Does anyone know the story behind the additional staterooms (cabins) fitted on the Arcadia in the last couple of years, I read somewhere the changes took place around the aft end the consequence being a "squarer stern". She was originally destined for Cunard so was this all to do with capacity or the fact she is child free.

she has always been child free.The extra staterooms were all suites and the whole thing was lifted on during her jan 2010 drydock.i think that it gave an extra capacity of 38 passengers ,Did not like the look of her now.

Thanks Jim, 38 cabins doesn't sound a lot but if you make a quick calculation thats a massive return on an investment.
