Introducing Arcadia

Arcadia is an extravagant, luxurious ship where you can pause to admire the sea views as you travel between decks in her signature glass-fronted lifts. That is when you're not dining in one of her many restaurants or enjoying all the exciting entertainment on offer.

About Arcadia

Dedicated to foodies and art lovers, enjoy a sophisticated, adults only cruise and take your time lingering over her expansive art collection of 3,000 works.

You’ll find a range of fine dining restaurants onboard to amuse and please your palate, including the celebrated Marco Pierre White’s Ocean Grill. For light meals throughout the day and evening you can choose from several informal restaurants, bars and cafes. These include Caffe Vivo for speciality coffee and snacks and the Piano Bar where you can relax in your surroundings while enjoying a few drinks.

To really unwind, make a visit to the spectacular Oasis Spa with its whirlpool, hydro massage pool and aromatic showers. Once loosened up you could catch one of the latest film releases in the Screening Room. With the Art Gallery’s collection being so large, you can return again and again to find something interesting, challenging or beautiful to capture your admiration.

Arcadia also offers plenty of interesting and fun activities for her guests in the evenings. You can take a chance and roll some dice in her Monte Carlo Casino. Have an early dinner and then take in one of the lively shows at The Palladium theatre. Or opt for an evening at The Globe theatre, which offers an eclectic mix of entertainment – it could be some comedy, a bit of drama or some live music.

There are stylish, contemporary and comfortable accommodation available too. All cabin categories have TV and radio, with some options including king-sized beds and sea view balconies. For comfort, dining and entertainment, Arcadia offers a chic, fun and lavish cruise experience.
