 P&O Cruises 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: 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...

Title: Med Cruise from Hell (24 June – 13 July 2019) Summary: The general condition of the ship is very tired, carpets are stained and she is needs to fairly comprehensive refit!. A previous occupant of our cabin had a flattened cigarette packet stuffed between the wall of the cabin and the ceiling to prevent the creaking noise when the ship was moving! This cruise should have been on the MV ‘Repairs & Fix it’. We found out when checking in (P&O insisted that we had been...

Title: Cruise From Hell Summary: Last Saturday, 13th July, we arrived back in the UK after a 19 day cruise on the Arcadia, it was a nightmare. From start to finish it has been a disappointment. I don’t expect to get a helpful response to this email. I haven’t got a decent response from any one yet about the experience we had, I would quite like your Chief Executive, Mr Ludlow to read this as we are regular cruisers and...

Title: Fjords, unbeatable Summary: This was a great cruise from beginning to end, beautiful scenery and a more than happy and helpful crew, the food in club dining was excellent well done to the new executive chef and his galley staff. The calls were outstanding the call in Hellesylt was great for us as we love walking and the timing of this call was really clever we sailed in past the seven sisters waterfall and the captain did a...

Title: Rust Bucket? Summary: We have just returned from a Baltic cruise on Arcadia. To say that we were disappointed with the condition of the ship would be an understatement. Having had cruise holidays over 20 years, and sailed with various cruise lines, Arcadia was by far the scruffiest ship we have sailed on. Arcadia is certainly showing her age, she is covered in rust, peeling paint, her windows are dirty, especially in the dining rooms, handrails need varnishing...

Title: Best entertainment we have seen from the Headliners, after numerous P&O Cruises. Summary: Lovely ports of call, perfect weather, calm seas. Pity about delays with excursions.Having risen at 6am for 8.30 departure, we could have stayed in bed till 7am. Still, it was an enjoyable outing to Bordeaux. Slight problem with plug in bathroom not working, but steward got it sorted.

Title: Had a brilliant time Summary: Took 84 year old mum and had a great time. Ports were interesting and enjoyed going ashore. Loved freedom dining and the food and service was excellent. This was an adult only cruise which was a bonus for us. Philip our cabin steward was a gem. Would absolutely book again 🤗
