New carpet for all cabins and suites plus new curtains, cushions and headboards for suites. There are also new lampshades and stools for other cabins. Take a look at ours...
This is a typical world route for the Arcadia that only misses out the winter! We mean ALL THE WINTER !  A tour of all the passenger areas of the cruise ship Arcadia is on this site.
