 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.

What a relaxing holiday
By Mary Gwillam on 05 August 2015
P&O Cruises | Arcadia Reviews

We thoroughly enjoyed our 14 days on Arcadia. What struck us was the friendliness of all the crew. This cruise was our 9th cruise with P & O & we think that it was our most enjoyable. The food was extremely good, our cabin very comfortable & we were very well looked after by our Steward Pascole. Thank you Arcadia you did us proud.

To the Arctic Circle

P&O Cruises | Arcadia Reviews

This was a cruise to celebrate my 80th birthday, which was at Honningsvaag on the day. We chose Arcadia for being adults only. We had an obstructed view cabin and was lucky to be between two lifeboats. It was the best cabin I have had and best bathroom with a bath/shower, grab rails too. (done 16 cruises) Unfortunately the weather was poor most of the time, overcast with a few sunny days out of the...

Just had a superb cruise on the fjords – check in was as smooth as silk – as was the sea – had the amazing ‘Perry’ entertaining us – have never seen the Piano Lounge so full (every night) with the laughter echoing down the stairs and through the ship – 2.5 hours non stop entertainment for 12 of the 14 nights. Other guest entertainers excellent. Food hot, more than enough and the steaks were...

Arcadia in Norway
By Mrs Pat Turner on 05 August 2015
P&O Cruises | Arcadia Reviews

Fantastic scenery, weather very good,our favourite ship Arcadia is looking a little tired, work people everywhere mopping up leaks and soggy carpets. Has anyone else noticed that the Baltic tier is losing some benefits, no longer seperate luggage areas in the shed, now no longer able to choose time to disembark, no help given at reception when we enquired just told that its nothing to do with Baltic. Things are changing at P&O and not...

Food
By Alan Weise on 24 July 2015
P&O Cruises | Arcadia Reviews

The starters and desserts were very good but the main course meals were not . They were unimaginative and unaspiring. One meal of roast beef and Yorkshire pudding was in edible – we could not get our knives through the Yorkshire and the meat was more than half gristle. We were on Freedom dining which, for the first few days was bedlam, but settled down eventually. However the service in the restaurant was generally below...

Cruising the Med
By Joan Barnes on 23 July 2015
P&O Cruises | Arcadia Reviews

We have had several cruises with P & O and have enjoyed them all. Mainly using either Ventura or Azura Ship. This time we decided to try the Arcadia. Arcadia sailed from Southampton on a 17 day cruise around the Med, We were not disappointed in our choice. The whole experience was a pleasurable one. We experienced all of the dining options and were not disappointed with any of the food we consumed. The service...

Disabled.
By Ann Bright on 22 July 2015
P&O Cruises | Arcadia Reviews

Both my husband and I had a wonderful time on Arcadia with excellent ports of call. The only disadvantage I found was the problems I encountered trying to get on deck three. My husband is in a wheelchair and the outside doors were really heavy. Also there is an incline before I could start to prop open the doors. Another point for those who need disabled toilets is the lack of them on deck 9....

Stunning Norway
By Mrs Julie Bobrucki on 05 July 2015
P&O Cruises | Arcadia Reviews

Norwegian scenery spectacular, theatre entertainment first class, food and waiters excellent, photographs too expensive but good quality. Arcadia looking a bit tired in places and had a big problem with blocked toilets both in cabins and public areas. This affected us as a party of 6 as one cabin toilet was blocked on the second day and had not been resolved when we disembarked 6 days later. It was very disappointingly handled and spoilt the...

Cruise OK
By Jim on 03 May 2015
P&O Cruises | Arcadia Reviews

The cruise was OK, but the attention to detail was missing. We elected for formal dining, a table for 6 but was 4 of us. Service was very hit or miss, my starter was not served with others and when I asked the waiter he said that it was on its way, but after the second request it appeared. This happened on two evenings. The final account should have been delivered to our cabin during...

Arcadia Singapore to Southampton
By Margaret E Gordon on 30 April 2015
P&O Cruises | Arcadia Reviews

Enjoyed our cruise but as usual caught the Arcadia cough which is still with us. Very disappointed with the cabins as the only evidence of anything different , was a big TV. The couch had seen better days and the colours are so drab. I love Arcadia but as she is only 10 years old she needs a drastic makeover. We will still go on P&O but they need to pull their socks up.

P&O Cruises | Arcadia Reviews

P & O at it’s usual high standard. Service excellent pity the weather couldn’t oblige but that was outside our control. Mobility problems were met with their usual cheerful assistance, staff prepared to go the extra mile, especially at embarkation and on return. Will go again
