Just retuned from 14 nights...

Sail Date: /
Just retuned from 14 nights in the Baltic on this ship it is our first P&O ship in almost 10yr and well the ship is in need of some major works on her there can be damp smells in some common rooms and bars especially the crows nest and the spa area nr to the hydro pool Also the main pool is staring to look tatty with tiles missing etc The ship is having her 5 yr dry dock later this yr so I hope they fix the issues as she is a lovely ship The biggest let down is the atrium area very disappointing and nothing like the Cunard atriums on there ships of the same class But as an overall she is a nice ship with everything you could want on a ship for adults only Will I sail on her again well yes we have already booked.

Just returned home after 14...

Sail Date: /
Just returned home after 14 nights on this lovely ship although we like this ship for its homely atmosphere it was spoilt by the amounts of buckets scattered about catching leaks.....such a shame that such a lovely ship should be allowed to get into this state.....please P&O can you please sort this before I go back on next year.

Party time

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Short cruises are different to longer cruises, more parties which took over pool areas (seemed the casual night could have been themed as we had plenty of Hawaiian outfits.

Brilliant first time experience of the Norwegian fjords

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group
A great family holiday in a beautiful area, and loved cruising through the fjords at night when it never really got dark. We found that "Adults only" ships are not for us, even though I am 74. We find that a broader age mix provides a more pleasant and lively atmosphere. Freedom dining, for us, was also an experiment that failed. Back to second sitting club dining next year. We tried the element of "Freedom" by turning up at the restaurant at various times, but invariably we were given a pager and sent away. So we would go to a bar, order drinks, and then as soon as the drinks arrived the darned pager would sing out its not so jolly beeps. It was only after 2030 that we could reasonably expect to get a table immediately. On that basis we shall return to second sitting club dining next year. We shall then be able to go confidently for pre-dinner drinks at 2000ish, then toddle off to the restaurant for 2030, to be greeted by the same waiters each night, and to be seated at the same table. Each to his own of course, but I know which option is the more relaxing for me.

Arcadia

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We flew to Hong Kong and stayed overnight before boarding Arcadia. P&O looked after us fantastically well from the moment we landed until we flew home from Singapore after spending two days there and after 10days on the ship. Wonderful care on ship also. Food was great as was our cabin. No complaints, great cruise.

Wait until it has had a refit, plain and simple.

Get up an go to the restaurant for breakfast. It is so much more pleasant than engaging in the buffet scrum. On second thoughts, you keep doing the buffet and leave the restaurant peaceful and uncrowded for me.
