P & O's Arcadia was contracted for in
2000 by Holland America. But in 2003 she was allocated to
Cunard to become the Queen Elizabeth further unifying the
Carnival brands with the Vista class hull. Prior to
launching the ship she was transferred to P & O and named
Arcadia. She still sports the Cunard style funnel.
P & O Arcadia also uses the Azipod propulsion system and is the
only ship in P & O's fleet to have such.
Today she is an adults only cruise ship. There is a 2
story main dining room serving traditional British cruise fare
together with 3 specialty restaurants. Together with a 3
tier theatre, numerous bars and lounges, and a movie theatre
featuring a 30 foot screen.
Staterooms offered include an inside stateroom of approximately
181 SF to the approximately 606 Sf suites (including balcony).
