We did Southamton to Rio (including the Amazon). We found Adonia to be well appointed, with a good library and card room. Good points :- Tea/coffee facilities in room (we haven't had that on other ships) Drink prices reasonable and NO 15% service surcharge. Amount of money deducted for tips very reasonable (In fact we gave our cabin steward and waiters extra). Excellent, friendly staff. Bad points :- Internet service expensive and virtually unfit for purpose. (I spent almost 100 minutes to get one Email sent! Then had to make a bit of a nuisance of myself to get full refund). Too many formal nights (7 out of 32) No ice cream parlour anywhere on board. Seeing stage in theatre/lounge very difficult unless you're near the front. Entertainment - Guest acts average to rubbish. Ship's theatre company -average Guest speakers - Excellent to poor. On board activities - somewhat limited unless you're into quizzes and dancing.
