Arcadia refurbishment.

Post by Jonty S1 » 28 Nov 2013, 18:21

If any forum member is sailing on Arcadia post refit, it would be interesting to know, what impact the "improvements" have had on the Crow's Nest area, internally and externally.

Is it possible to exit to what was a seating and sunbathing area, and if so, has that area been replicated above the new cabins?

Many thanks in anticipation.

Just read the following on P&O's facebook page....

"Unfortunately due to strong storms in Northern Europe Arcadia has been delayed in leaving her refurbishment in Germany. As a result, we have had to take the difficult decision to cancel the two night cruise departing on Sunday. We are currently contacting all of our customers by email or phone to advise them of the cancellation. Everyone booked will be getting a full refund and a future cruise credit. There are also options for passengers to move to any other two night cruise next year. We are really sorry that we have had to cancel this cruise and passengers can call us on 0843 374 0012 or contact their travel agent to discuss their options. Thank you."

Hope no one was on this cruise but I guess the 2 nighter was put in in case of delays.

We're on Jan 10 - hope all is fixed by then.

Not sure anything needs fixing, just a change in the weather. The level of hysteria on Facebook following this announcement has to be seen to be believed.

Of course it is disappointing when a cruise is cancelled but the compensation offered in terms of money back plus future cruise credit seems reasonable given that P&O do not control the weather. Neither is it their fault there is so longer a British shipyard which can handle this work.
