Built in 2001 and introduced into the P&O Cruises fleet in 2010, Adonia presents a comfortable and intimate cruising experience with an adult only guest capacity of 710 passengers.
Previously named Royal Princess, Adonia underwent renovations to join the P&O fleet in 2011 adding modern detail to traditional wood paneling whilst retaining classic features such as the grand sweeping lobby staircase, extensive library, trompe d'oeil ceiling and faux fireplace, all which contribute to the gracious and charming atmosphere of the ship. Adonia operated under Fathom Impact Travel for a short while in 2016 before moving back to P&O Cruises for 2017.
Spanning just 180m in length grants Adonia access to out of the way ports with longer, more in depth itineraries often featured in her calendar. Supporting the mature clientele onboard, Adonia also boasts an extensive enrichment lecture programs and a wide variety of shore excursions to accompany the unique itineraries and, with 75% of staterooms featuring balconies, you are sure a fantastic view as you sail into port. The more intimate size of the vessel also allows for a greater sense of camaraderie between guests and crew alike with guests often returning time and time again to their home away from home.
In all, Adonia is a sophisticated choice within the P&O Cruises’ fleet, perfect for those looking to experience the joys of traditional cruising where the interests of mature guests are catered for from entertainment and itinerary to service and décor.
