I worked on Arcadia when she became a full time cruise ship, but she was still a liner in looks and accommodation, but more importantly designed as a liner, she was a good sea ship. I was on board during a hurricane and the cyclone that destroyed Darwin, but the old girl steamed through like the grand old lady she was. Modern cruise ships five times her size would not cope so well. Sadly, my Arcadia or those of her era will never be built again.
