We loved the Arcadia, a friendly, child-free ship. Art auction seem very good if that is your sort of thing.

We went on the Arcadia March 2007 starting from Acupulco throught the Panama canal to the caribbean. Although we have cruised many time before, mainly with Princess, I was somewhat disappointed with P&O. The ship was fine but the food, in my view, was not as good as Princess. The flight, which was a charter, was terrible it was a Thomas Cook plane and to say the pitch of the seats was small was an understatement. This was without doubt the worst flight I have ever experienced and in future if I could'nt get a chargable seat upgrade I would'nt go. With regard to the art auctions, we went to most of them and ended up buying seven pictures. Most were limited editions but one was an original tile by the artist Martiros Manoukian. I paid approx £2000 including shipping and I note a similar tile is on sale on the internet for $10000. It seems to me P & O are happy if they get the opening bid price so I would avoid getting carried away with bidding up the price.

There was always something going on, be that Ballroom dancing or learning the tango (I didn’t do any of this for th...

Adonia back with P&O

By Gemma Coles

Gemma Coles's blog

 It doesn’t seem that long ago when we said goodbye to the P&O Adonia. P&O Adonia left the fleet in 2015 with much sadness to lots of passengers. The ship went to Fathom Cruises which is a line dedicated to volunteer tourism. Guests were taken to locations such as the Dominican Republic to help teach English or build water filtration systems to help with poorer countries. Carnival Group have now announced that after an upgrade to the ship, with the addition of a new rest...
