‘ Adonia is very elegant, just like a country house, very peaceful, no crowds’
‘It gets into places others cannot go’
‘Although she is the smallest, we think she has the biggest heart’
‘There is a very homely and restful feel to the whole ship and it makes you feel part of a family’
From transiting the Kiel Canal and the Amazon, to travelling lesser known itineraries to smaller ports other ships can’t reach, Adonia has built up quite a reputation along the way. The last of eight ships originally built for Renaissance Cruises, Adonia had enjoyed spells as Minerva II and Royal Princess before she eventually joined the P&O Cruises fleet in 2011, christened by the ultimate diva, Shirley Bassey.
As the smallest P&O Cruises ship sets sail into the Miami sunset, destined for a new life of ‘voluntourism’ in Miami, we prepare to say adios to Adonia with her final farewell cruises. Whether you’ve sailed on this charming ship before or are desperate to see what all the fuss is about before it’s too late, these are the itineraries to best experience everything she has to offer.
