 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: Cost cutting will stop people from using P&O Cruises. Summary: 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...

Title: Good Cruise Summary: 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...

Title: Liked the lounges Summary: 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.

Title: The fjiords Summary: 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...

Title: Norway Bound Summary: 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...

Title: Enjoyed the cruise Summary: This was the first time on Arcadia, we had an inside cabin which was kept clean by our steward, but found the drawers were difficult to open, and cabin needs some TLC as in some other area’s around the ship! Very disappointed with the venue for captains welcome and cocktail parties, in the swimming pool covered area which was very echoey and could not hear the captain speak properly and was very impersonal! We did...

Title: Dubai to Southampton 19 days Summary: Arrived Dubai airport which was chaos,around 3,000 trying to get through security and no directions of which queue to use. Breakfast at hotel and then onto the ship, by the time we boarded it was late afternoon. (poor organisation) We had booked a cabin with restricted view but this was with an obliterated view due to a large life boat across the large window which is repeated along the whole ship. (Do not book a...

Title: Hong Kong to Southampton Summary: My wife and I flew out to Hong Kong to join the tail end of Arcadia World Cruise 2018. We flew with BA from Heathrow T5, a surprising haven of tranquillity, and had a comfortable night in our hotel. After a good breakfast, we joined our fellow passengers for embarkation. I honestly thought there may be quite a few of us but did not expect 640 souls. Embarkation took an age, nowhere as easy as...

Title: Part of world cruise Summary: Singapore to Dubai (part of world cruise) Emirates flights were excellent Crown Plaza excellent Arcadia is a Lovely smaller ship, we had a great holiday, the service and food excellent as usual. It’s shame about the visa problems for Goa such a mix-up. Disembarkation in Dubai was a shambles and the Novotel was poor.

Title: World cruise or bus stop service? Summary: The concept of a “World Cruise” is somewhat undermined when the voyage is split into “segments”. On board account has to be settled many times, hundreds of new passengers to assimilate. The restrictions placed upon on-board purchases of alcohol are most frustrating, and retrograde. Had it not been for the first rate attitude and service provided by crew members, I doubt if we would consider P & O again.

Title: Single Leg Summary: Quite agree with the previous reviewer there was definitely an air of class distinction emanating from the passengers going ‘Southampton to Southampton’. Us and them! We loved San Fransisco spending four days there. The cruise started well with good visits to two islands in Hawaii then cyclone Gita came on the scene. Will we dock at A Mercian Samoa?? Yes, we did. Will we dock at Tonga?? No, we didn’t. Captain did say he looked...

Title: World Cruise Single Leggers Summary: One of the main reasons for booking this cruise was to visit Hawaii and in particular, Pearl Harbour, which was achieved and was great. San Francisco, Auckland and Sydney all good. The Arcadia cabin was comfortable if a tad shabby (chips and marks in the bath, large picture mark on the wall). Clear evidence of cost-cutting by P & O but then again they’re not Regent or Silversea. Disappointed we were unable to visit two...

Title: Caribbean cruise 2017 Summary: The ship is in need of some updating. P&O missed out when they did away with the aft decks and built extra cabins on. It has removed a popular facility i.e. a large pool and plenty of sheltered sitting areas. The quality of the food declines with each holiday; very few edible cakes at afternoon tea although pies and sausage rolls were a welcome innovation. The entertainment was excellent although some was not our particular...

Title: Christmas & New Year Cruise 2017/8 Summary: Although we have done many cruises over the years with different cruise lines and ships this was our first Christmas cruise. We really enjoyed every minute, the ship was decorated through out, even outside the cabin but next time (yes we have booked for this December on the same ship) we would take a cabin door decoration to stick on for extra decoration and blue tac to put up the Christmas cards we took. The...
