Ship Facts: Adonia Review (by Cruise Critic!)
Maiden voyage with an elderly lady-the SHIP! not the wife!
A very welcome sight is the P and O yellow funnel, and again we were welcomed aboard with all due ceremony - including fireworks, streamers and an excellent band.

Adonia is some 10 years old and her refit seemed fairly superficial in many areas. Public rooms are very good, Andersons must be the largest one we've seen and the Library is vast - although it seemed more used for dozing than reading, could well be used for other things. The Curzon room is the centre for entertainment, not bad but the dance floor became very quickly crowded especially with the two instructors being very good at arousing interest. Elsewhere the Card Room was in constant use - the Crows Nest nicely done but suffered from dreadful noise from the alley games taking place overhead, a series of talks had to take place there also (nowhere else to go!) and it was used as a cinema, not with any success.

There are Two speciality restaurants, both well presented and with good menus but occupancy rates would indicate that one would be sufficient and the released room could be utilised for other purposes - Food service good - presentation beginning to slacken, the NEW P+O menu is rather better in description than execution..

Overall a comfortable ship, rides the sea well, no feeling of overcrowding and an enjoyable voyage. Personally I think 7 to 10 days is her best for a voyage - longer and people start looking around for something different.
