Post by david63 » 28 Aug 2017, 10:18

Anyone heard any details of this refit - with only two months to go surely there must be some details around.

Mr Google cannot find anything either. However why is she having this refit as its only 3.75 years since her last one when normally its 5 plus. Makes you think that maybe there is a serious engineering fault being remedied.

I don't suppose it has nothing to do with the fact that I will be sailing on her next August ?

Possibly - but it has been planned for some time now

I doubt it - but it may be due to me sailing on her in September 2018 :thumbup:

Probably just getting a quick touch up of paint and a hoover through. Not worth the publicity.

We had a look round Arcadia last year. She wasn't for us.

Always thought that Arcadia had the looks of a Caravan rather than an Ocean Liner ... :thumbdown:

Well I don't know what that says about me as it's one of my favourite ships.
I was looking to book at cruise on her when it was taken of sale due to the refit.

When we were on Arcadia ( at least 6 years ago ) they had a huge problem with plumbing, I am told by a reliable source the problems still exist so perhaps the refit is to sort it out once and for all.

It says one of three things ... perhaps ;)

a) You like caravans ?

b) You like pale / insipid / bland / contemporary woodgrain shades ?

c) You just love Arcadia ?

ps ... my favourite ship is Adonia :lol:

It was getting past the gaggle of pensioners stopped in the doorway gossiping.

No hang on . That was Sainsbury's last week...
