Arcadia Cruises

4.4
(from 25 verified customers)

The mid-sized ship Arcadia entered service in 2005 and was last refitted 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 sun lounges, and glass-covered pool on the Lido Deck. Arcadia has a casino, and offers karaoke sessions, dance lessons, and 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
