po cruises - arcadia or aurora

I am cruising with two first timers. Dates and ports of call point to booking on the Arcadia but I have read some awful reviews. I have sailed on Oriana and Aurora and loved the experience of both ships.

Can anyone tell me how Arcadia compares to these.

I have just had the unfortunate experience of a Baltic cruise on the Arcadia. With few exceptions, the choice of food, quality and standard of cooking is very poor, even in their speciality restaurants. The service is generally indifferent and the organisation when at ports of call and finally disembarking, is abysmal.

I even had to endure them painting the cabin whilst I was resident, without even an apology or gesture of any kind. The only saving grace with P & O is they do not overcharge on drinks but book with this company at your peril!
