If you like RCI I would progress up to Celebrity and not down to P&O.

Hard to give an answer as it is down to personal taste RCI ships as you know glitzy P&O bland if you like subdued its ok service better on RCI its ok on P&O Tips a lot less on P&O and no added 15% to bar bills you pay what you see? cabins Bigger on Arcadia than Navigator Food I liked both but Arcadia could be not always to good,Arcadian Rhodes Excellent,Chops grill very good.Entertainment RCI more international Arcadia aimed at the UK market.Parking at Southampton RCI ? Have enjoyed both ships And P&O do have more choice if your thinking of a UK Departure hope it helps?

I'll add my bit to confuse you even more! Out of the four mentioned RCI (top), Princess, P&O, NCL (bottom) would be my order of quality. If your looking for better, go with A of N's suggestion , Celebrity. Regards. Wilba.

Great feed back, many thanks to all. Have any of you been on Holland America? I note these are a little more expensive also is Cunard as stuffy as I imagine it.

I have only been on a day visit to the new HAL Eurodam. The food & service was a genuine 5 star experience as opposed to the 4 star lines you have mentioned. The whole ship has the ambience of quality, & is on my list of must do cruise ships, but aquaintances of ours have just returned from this ship, experienced cruisers, & were taken aback by their bar bill at end of cruise. But then no one forces us to indulge!!! do they??? 5 star line 5 star prices.

Once again thanks for the info, I have just checked out the ship you mention "HAL Eurodam" it looks very impressive. As yet I cannot find any HAL Eurodam prices for 2010 but it has a very tempting taster 4 night cruise out of Dover on July 6th 2009 for £385 the problem is I do not think my good lady would give me the ok as we already have two booked.
