Wonderful ship – pity about the weather

P&O Cruises | Adonia Reviews

We went on Adonia, across the Atlantic at the end of October, beginning of November. Unfortunately we had to skirt hurricane Ophelia and then storm Brian – which meant a lot of sea days in fairly bumpy conditions, with the decks closed at times, fortunately, we were midship lower deck. The Adonia is a lovely ship – the crew were all lovely, so friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. there was a wonderful craft teacher on board, which made the days go a bit quicker, unfortunately she left the ship at cape Canaveral, so we still had 3 sea days without craft lessons. There was only one lecturer on board, so no variety, and there was no art teacher – which I really missed on the 6 days plus that we had at sea. Is this one of P&O’s cutbacks? It was a pity on a really long sea voyage. It was a good job that the library on board Adonia is excellent.

Because of weather conditions, the route was changed several times and it became a bit of a mystery cruise. Understandable hurricane-torn islands didn’t want us.

While in Miami we came across tropical storm Cynthia – it became a very wet outing. The ship trip in Cape Canaveral was excellent.

At St Kitts, we were very impressed to see the car ferry from Malta, that had been converted to a school ship for children from islands that had suffered in the hurricane.
