  1. Because it's 14 nights you will have 4 formal nights not 3. My guess would be the sea days of 5th, 7th, 13th, and 16th. Maybe we should run a sweepstake 🙂
  2. Is the no MDR wine waiter a recent thing as we had them on Arcadia in November?
  3. We're booked on an October RCI cruise next year and their cruise planner is light years ahead of P&O's. For a start it's much easier to navigate. And it's been possible for a while now to book online select dining, my time dining, shore excursions and spa treatments, and buy internet and gifts. It's not yet possible to pre-book entertainment but at some stage you can reserve seats at shows. None of this is available yet on our June P&O cruise next year. It's been said by many others on here but P&O really needs to up their game.
  4. Yes we are thanks, only a couple more sea days left.
  5. Currently on Arcadia and in our balcony cabin we have one UK 240v 3 pin socket, one 220v round pin socket, and 3 x 115v sockets so it is best to take adapters as mentioned by @terrierjohn
  6. We're currently on Arcadia and, whilst norovirus hasn't been mentioned by the captain, he has stated there are reported gastro problems with some passengers. So they have instigated removing anything surplus on tables such as pots and menus and strict handwashing when entering the buffet. Also handrail cleaning is much in evidence and cleaning of chairs in the MDR when guests have finished. I'm wondering if it's tied to it's a 28 night cruise? No scientific reasoning but just a question.
  7. Same on Arcadia, also shower caps only provided on request.
  8. Normally I would agree with your comment but for us we've found the table for two experience on Arcadia the worst on any cruise ship we've been on, including other cruise lines. Which is a shame as we are enjoying the ship apart from that. Whilst we used to eat at larger tables nowadays we prefer tables for two.
  9. We're currently on Arcadia and agree with what you say. And the two tables in your top picture have a larger gap than most of the other side by side tables. For the first time ever on a cruise we've been eating more in the buffet in the evening and find it a much more pleasant experience.

  11. We've just travelled across the Atlantic to Barbados. We had fog each day until we got to Madeira where it was sunny and warm. From there each day at sea was mainly sunny and 25C - 28C. Just our luck though that today in our first visit to Barbados has been heavy rain for most of the day so they gave us the option of cancelling our booked scenic and beach tour with a full refund.
  12. Currently on Arcadia and they offered 25% off the cover charge for Sindhu and Ocean Grill for the first couple of nights.
  13. We agree with your comments and prefer just tables for two as you do. And I don't mean like those on the Arcadia that are classed as side by side but with about an inch between them. How they can be classed as tables for two is something even a politician would have trouble explaining. And I don't understand why they don't occasionally use any empty tables available in the club dining restaurant to seat freedom dining guests like we've seen Celebrity do at times. Also even use tables for four occasionally as tables for two as other lines do.
