – September October 2019 Wonderful cruise on Arcadia. She’s still a beautiful ship and we had plenty to do on our sea days. Entertainment by the Headliners outstanding. Other entertainment good too. Food good especially the grill in the Belvedere self-service. Tried Sindhu and Marco Pierre White restaurants and both excellent. Cabin E126 although obstructed view was excellent as was our cabin steward Marnie. Ports were lovely even though cold and wet at times...

Title: Arcadia Canada 2019 Summary: My wife and I have just returned from a 24 night cruise on Arcadia to Canada and back. I have some positive comments but also many comments which some loyal P& O followers will not agree with. To put this into context we have been on around 30 cruises in the past 25 years and patronised Cunard, Celebrity, Oceania, Princess and P & O. Arcadia is rated 3 stars + by Berlitz but I would...

Title: Baltic cruise Summary: Having recently returned from the above cruise I can only say that I will never travel on Arcadia again. I accept that routine maintenance has to be done but what went on seemed to be excessive and really the ship needs a refit, but obviously P&O will not take it out of commission for the work to be done. There were buckets in the crows nest and Piano bar, collecting water coming through light fittings...

Title: Cruise Virgins Summary: As this was our first cruise we weren’t sure what to expect. But from the parking at the dockyard to the service on the ship everything was excellent especially the entertainment. My only gripe was the onshore trips were patchy. Had a couple of excellent ones but a few that were disappointing. Would do more research next time before committing to a trip and possibly do more on our own. Entertainment was superb as was...

Title: First Ever Liner Cruise Summary: Our first even cruise was to St Petersburg, calling at the major baltic ports en route. Overall it was most enjoyable, good service, good food, brilliant waiters and room maid. Staff very happy to oblige. Entertainment was excellent 10 out of ten. The 6 days at sea was boring, although there was plenty of things to do if you were so inclined. The St.P tours (we did two) were poor. The first we visited a...

Title: Arcadia 19th August Summary: We were on the Med cruise starting on 19th August, this was our 4th cruise on Arcadia. The first impression of the ship was that I have never seen a P&O ship with so many rust streaks on it. Unfortunately it also still had Norvo virus on board from the previous cruise so no serve yourself for several days. Restrictions came off for about 5 days before being put back in place when it flared...

Title: Med cruise Summary: Recently returned having avoided norovirus which seemed to have evidence on the previous cruise but was overcome during the middle part but returned for the latter part of the cruise. Not the first time we have been on Arcadia and it seems as though a refit is in order, she is looking a bit tired and frayed round the edges. We noticed that corners are being cut all round yet prices are as high as...

Title: Dissappointment Summary: So not happy about this ship the food was well below the usual standard of P O hardly hot compared to Oriana in Feb to March when I was on for a month not one bad meal I have done 28 cruises with P O and this was the worst one been on this ship twice before and it was much better then. What with noisy cabin and the ship is rife with the norovirus...

Title: Baltic Cruise 3 August Summary: 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...

Title: Pretty good cruise – despite all the adverse comments we were given prior to the start of the cruise – 14 nights to Norway , Fjords, Iceland and Dublin Summary: We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise – the entertainment could have been better – the food was very good and it was our first experience of Freedom Dining as we were finding 2nd Sitting too late – mind you we never arrived in the restaurant before 8.50! We dined in Sindhu twice and also in the Ocean Grill – excellent meals. Astonishing was the pick of the shows – we had seen it last year on...

Title: Med Cruise Summary: Food good, but major works going on for the whole of the 19 days we were aboard. Lots of noise because of that. Rusty and dirty looking. Air vents taped up. Since we have arrived home I have been very ill indeed and on antibiotics. Having contacted other people who were on the cruise, they are also sick. I think it may have something to do with the air conditioning units. We stayed in Malaga...

Title: Mediterranean Cruise Summary: We sailed on our first ever cruise on Arcadia on 24th June 2019 and unfortunately were beset with problems from the outset with advice being received 3-days before we sailed that one of our seven stops was being cancelled due to ’emergency repairs’ being required to the ship which would necessitate a 2.5-day stop in Malaga. We only found out whilst on the ship that these repairs related to clearing some fishing gear trapped around...

Title: Cruise leaving Southampton on 24th June Summary: After over 300 nights of cruising, we have had some experience f cruising with P and O and I can honestly say that this cruise did not live up to our expectations or match previous experiences, at all. The whole experience was shattering. We were not informed beforehand that we would be misssing the port of Messina and spent three days in Malaga whilst repairs were carried out on the propeller. We only found that...
