    Cool Cruiser
  1. I'm pretty sure there is normally a little card left to that effect.
  2. It should have been placed in your cabin (or fridge, depending on the individual steward) during the day of the first Black Tie night. Not that this helps you now, but at least you'll know next time.
  3. In the last few years I've seen Tom O'Connor (stand up comedian and Name That Tune among other shows) and Roy Walker (stand up and Catchphrase among other shows). Sue Holderness (Only Fools & Horses and The Green Green Grass) was a guest speaker on Arcadia on a recent Med. cruise. Probably the funniest act I've seen on a cruise and who may not be quite so well known as Messrs O'Connor and Walker is a guy by the name of Mike Doyle. He first came to fame as a contestant on Bob (Monkhouse) Says Opportunity Knocks back in 1988. I've seen him on two cruises, and not only is he a very funny man, he is no mean singer either. If you get the chance to see him, I recommend you take it.
  4. I was on Arcadia several times last year and I seem to recall seeing buckets on all cruises. These were mainly on deck 2 (in and outside the Rising Sun, in and near the Intermezzo and Spinnaker bars and in the midship lift/staircase area). On one cruise (I forget which one), a length of the corridor alongside the Intermezzo and Spinnaker bars was cordoned off for several hours while ceiling panels were removed and overhead work was carried out by the maintenance team. Whether or not this was related to the leak problems I don't know, but I assume it was. Passenger inconvenience was minimised, as passengers were simply diverted through the bars' seating areas. It would be interesting to have an update from anyone who has been on Arcadia since mid December.
  5. Another error on the P&O site, this one regarding Arcadia - I've been on Arcadia four times this year (last time was earlier this month), and the Black Tie dress code is not enforced in Sindhu
  6. My daughter is currently on Britannia in the Caribbean. Her cabin is being serviced twice a day. I agree with Selbourne; perhaps the trial is aimed at 2-3 night party cruises.
