Notable Rooms

Art Gallery

The sweeping corridor that runs along the starboard side of Arcadia on F Deck, between the midships lifts and the Rising Sun, provides the perfect setting to display the engaging array of art that can be purchased on board Arcadia.

East Bar

At the highest point of the ship is the East Bar. Watch the sun dip below the horizon as you sip cocktails in a colonial atmosphere.

The Crow's Nest

Ambient light filters through the curved glass into this relaxed lounge. Curl up with a book during the day and enjoy live jazz and cabaret after dinner in the evenings.

Rising Sun

Inspired by the traditional British Victorian-style Pub, the Rising Sun has everything from darts, karaoke, talent shows, 'pub night', dancing and sport screenings to keep you amused.

Arcadia Sports Court

Whether you enjoy the friendly competition of an organized tournament or prefer to play casually with your own party, short tennis, football, volleyball, basketball and cricket are just some of the options available in Arcadia's Sports Court.
