Artemis Braemar Arcadia M/S Artemis The Artemis in 2009
M/S Artemis vital statistics Company: P & O Cruises (until 2010) Home Port: Hamilton, Bermuda Gross Tonnage: 45,000 tons Cruising Speed: 21 knots Passenger Capacity: 1,200 Passenger Decks: 9 Built: 1984 Voyages sailed on this ship: Caribbean
At 45,000 tons the Artemis was the baby of the P & O fleet and is classed these days as a "small" ship.  Strange to think she is only slightly smaller than the mighty liner Titanic who was the largest and grandest ship ever built at the time. Since 2010 the P & O ‘baby’ of the fleet has been the Adonia.
Trevor and Debbie official portrait on the Artemis in 2009 Cabin A208 on the Artemis Artemis in Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos islands
A glimpse of the Artemis docked in palm-fringed surroundings in Grand Turk, Turks & Caicos Islands on 16 February 2009.
Cabin A208 on the Arcadia deck, deck 7.  This large, pleasant twin-bedded cabin had a sliding door leading to a small balcony which contained a couple of deck chairs and a small table. We always enjoy leaving the balcony door open overnight in tropical climates to enjoy the fresh sea air and the gorgeous sounds of the ocean.
Here we are at the captain’s cocktail party on the Artemis enjoying the gratis drinks and canapés.
