Main dining options on Arcadia

All of the dining options and menus below are included in the price of your holiday

Meridian restaurant xx


Featuring a two-tiered layout and refined décor, every night will be an occasion in the Meridian Restaurant. Enjoy the special ambience and sociable atmosphere of a main dining room, with a five-course menu (six-course on Gala Nights). 

By choosing Club Dining you’re opting for the cruising tradition of set sitting times. The same table will be reserved for you and your table companions every night for first or second sitting, at 6.30pm or 8.30pm. You’ll dine at the same time and table each night and enjoy the same company. It’s the way many a friendship has been made on board. You can request your preferred sitting when you book a Select Price and we’ll inform you of your table number and sitting with a card in your cabin when we welcome you on board. 


Freedom Dining allows you the flexibility to turn up at selected restaurants anytime you choose between 6pm and 9.30pm, with whom you like, and every effort will be made to accommodate you. Freedom Dining is included in your fare when you book a Select Price. Just opt for it when making your Select Price booking.

Casual dining options on Arcadia


The Belvedere

At P&O Cruises we believe great holidays should be all about choice and freedom. 

No matter what time of day it is, if you fancy a good meal you'll always get one on board Arcadia. The Belvedere food court offers informal dining around the clock. With a wide choice of menus from Oriental and Italian to bistro-style dishes and a delicatessen counter, this stylish and modern venue is the place to go for casual dining any time of the day or night. So if you've just returned to the ship after a shore excursion and have worked up a late afternoon appetite you can still enjoy a great meal.


Dine around the clock - Late night snacks are available from buffet restaurants from 10pm until late. The menu for these late night buffet options changes each day however, examples may include: self-service sandwich bar, ready-made paninis, homemade cakes, biscuits and pastries.


This dining option is included in the price of your holiday.


Select dining options

Please note there is a modest cover charge for each of our Select dining restaurants

Sindhu xx


Sindhu showcases the cuisine of twice Michelin-starred Atul Kochhar in spectacular style. 

Inspired by his Indian heritage and his pioneering menu at his Michelin-starred restaurant Benares in London, Atul celebrates authentic Indian favourites and gives them a British twist. Forget overwhelming spices, Atul's creations, such as pan-roasted beef tenderloin, spiced mash, garlic spinach purée and masala sauce, champion locally sourced seasonal ingredients and delicate fusions of flavour. Every dish at Sindhu is prepared and presented by expert chefs, many of whom have been trained by Atul on board. The beauty of the food is complemented by Sindhu’s sumptuous interior décor for an experience that delights your senses at every turn.
