Ship Amenities

The ship’s outdoor amenities include a Lido Deck pool with retractable glass-domed cover, allowing you to have a swim no matter the weather! There’s a large promenade deck with plenty of areas to spread out and top up your tan on a sun lounger, and glass-walled exteriors transport you between each area of the ten passenger decks. Most of the public areas including shops, lounges, bars and restaurants are laid out in an open plan spreading over two floors, making it easy to hop from one establishment to the next. The ship’s artwork is tasteful and abundant, featuring 3,000 works by British artists. Visit the Crow’s Nest observation lounge to enjoy panoramic views in a comfortable setting, or the Monte Carlo casino for a spin at the roulette table. There’s also a stately library, book shop, florist, and gift shop. Bars include the Retreat, as well as the nautical-themed Spinnaker bar and traditional Rising Sun English pub.

Cabin Amenities

With five types of accommodation to choose from, you can find a size, layout and price point to suit your needs. Options include twin-bedded cabins, cabins with private balconies, mini-suites, and suites. All include standard luxury features like tea and coffee making sets, minifridges, safes, vanity and writing desks, flat-screen televisions, and fluffy duvets. Private bathrooms include tubs, showers, and washbasins, as well as personal toiletries. Upgrade to a suite and you’ll enjoy added space, balconies, and personal butler service.

Dining Options

The primary dining room is the Meridian Restaurant, which spreads out across two decks connected by an impressive spiral staircase. The décor is traditional English, with contemporary touches like fibre-optic ceiling chandeliers. For a more intimate dining experience, venture to Marco Pierre White’s Ocean Grill restaurant to dine on grilled seafood and prime steaks. East Restaurant serves Asian cuisine crafted by Michelin-starred chef Atul Kochkar, and the Belvedere offers self-service buffet options. Dine al fresco at the Neptune Grill or stay indoors at cosy Caffe Vivo.


Arcadia keeps boredom at bay for its passengers with a wide range of entertainment choices. For classic productions, visit the Palladium show lounge to enjoy plush seating spread out over three levels as well as professional staging, lighting and costumes. Classical concerts and piano music tinkle away throughout the evening, or you can hit the dancefloor at the Globe nightclub until the wee hours of the morning. Ballroom dancing is also on hand, with professional dance hosts leading the proceedings.

Sports and Wellness

Say goodbye to the stresses of daily life while you’re at sea by visiting the Ocean Spa. This luxurious wellness area includes pampering treatment rooms, a thermal suite with a sauna, steam room and hydrotherapy pool, and a fitness area where you can stretch and tone your body while enjoying ocean views. Start your day with a relaxing tai chi or yoga class at The Retreat, or enjoy the ship’s array of sporting facilities to keep fit. These include everything from a golf driving range to a sports court for football and racquetball games. And naturally, there’s a ring toss and shuffleboard area for those who enjoy classic cruise games!



Four Weeks On Arcadia To Paradise And Back


Levett, New Milton, 24th Dec 2018

Arcadia is stylish and adults only. Its classed as a mid-sized ship and whilst we prefer small ships, we were pleasantly surprised by how much we liked it. There is plenty of room to relax.

Pitcairn, Kirkintilloch, 1st Jan 2019

The entertainment is second to none and there is a paper outside your cabin every night to inform you of what is on the next day. It also gives you valuable tips when ashore.
