P&O Cruises is sending Arcadia for a major refurbishment at the Blohm+Voss shipyard in Hamburg, Germany.

Arcadia will be all shiny and new before the Christmas season starts.

Highlights during the major dry dock in Hamburg include enhancements to suites, piano bar, spinnaker bar and The Belvedere food court. Many of the public spaces and lunges will be modernized with new decor and designs. New concepts will be introduced and the ship will also get new carpets and furniture, soft furnishing refreshes, fixture and fitting upgrades and elegant new color schemes and a lot more.
