Ship Facts: Adonia Review (by Cruise Critic!)
Pretty good for the oldies
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 sorry for those closer to their 20s. Having said that it didn't feel like an old people's home, for most if not all were active and intent on enjoyment.........though the bars had low attendance after 10.30. Liked the bars though too many have walkways through them. The Crows Nest was good but dominated by the football enthusiasts some evenings.

The cabin (stateroom) was comfortable and clean, though the bathroom was quite the smallest I have ever encountered - too small. Efficient shower, but its curtain would stick to the shower user when damp. The toilet seat was angled to prevent a natural sitting position. I am a little portly but wondered how the larger folk could survive.

The positive: great service from a delightful crew. It's great to see them smile as they work so hard to please. As usual on a cruise the food was superb - just the occasional dish which did not match expectations.

Ports of call were great and the Captain made a very late change to visit Toulon when the wind prevented a tender service at Sanary Sur Mer - highly efficient response to the situation.

Am not too concerned about entertainment for most of it is enthusiastic and loud, but clearly it was much appreciated by many. I thoroughly enjoyed a series of talks on Shakespeare and others clearly enjoyed talks given by former T.V. Personalities.

Liked the size of the ship and the facilities, but doubt whether I will choose it again
