 - 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.

Norway
By Eileen Bettney on 28 August 2018
P&O Cruises | Arcadia Reviews

Arcadia looks a lot brighter in the public areas after the refurbishment. The staff as always were brilliant. A few things that could be improved, and we have commented on it after every cruise we have been on. In the Belvedere they have great difficulty providing hot plates, particularly at breakfast time. And for some reason, the bread rolls are still behind the screens, when you go for the continental breakfast!!! Fine if you wait...

First Time Cruisers
By Diane Whitehead on 28 August 2018
P&O Cruises | Arcadia Reviews

Just returned from cruising the Norwegian Fjords aboard the Arcadia. We were thoroughly impressed by the whole experience from making the booking to checking in/embarkation and disembarkation at Southampton. Everything ran so smoothly. Once on board the Arcadia, it was: fine dining everyday in the Meridian Restaurant and an even finer dining experience one evening at the Ocean Grill (Marco Pierre White restaurant), very attentive service which catered tirelessly to our dietary requirements (nothing was...

Scenic Cruising (or Not)
By Philip Rodham on 24 August 2018
P&O Cruises | Arcadia Reviews

As a loyal P&O passenger it is sad to see such a steady decline in standards. We have just returned from a Norwegian Cruise to the Fjords. When booked it was advertised as more emphasis on scenic cruising which it was – between 5.30 am and 7.30 am, and also on sailaways after 6 pm when early diners missed it. Why we spent between 10 and 11 hours in ports where the population was 500...

P&O Cruises Arcadia cruise review
By Colette Rogers on 24 August 2018
P&O Cruises | Arcadia Reviews

Joseph my cabin steward was very good! Excellent service. Entertainment was excellent. Food not so good some days-disappointed as usually food on all ships is excellent. The mashed potato had been frozen and defrosted in a microwave-still looking water on the dinner plate. Life jacket drill was a joke!! Not one member of staff checked that jackets were correctly put on. No training for staff. Disabled people left to get on without -and how in...

Happy Days
By Dorothy Piper on 13 August 2018
P&O Cruises | Arcadia Reviews

Arcadia is my favourite ship in the P&O fleet. Having had my 4th trip on her we have just returned from a lovely cruise around the Med, taking in Italy, Spain and France. Some beautiful places, Corsica (Calvi), Sardinia (Cagliari), Rome, Oporto, Salerno (Amalfi), Almeria in Spain, and obligatory Gibraltar (for duty frees!). The ship has been recently refreshed and this makes her look even better and it was pleasant not having to get up...

A perfect cruise to celebrate our Golden Wedding
By Elizabeth Burton on 13 August 2018
P&O Cruises | Arcadia Reviews

We are an active couple who have cruised many times before. We wanted and got an adults-only cruise where we could walk and explore, learn new things and see new places and be looked after and pampered as well. We had an amazing time and have absolutely no problems recommending the experience. The service, cabin, food in both club and speciality restaurant Sindhu, activities on board, entertainment and cruise tours were all of a high...

Loved the ship
By Doreen and Barrie Wesson on 30 July 2018
P&O Cruises | Arcadia Reviews

After previously having cruised on Britannia we thoroughly enjoyed the adults only ship Arcadia. A smaller ship but still great food, entertainment and accommodation. The service was excellent and the Headliners in the theatre were particularly good. We went to the Baltic and saw some amazing places. All in all, we were highly delighted.

Mediterranean Cruise
By Jill and Alan Haigh on 07 June 2018
P&O Cruises | Arcadia Reviews

After a disastrous cruise on Ventura in February which put us off cruising this was the perfect cruise. A very friendly ship which we could not fault with lovely people and very helpful staff. The ports of call and weather were both good. It was a pleasure to enjoy all the entertainments and get a seat in the theatre. Very clean cabin and helpful steward. Well done.

Not Happy on Arcadia cruise to Croatia May 11th to 28th.2018
By Mr Luffman on 04 June 2018
P&O Cruises | Arcadia Reviews

Some of Arcadia’s lifts were out of order all the cruise. A number of Public toilets were out of use. Gents toilet outside of Crows nest out of use all of the cruise. A considerable number of main menu meals in the Meridian were warm and not cooked and had to be returned to kitchen, portion sizes have been cut also. Having been on Arcadia twice before and no complaints we were looking for a...

Cost cutting will stop people from using P&O Cruises.
By Barry Channon on 04 June 2018
P&O Cruises | Arcadia Reviews

P&O will soon run out of customers willing to stay loyal to there company, the cost cutting is beginning to show on the ship even though they try to keep asking you to fill in questionnaire forms to tell them what a wonderful job they are doing, the onboard staff were as usual fantastic and could not do enough for you, I’m not convinced P&O look after there staff the way the staff are expected...

P&O Cruises | Arcadia Reviews

Good cruise on Arcadia. Boarding was very smooth no waiting at all. Food very good, waiter service OK a bit slow at all meals in Meridian dining room.This meant that to get a seat in the theatre it was a rush to the other end of the ship Plenty of seating about the ship even when it was not sunbathing weather.The cabin was very comfortable and the steward Brian was superb there when you wanted...

Liked the lounges
By Wendy on 21 May 2018
P&O Cruises | Arcadia Reviews

Liked the lounge areas there was always somewhere to sit with a book or a drink even in the evenings. However I thought they needed more seating in the buffet restaurant very difficult to find a seat at lunchtime.

The fjiords
By Susan Turner on 18 May 2018
P&O Cruises | Arcadia Reviews

We have cruised on Arcadia previously so specifically booked this holiday as it was on Arcadia, and previous cruises on P&O Ventura and Oriana not so enjoyable for different reasons. We found the embarkation was friendly and efficient and from that moment everything ran like clockwork the service was excellent much better than previous trips the food was good and even the weather was excellent. When sadly the cruise was over the disembarking was equally...

Norway Bound
By Alan&Sally, Derby on 18 May 2018
P&O Cruises | Arcadia Reviews

We like the adults only Arcadia (only second time we’ve cruised with P&O and it’s been on the same ship) as it’s not too big, easy to navigate and has everything you need. Service was excellent from pretty much all the staff members. Food is plentiful and we would certainly recommend the fine dining restaurants on board, well worth the supplement. We participated in more activities this time as the itinerary was not too busy...
