The Arcadia is a child-free ship, with a display of over three-thousand pieces of artwork originating in Britain. There are several dining options onboard including an Italian cafe, a poolside grill and a two-deck fine dining restaurant. Those wanting to maintain their fitness routine while cruising will love the Arcadia's ocean view gymnasium, and everyone can enjoy the onboard spa with a hydrotherapy pool and a thermal suite.
