Arvia, Caribbean

5

This is the fourth cruise I have been on (not all P&O) and the most enjoyable. Arvia is enormous and I must admit I did have my concerns regarding this beforehand, so many people, would we be queuing for food, entertainment, getting on and off the ship. My fears were unfounded, the app they now have works very well and it great to keep an eye on your on board spending, book any shore experiences you may like and of course book your mea!s and entertainment. The choices for food and entertainment are excellent. I must admit that I booked several excursions and restaurants (those which you pay an additional charge for) before the cruise, which I am glad I did. The excursions vary in value and interest. One of ours was cancelled the night before which was disappointing but the weather is out of everyone's control. Getting on and off the ship was very straight forward and very well organised. Getting around the ship is fun, we must have walked miles walking the corridors lost. The staff on Arvia are phenomenal, professional, helpful and always happy to engage with you, it really makes you feel special. The entertainment varied but we were, well..entertained, the Limelight Club with Mary Mac was a highlight. The Headliners team are great they must work so hard. The clubhouse is fun and the George Michael tribute was good.
We treated ourselves to a balcony which we used often. Would choose an alternative next time as we were close to the whirlpools on deck 8 promenade and it did become noisy. Gala evenings was when we realised how many people were on board but there are quiet places to go should you wish. My partner has not been on a cruise but both of us had a ball, he is converted. Would certainly book again on Arvia.

Covid testing excellent, very well organised. Embarking, an absolute fiasco, queing for well over an hour and by the time we were actually on the ship, over two hours. Our acknowledged booking to eat ...

Iona maiden voyage 7th August, one week no ports touring the UK. The weather was not good, not P&O fault but did detract as a UK based holiday. We had a new conservatory mini suite that was absolutely...
