Arcardia Mini Cruises

P&O Cruises funnel

Arcadia is an ideal ship if you seek a mid-sized vessel exclusively for adults.

The 83,781 gross tonne, 2,094-passenger ship is only available to passengers aged 18 or above, so if kids running around sends shivers down your spine, fear not.

Arcadia offers the best of both worlds. It is large enough to offer a variety of dining venues, entertainment options, and relaxation choices, but small enough so as not to overwhelm.

Atul Kochar’s Sindhu restaurant is worth a visit onboard, as is the spa, with its thermal suite and hydrotherapy pool. Make sure you seek out many of the 3,000 works of art on display too.
