Arcadia in Sydney

Editorial Team


At P&O Cruises, the safety of our guests is paramount which is why, after extensive consultation with global security experts and government officials, we’ve made the decision to reroute Arcadia’s itinerary to bypass the Red Sea.

Setting sail from Southampton on January 6th 2023, Arcadia embarked on a 99-night Western Circumnavigation trip around the globe, with highlights including Honolulu, Auckland, Sydney, Hong Kong, Singapore and a transit of the mighty Panama Canal. And one thing’s for sure: our guests will make lifelong memories in far-flung places and only have to unpack once. 

Along the way, they’ll enjoy the very best our mid-sized explorer ship has to offer. With show-stopping theatre performances, immersive live music, stand-up comedy, a high-tech gym overlooking the ocean, an opulent spa, swimming pools and over nine places to socialize… they’ll be spoilt for choice day and night. If that wasn’t enough there are a range of epic-dining venues and events on board, including dinner in Marco Pierre White’s Ocean Grill – an Arcadia exclusive. And as we work with local experts to bring authentic experiences that take our guests off the beaten track, they can enjoy the very best each location has to offer.


Each month, we’ll report back on the exciting places Arcadia has visited on her World Cruise. Find out what it’s like to visit some of the planet’s unmissable destinations and discover incredible ones you didn’t know existed. Learn what it’s like for our guests as they tick off their travel wish list and enjoy once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Join us as we take you around the world with Arcadia…
