With everything from darts, karaoke, talent shows, 'pub night', dancing and sport screenings to keep you amused, you'll find this is a great place to come for a lively evening with friends.

East Bar

With stunning views out to the ocean beyond, the colonial style East Bar is the perfect place to relax. As the sun sets and warm ambient light pours into the room, you can enjoy a pre-dinner drink.

The Viceroy Room

The Viceroy Room has a timeless gentleman's club feel. This restful space is designed for peace, reflection, and quiet conversation. Chat with fellow passengers about the topical issues of the day, or simply relax and unwind as you watch the world float by.

Neptune Bar

Decorative ceramic pebbles cover the bar surround, giving you the feel of a pebble beach come rain or shine. But, as the entire area is protected by the sliding glass Skydome, including the Neptune Pool and Neptune Grill, you won't have to worry about it raining on your fun.

Aquarius Bar

This full-service, outdoor bar is bamboo clad and lends a tropical feel to the Aquarius Pool area. Enjoy a brief respite from the sun on one of its stools or stay on your deck lounger and have a refreshing cocktail - or two.

HealthFitness

From the revitalising hydrotherapy pool, to the state of the art gymnasium, there's plenty of facilities onboard to refresh your mind, body and soul. Passengers can enjoy luxury massages and treatments in the Oasis Spa, or head out to the top deck sports court for a spot of tennis.

Oasis Spa

With superb ocean views and relaxing cream décor, the tranquil Oasis Spa is the perfect place to relax and be pampered. In the treatment rooms you can enjoy private ocean views as you succumb to a relaxing massage.

Also linked to the Oasis Spa is the hydrotherapy pool, which offers a hydromassage; a type of treatment that increases circulation, eases tension and aids restful sleep. Flooded with light via a pyramid skylight, the hydropool lies in the centre of several tiled columns. Alternatively passengers can head for Arcadia's thermal suite on the starboard side where they'll find three steam rooms, a sauna and a heated swimming pool.

The Retreat

The Retreat, is a room designed to be 'zen' - the ultimate space for relaxation. This light and airy room, with comfy cream sofas and easy chairs, floor-to-ceiling windows and a large expanse of wooden floor, provides an atmosphere perfect for activities such as Tai Chi, meditation and yoga.

Sports Court

Whether you enjoy the friendly competition of an organised 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 the Sports Court. And just aft of the Sports Court you will find the golf nets, where you can perfect your swing, using your own clubs or those provided.

Gymnasium

Passengers can watch the waves as they work out with all the latest equipment, including exercise bikes, rowing machines, running machines, steppers, resistance machines and a range of weights. After the workout, visitors can head to the Oasis Spa for a relaxing massage, a stimulating therapeutic treatment or a warming and cleansing sauna.

Salon

The fully equipped salon is the perfect place for those who want to look their best. Located in the spa, passengers can try a new colour or style in the hands of fully trained stylists.

Swimming Pools

Neptune Pool- Covered by a skydome, you can always take to the water no matter what the weather. Located on Lido Deck, between the forward and central lifts is the sparkling Neptune Pool, Arcadia's largest. The sliding glass roof can be retracted in good weather, or left closed in cooler climes - so you can enjoy a relaxing swim as soon as you leave Southampton! The skydome covers the entire pool area, including the Neptune Bar and Neptune Grill.

Aquarius Pool- Located at the stern of Arcadia, this pool is the perfect place to relax during the day. As the sun sets, there’s no better place to take in the beautiful ocean and unparalleled views afforded by this peaceful spot.

Dress Code

The ship operates three styles of dress code: Smart, Evening Casual and Black Tie.

On Smart evenings ladies typically wear tailored trousers and separates or even a stylish dress, while men are in a shirt and trousers with a jacket, such as a blazer or sports jacket, or a suit and tie if they wish. For a typical two week cruise there are normally four Smart evenings.

Stylish resort or leisurewear is ideal for Evening Casual nights, for example casual separates or dresses for ladies and open-neck polo shirts and casual trousers (not shorts) for men. A jacket and smart trousers can be worn but are not compulsory. Smart dark denim is also fine, but not trainers, football shirts or tracksuits. For a typical two week cruise on Azura, Britannia, Oceana or Ventura there are normally ten Evening Casual nights. On Adonia, Arcadia, Aurora and Oriana there are normally six Evening Casual nights.

Black Tie nights (also known as Gala Evenings)add a touch of glamour and a real sense of occasion to evenings at sea. Ladies wear glamorous evening wear including cocktail dresses, ball gowns or even smart trouser suits. For men, dinner jackets or tuxedos are the norm, but a dark lounge or business suit and tie can be worn as an alternative. For a typical two week cruise there are normally four Black Tie evenings on board.

During the day casual shirts, shorts, trousers and beachwear are ideal.
