Adonia is adults only but I was suprised that most of the adults on the cruise were far older than me. I don't regard my self as a 'spring chicken' but at 59 I was clearly one of the younger passengers. A lot of the activities were aimed ... Read more

A delightful cruise to the western Med on a compact but pleasurable vessel. Adult only, it appeals to the more mature. I was told the average age of those on the cruise was 72. Met a relatively sprightly 92 year old, but felt a little ... Read more

Overall we had a fantastic time cruising the fjords of Norway however this was largely due to exceptionally fair weather and visiting some of the most beautiful locations we could have wished for. First cruise ever, and I was not won over ... Read more

We booked this cruise last minute and got it cheap but if we,d paid full price I would really be annoyed. The ship has clearly been refurbished so the interior was lovely, similar to Azamara Quest. The cabins are as per usual for a balcony ... Read more
