 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: Christmas cruise Summary: This cruise was a great disappointment. There was little apart form a few decorations to suggest it was Christmas or New Year. As the ship has no ballroom there were no celebrations during the day on a large scale. Indeed we saw nothing of any interest. A very great disappointment was that there was no screening of the Queens Speech or Downton Abbey or strictly come dancing. However when it came to Boxing Day you...

No TVs guide for at least a week. No Xmas films on in cabin . Iced water machine not working...

Title: Caribbean Christmas Summary: Our 17th cruise with P&O (we generally book suites ) but probably our last .Told that check in “improved” to match that of Britannia ?.Outside cruise terminal people shivering with their luggage on the pavements . Chaos when we arrived. No priority disembarkation anymore, given time of 8.45am, joined massive immoveable queues from every deck and had to wait like sardines for around 30 minutes as “large amount of luggage was still being removed from...

Title: Arcadia Caribbean Cruise, Christmas/New Year 2015 Summary: Just returned from Arcadia’s Christmas/New Year cruise. The ship was beautifully decorated, the transatlantic crossings pretty calm. There could have been more entertainment during the day, particularly on the many sea days. There were the usual quizzes, port talks and guest speakers and of course dancing lessons. The screening room showed some very good films but it is only small and seats had to be pre-booked. The more popular films were shown again in the...

Title: ARCADIA CHRISTMAS Summary: The experience started badly. Given the wrong category at the outset,given a boarding time of 15 00 hrs, finally boarded at 16-20 hrs (having been at the terminal since 13-30) we were too late for safety drill. The first Port of call, Azores, after 3 days at sea, was too short. Christmas at sea was a non-event. On reaching The W.I. each stay was too brief, We appeared to be last in , first out...

Title: Carribbean Christmas cruise on Arcadia Summary: This was our first Christmas at sea and we were on our favourite cruise ship. .While we did enjoy the cruise it did not live up to expectations. P&O sent us a letter just prior to the cruise telling us they had improved the embarkation procedure. In the event all the passengers we spoke to said it was the worst embarkation they had experienced. The same could be said of disembarkation; we got off the...

Title: Christmas and New Year Cruise to the Caribbean Summary: Unfortunately, we have to be frank – this was not their best. We have cruised with P&O before and found them excellent! The last occasion was in 2011 to the Norwegian Fjords on Ventura. Also we have travelled to the Caribbean before at Christmas, plus the Mediterranean on both Aurora and Oriana. In total on seven occasions. Each occasion has been amazing, except this one. We found the ship was extremely unstable. We found the...

Title: Xmas & New Year Cruise Summary: Without doubt an excellent cruise, the Captain Aseem Hashmi MNM related very much to the passengers, and the entertainment manager was the best we have had in over ten cruises. Food and service again was excellent, we chose to cancel the automatic gratuities and gave according to service, which nearly doubled what P&O would have taken, this way works for us. We did observe that whilst Pleasant Polite and Efficient The Indian crew/staff were not...

Title: 3* AT BEST!!! Summary: Extremely disappointed with our 2nd trip on the Arcadia. The internal decor has not changed since our voyage 9 years ago, so in dire need of a full refurbishment. Curtains hanging down, tape holding carpet joins together, storm damage which occurred in Oct 2015 not yet repaired. P & O standards have dropped dramatically in all departments with the exception of the service afforded by the waiters & our cabin staff. Some excursions we booked...

Title: Holiday on board Arcadia Summary: Just returned from cruising to the Caribbean on P&O Arcadia. We could not fault the ship at all. Service from all members of staff was excellent. However very disappointed with the entertainment. I always look forward to the “sail aways” and like to join in with the flag waving and singing but this time there was just no atmosphere at all generated by the entertainment team. Even the Entertainment Manager was boring with his repetitive...

Title: Bruges cruise Summary: This was a weekend cruise to Belgium. I have been on many cruises and was surprised at the lower standard of food and menu choice on this occasion. Also, the location of the disco in the atrium was inappropriate. The disco tended to play a lot of “club” music, the sound of which travelled up to all the bars ,and sitting areas overlooking the atrium. This meant it was not possible to use any of...

Title: Dusappointing Summary: Cruise included Amsterdam and Bruges unfortunately decision was made to cancel the Bruges visit. We were taken nowhere in its place and therefore spent the day at sea , considering it was November this was not great! . No compensation was made or offered to passengers again not great as p and o obviously benefitted with people spending in shops, bars etc.

Title: looking after passengers Summary: Food was excellent – however changing days at tenerife and gran canaria was a disaster as hence missed both large markets and shops in tenerife were closed. We also left ports earlier than we have ever known (madeira, lanzarote and lisbon at 4.30pm !! ). Despite leaving lisbon our last port at 4.30pm we still arrived at southampton before 12pm !! – hence times were not arranged for customers enjoyment but to suit p&o t
