Sail Date: Oct 2015
Cabin:

This was our third cruise on the ADONIA. We used the intercruise coach service from Wetherby to Southampton.On arrival in Southampton we were checked in and in our cabin within 15 minutes. On boarding the ship it looked just as clean and beautiful as on previous cruises on this small ship. We were on 2nd sitting for dinner and found the service and food excellent.

The ship is so easy to find your way round and the crew are exceptionally pleasant and friendly at all times especially the team on the reception desk. This cruise was in association with Classic F M with the music programme hosted by Nick Bailey from the radio programme.The performers were all fantastic musicians and singers..Although I am not a dedicated classical music fan I thoroughly enjoyed all of the performances.The pianist John Wilson who accompanied most of the performers was excellant. Apart from the classical concertos there were a number of other entertainers who were very good. Pianist Chris Hamilton, singer Louis Hoover ,singers ll'Destino all performed good shows.

Adonia is the perfect ship for this specialised type of cruise and I think everyone onboard enjoyed the cruise as the atmosphere on board was so pleasant and friendly.Adonia is not a big ship but it has a lovely feeling on board. It is also a good sailing ship as we encountered force 9 Gail's off the coast of Portugal and also near Italy.

Cabin Review

Cabin Outside

Good sized cabin, small but adequate shower.Kettle supplied for making tea and coffee.

Port Reviews

Tangier

Did not leave the ship as it was raining and we have been before

Sorrento

Beautiful federal port views from the cliffs are excellant

Rome (Civitavecchia)

We have been to Rome several times before using the train service but having read reports that the drop off point was now a longer walk from the station we decided to stay in the port. Not very impressed with Civitavecchia, not much to do. We did walk from the new port entrance to the station, it is now a good 40 minute walk and a extremely busy place due to the number of ship using the port. If we want to visit Rome again we will use the ships excursion (Rome on your own), more expensive but worth it.

Portofino

Unable to visit due to weather conditions,this is the third attempt at visiting Portofino without success. Instead we sailed to Genoa and took a very enjoyable excursion to Santa Margarita and Rapallo,both beautiful places

Lisbon

Love Lisbon.Beautiful city, something for everyone

La Coruna

Liked this port, good place to stock up on wine and a good shopping centre.

Southampton

Joined the ship here ,easy quick embarkation
