I was only on the Arcadia for a 3 day trip Syd to Bris. Solo traveller paid $1000 for 3 nights in deluxe balcony cabin. Cabin was nice, although I really had to twist the Steward's arm to get a white robe. Food in Belverede (Buffet) was like Boarding School - small display and not very appertising Food in Main Dining Room was either great or average. Staff everywhere onboard I found very pleasant. There are some nice Public spaces on board being 'Adults only' it made the Swimming Pools and Buffet areas a lot more civilized. Shops were a non event. Embarkation was the fastest ever Disembarkation was a bit slow, due to different messages from P&O Staff and Border Security. The Fishermans Grain Wharf at Brisbane is around a 25min cab ride to the Airport and cost $63 - we did not pull in at Hamilton which is about 10mins from the airport.

Adults Only makes for very pleasant areas around pool and buffet.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom with Balcony and Bath/Shower
Cabin DG
Very clean with pleasant furnishing.
In one day's windy weather everything rattled out on the balcony - and the balcony door jammed. It took the carpenter 3 hrs to turn up and 5 mins to fix both problems.
