Very Disappointing Cruise Back from Australia to Southampton

Review for Arcadia to Europe - British Isles & Western

On the positive side we enjoyed nearly all of the ports of call. Our main disappointment was with P&O and its declining levels of service. The Carnival corporation is making changes each time we travel with P&O, which is most years. These changes were originally minor, but the cut backs are now affecting the quality of service in noticeable ways. In particular the "silver service" is gone, no more ...

P&O. Promise much - deliver little

Having previously cruised extensively with P&O we were very disappointed at the continual decline in what this company actually achieves whilst still promising a whole lot more. Every previous passenger without exception agreed that P&O cut back on what they were offering or were now charging for what was previously a given. A little for instance, they still serve petit fours after a meal but ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

Having done a "Trip of A Lifetime" on the Dawn in 2011, we found ourselves hooked/addicted and this was our third long cruise on this ship. We all know it isn't the most modern ship in the fleet, nor the largest or smallest and therein lies its charm. With just under 2,000 passengers it is neither too large nor too small. Going from Sydney to Venice and back via the Suez Canal, with many ports - ...

We embarked Arcadia on 9 March, 2012 in Sydney, enroute to Southampton on 27 April. Embarkation was easy, staff receptive. NOTE: 10 of my previous cruises have been on Princess ships. We got a very good deal from our agent $100 per day pp. Our cabin was NA grade, obstructed view on E deck, what we paid for and what we got, nothing special about he cabin, lifeboat outside window. Bed a little ...

Taking a cruise of this length requires research, planning and a willingness to accept that there may be hiccups. We loved it and everything about it and the small hiccups due to an engine problem didn't worry us at all. The ship requires rolling maintenance so occasionally, areas were not available as they laid new Astro Turf or carpet. No problem. Food is a big thing and the buffet often ...
