Overview Itinerary
The Ship
Arcadia joined the P&O Cruises' family in 2005 and underwent a rejuvenating makeover in late 2017. This mid-sized, adult-only ship showcases signature features such as glass-fronted lifts and over 3,000 works of art. The eleven passenger decks are lined with luxury cabins and suites, six restaurants, nine bars and lounges, luxury spa with thermal suite and hydro-therapy pool, art gallery, three-tiered theatre, three pools, and boutique cinema. Days at sea are your chance to make the most of the ship's facilities: Sunbathe on a lounger by Aquarius Pool or try Tai Chi in The Retreat. Enjoy a dance lesson or practice your swing at the golf nets. Lose yourself in a book in the library or indulge in a pampering massage with aromatic scented oils at Oasis Spa. Days in port let you explore independently at your own pace or why not book a sightseeing excursion or on-shore adventure?

Food
Culinary experiences on Arcadia tempt you with round-the-world flavours. Discover traditional Club Dining and Freedom Dining in the Meridian Restaurant and choose from a multi-course menu of international dishes; classic English afternoon tea with finger sandwiches, cakes, scones, and a pot of tea is also served here daily too. Savour informal-style dining at The Belvedere food court and al fresco light bites and fast food options at the Neptune Grill. Treat yourself to speciality dining for a modest cover charge - Sindhu serves modern Indian cuisine with a British twist in elegant surroundings or feast on mouth-watering steaks, fish, and seafood in The Ocean Grill.
