We have just returned from a fortnight cruising the Caribbean on the Adonia, the baby of the P&O fleet and a lovely little ship that looks like a ship instead of a floating apartment block. We had been on Adonia before, in 2013, and ... Read more

Having never done a cruise before, I was unsure quite what to expect. However, I have been generally very pleasantly surprised. However, I do have some constructive comments and observations. We were flown out to Bridgetown on ... Read more

We joined our first P&O cruise in Barbados. We were transferred from the plane to the port in small overcrowded buses, all crammed in with hand luggage on knees, no storage space. Checking into the cruise boat was well organised and we ... Read more

We really enjoyed our cruise around Central America on the Adonia. The sometimes elusive elements all came together to make this an enjoyable holiday. The highlights were: The Weather - not too hot or humid, occasionally windy. ... Read more

I have travelled with P&O since 1997. My first cruise with them was on the Camberra. I have also done the World Cruise visiting so many countries. I would recommend a World Cruise for once in a lifetime experience. I was a bit puzzled ... Read more

This was our 5th cruise, the others being with the princess ships which we thought were p&o but were told was a different part so were unable to get any loyalty discounts. We found boarding was fast and friendly although we did have to ... Read more

Once you have dodged all of the booking mines and read countless paragraphs of do's & don'ts and spent hours online then you might consider that the holiday coming to you would be more than enough compensation. Wrong. Problems do not ... Read more

The Adonia is a very tired ship, with lots of rust, old fashioned carpets, some poor entertainment, and silly rules! We sailed to St Mary's in the Isles if Scilly, which is not very far so we spent the whole of the first day within sight ... Read more

  We are newcomers to cruising, although not to the use of ships as means of transport. With one short cruise on QM2 earlier in the year, we thought we would try a cruise during the darker months of the year. The Adonia cruise took ... Read more

In brief – this was my second cruise on Adonia. I like small ships and the more intimate and friendly experience they provide. I had reservations about the limited amount of open deck space on these R-class ships, but this was a ... Read more

We are seasoned cruisers but had never sailed with P&O before; after experiencing the Adonia, we never will again. The problem is not that it is a small ship - we tend to choose those - and the itinerary was grand: the Great Wall of ... Read more
