Adonia Christmas Cruise

Review for Adonia to Caribbean - Southern

This was to be our first Christmas Cruise, and, our last onboard our beloved Adonia, We were married aboard her three years ago by Captain Sahra Breton. We decided to pay the extra money and upgrade to Virgin Upper Class - VS9940. On arrival at the Virgin Upper Class desk, we were informed that we had to be taken downstairs to find the P & O Representative to complete a health questionaire. ...

Embarkation slow. Small ship in reasonable condition. Decor ok if a little beige. Ships entertainment group were quite good as were some of the guest singers. The comedian was non comedic and I can't find adequate, printable words to describe the awful pantomime. Food quality started off badly and improved sufficiently after some complaints. No complaints about the crew, all were ...

Chose this cruise as we wanted an adult cruise over Christmas. I must congratulate P and O on taking penny pinching to a new level. The food was hardly ever hot, just luke warm, EVERY night we had to ask for extra vegetables, they tried to get away with 3 sprouts for Christmas Dinner. One night my wife ordered New England Clam Chowder, only to find that the "clams" were actually chicken (we are ...

Ship to be sold, downcast cruise

Have been on this ship twice before for Christmas cruise. Previous experiences much better than this one. The entertainment was awful, the food not much better and the ship had a downcast air about it, as it is reported that the Adonia will be sold in March. There was far too much emphasis placed upon classical music. Even the gust cellist, singer and pianist rendered classical rather than ...

Last minute availability and itinerary made a no brainer to escape the winter weather. Our only complaint was the circuitous route around the islands, many people like us felt the opportunity could have been taken to stay overnight say in Martinique. The standard of service from our cabin steward and the dining room waiters was of the highest order. The food was generally superb in the Pacific ...

Loved the layout and decor of Adonia. The service in restaurants was excellent, cabin steward was also very good. Food was ok, not great, I got the impression that they were trying to use up overstocks from the freezers. Visited the grill as usual and ordered the grilled lobster, when it came it was the much smaller lobster thermador usually dished up in main diningroom on formal nights. Menu's ...

Pity it has been sold

We chose this ship because it is small and adult only. We sailed on her 2 months earlier as well, and were disappointed to hear that P & O had sold Adonia and that all cruises have been cancelled from the beginning of March next year. This time the embarkation was the same as last time, with the valet parking and straight to the desk with no waiting and then on board and straight up to ...

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary, four places we had not visited and were not disappointed. This is an Adults only ship. Adonia is small but beautifully furnished. It really is like a country house at sea with it's wood panelling and stained glass, leather armchairs etc. All was immaculate. This is a cruise we found hard to fault. The food was superb in the buffet and dining room. ...

We have been on several P&O cruises in the past and have always enjoyed the quality of service provided by P&O. Never having been on a smaller size trip and decided that a short cruise which included Honfleur as a destination then this on would "fit the bill". From the moment we got to the cruise terminal in Southampton everything was perfect except for the weather! The skies opened and for the ...

Having been returned by P&O to their 'main fleet during the past month or two, 'Adonia' has been nicely freshened by what appears to have been a very recent refit. This was our first time on this appealingly-small ship which is able to visit some of the more 'off the beaten track' destinations. Our cruise took us to Bordeaux, Bilbao and St Peter Port (Guernsey). No problems with the first two ...
