P&O Cruises have seven ships in their fleet. The Adonia cruise ship is the smallest and offers a more comfortable and relaxed way to enjoy a cruise. The P&O Adonia was built in 2001 and sailed with other cruise lines under different names until 2011. You will find traditional British activities like ballroom dancing, afternoon tea, and interesting speakers. Another aspect that makes the Adonia perfect for an intimate experience is the fact the cruises are for adults-only.
The interior design of the ship holds to the traditional ambience of a cruise ship. This includes panelled walls, the customary artwork, and a grand curving staircase that opens to the lobby. The ship’s stylish library boasts a faux fireplace and a ceiling painted to blend with the scenery on deck. Just off the library are two choices for dining with views that look out over the wake of the ship.
The Crow’s Nest and The Anderson Bars are brimming with British ambience and the entertainment onboard also includes the grand lounge with a large dance floor. For those who enjoy a game of cards, the ship offers a card room from which you can still enjoy the views of the ocean. The restaurant choices include the Ocean Grill, Sorrento, and the Pacific Ocean Dining Room where you can enjoy a formal six-course meal.
The Adonia cruise ship accommodates 710 guests and has six different styles of cabin among its 355. Seventy-five percent of these staterooms have balconies with magnificent views of the sea and only 24 are on the inside. P&O did not change the decor of the cabins from before and still have a colour theme of blue and white accented by dark wood. What has been added is a tea facilities complete with cookies and mugs for your tea. Click to see the Adonia Itineraries
Another advantage that the P&O Adonia has over larger cruise ships is its ability to sail into some of the smaller ports that the large ships cannot. She is devoted to longer itineraries that cover more ports not so commonly visited by most lines. They also have available a multitude of shore excursions not typical of other smaller ships.
The intimacy of a small ship gives passengers a chance to get to know each other and to get to know their crew. The crew and waiters remember names of the passengers and they can be sure to enjoy a conversation with the bartenders. The Adonia is big enough to supply plenty of things to do while it is small enough to be as comfortable as home.
