P&O Arvia

Emma’s Mediterranean Cruise on P&O Arvia

Having got married in March, we decided to take a Mediterranean Cruise on board P&O’s Arvia as our honeymoon, later in the year.

Cruise Ports

The ports we visited included La Coruna, Barcelona, Alicante, Marseille and Cadiz.

I loved all of the ports –  Marseille for the authentic French windy streets.


The hustle and bustle of busy Barcelona and its colourful markets.


Cadiz really surprised me and was one of my favourite places. An old city full of architecture. We spent the day just walking through the narrow streets, taking in the sites and drinking coffee in the pavement cafes.

P&O Cruise Ship – Arvia

Arvia was a huge ship.

During the day, when not in port, we relaxed by the pool. There are hot tubs all over the decks so you could relax and watch the dolphins swim by close to the ship.

There is plenty happening on board, with enough to keep you occupied all day and night, if you wanted it.  From the Aqua zone, Splash Valley, the on-deck Sports Arena and mini golf to the spa, nightclub, and much more.

The food is amazing and there is lots of choice. From the 6th Street Diner, where you can get breakfast, lunch and dinner, through to Sindhu, where the menu is inspired by India’s diverse regional

The evening shows were amazing, something different every night from West End style shows, comedy acts, singers, and acrobats!

All in all, I would highly recommend a Mediterranean Cruise and in particular, P&O.
