Life aboard Arcadia
Arcadia sails from Southampton in all directions – to UK waters, the Mediterranean, the Baltic Sea (with an overnight stop at St Petersburg), sub-Arctic Norway, Iceland, and trans-Atlantic. Check which major cities include one or two nights in port, allowing you more time for onshore sightseeing. During the second half of each year Arcadia sails from Southampton to Iceland, the Baltic, Norwegian fjords, the Western Mediterranean and the Caribbean. In September take a round trip across the Atlantic to the colourful New England and Maritime Provinces. The 2020 ‘Western Circumnavigation’ of 99 nights through Panama and Suez visits NZ and Australia. Choose from the many sectors. Excellent on-shore lecture information is provided, and one can easily go-it-alone in port. Remember, this is a child-free ship.

The mid-sized ship Arcadia entered service in 2005, massively refitted in 2013, and again in 2018. At 82,972 GT she carries 2094 passengers. This child-free vessel (no under-18s) is best suited to singles and couples, with entertainment geared to British tastes, in an informal setting and with plenty of open-plan public rooms. You’ll never feel crowded. Arcadia scores highly on cleanliness and smooth running by her sociable British officers and multinational crew members. Outdoor facilities include a wrap-around promenade deck with plenty of sunlounges, and glass-covered pool on the Lido Deck. Arcadia has a casino, and offers karaoke sessions, dance lessons, educational lectures. Entertainment is in the three-tiered Palladium Theatre, and various cabaret, lounge and pub alternatives. Note that the Captain can marry couples while at sea. The majority of passengers are older British and the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. One can dress for the fashion stakes, or just be reasonably smart. Currency is the British pound.

Accommodation
There are nine types of stateroom and 16 price grades. Seventy percent of the cabins have a balcony. Staterooms have twin beds (or king-sized bed), adjustable AC, safe, vanity writing desk with mirror, good storage areas, wide-screen TV (with major news channels, sports and movies), telephone, mini-fridge, tea/coffee-making facilities, daily steward service, and hair dryer. Inside staterooms have a picture mirror. Outsides have a picture window or porthole. Cabins with private balconies have sliding doors that open to a patio set with two recliner chairs and a small table. Some balcony cabins have a bath with shower. The Deluxe Balcony Staterooms are considerably larger with full-height glass doors. Allow for service and additional charges for, say, room-service dining, depending on the five types of accommodation.

Mini-suites are very spacious, with shower over a bathtub, DVD player, mini-stereo, coffee machine, ironing facilities, and lounge area with sofa. Special touches include bathrobe and slippers, ironing board, fruit basket, flowers, champagne and chocolates on arrival, and daily canapés. Suites are simply more spacious again, and include butler service. Owner’s and Master Suites are magnificent, with foyer, a small guest bathroom, and larger entertaining areas and balconies. Some cabins have 3 or 4 berths, inter-connecting doors for families, three cabins are wheel-chair accessible, and the seven single cabin have wide single beds.

Food and Dining
The two-tier Meridian Restaurant offers principally a range of traditional British and other cuisines. Freedom Dining means five-course dinners here at your choice of table and time. Expect a silver-service menu, and something extra special on formal black-tie evenings. Alternative restaurants, at extra charge for non-suite guests, are East Restaurant (for Asian fusion specialties) on Sky Deck, and The Ocean Grill by Marco Pierre White. The 24-hour food court, The Belvedere Restaurant, has a number of stations – for fresh omelettes, Oriental dishes, Italian pastas and pizzas.

The Neptune Grill, on Lido Deck with its retractable dome, serves snacks, refreshments and daytime meals. Next to the shops, Café Vivo serves great coffees and cookies – and also noodles to salads to bagels. There are many other lounges and bars worth discovering on a long voyage. At The Rising Sun there’s darts, karaoke, talent shows, 'pub night', dancing and sport screenings. Afternoon tea is served daily.

Entertainment
The Palladium is the three-tiered entertainment palace with all the electronic gadgetry to support major production shows, acrobats, dancers, and classical concerts. The in-house Headliners Production Company features outstanding song-and-dance presentations superbly produced for each P&O ship at its Southampton studios. There are multiple bars that host early evening karaoke, private parties, jazz and boogie, films, cabaret and shows. The Globe features art auctions by day, cinema, and by night live music with dance floor. The Screening Room is a boutique 30-seat dedicated cinema. By day there’s retail therapy in the emporium.

The Oasis Spa and Salon offer a full range of services including sauna and steam rooms, and are adjacent to a modern high-tech and well-supervised gymnasium. The sports court hosts a range of ball games for individual or tournament play, golf nets, and traditional shuffleboard and ring toss. There are two outdoor pools and five whirlpools. The walk-around promenade deck and gymnasium are there for those who wish to keep fit while enjoying the outstanding cuisine offerings.
