Defunct Cruise Lines
MS Arcadia is the second largest in the P&O Cruises fleet. She was built by the Fincantieri Company of Italy in a period of just twenty months.
In 2003 she was allocated to Cunard Line to become their MS Queen Victoria. Shortly before her launch the decision was made to transfer the ship to the P&O Cruises fleet. As a result, Arcadia has a Cunard-style funnel and mast similar to those found on the QE2 and the RMS Queen Mary 2.
Some of her onboard features include A three tier theatre, a fine dining restaurant, which spans two decks. And a luxurious spa, complete with thermal suite and hydrotherapy pool, 2 pools, 1 with sky dome, Ocean view gymnasium, Italian style cafe, Gary Rhodes restaurant, Poolside grill, a 30 seat cinema, and a expansive art collection, featuring no less than 3,000 works of art.
The MS Arcadia is a child free ship, so there are no facilities on board for children.
