Just got off Adonia today after a really good 15 day Med cruise. Good weather, great food (agreed by everyone), great decor and lovely happy smiling crew. Given that this is a cracking little cruise ship and was crammed full of Ligurian and Baltic tier P&O cruisers, i.e. long service P&O customers, who were all there because they know what they want and really enjoy this vessel, everyone on board was gutted to hear the news of the sale when it was announced and I can't help thinking that P&O has missed a trick here.
Others have said that P&O couldn't compete with Azamura and Oceania in the boutique category and this may be so but I reckon if they had given it a shot they could have developed their own premium niche, at a level below the "all suite" cruisers like Oceana, Regent and Azamura but at a level above the rest of their fleet. I believe it would have been well supported by those that seek this slightly more elevated style of travel and would be prepared to pay extra for it and this view was echoed by many of those on board since the news was announced.
Bigger isn't always better and the vast majority of our fellow passengers on board Adonia today do not want the bigger ships but do want the quality that this little cruise ship already offers in abundance and could have been adapted to offer to an even greater degree if P&O had only the vision to have seen it.
Flying in premium economy with Thomson for a caribbean cruise in December, never flown premium before and I have been told it should be the dreamliner unless the airline has to change it last minute, has anyone got any reviews of flying premium economy with Thomson?
