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. The service was quick, polite and efficient. All the staff throughout the ship were polite, friendly and helpful and seemed happy in their work. Our balcony cabin was spacious with a two seater sofa and desk and much cupboard space. All spotlessly clean as was the rest of the ship. Outside there were generally plenty of sunbeds. A downside of smaller ships is that they do move around more on bad seas and we caught the tail-end of the hurricane, Gert, for the first night but I think all ships would have felt the effect of the hurricane.
Entertainment was very good. The films are shown in the card room (two different ones each day) and the seating is all on one level. The theatre is small, only one deck high. The theatre company is much smaller than other P and O ships, just four singer/dancers. They were very good on show nights and did an excellent Alan Aykbourn play, they were all all great actors as well as having good voices.
clean and tidy, ample room for two.
Arrival and Customs is a dream, much nicer than airports.
As you get off the ship there's a miniature train that for five euros takes you on a 35 minute tour of St. Peters Port, we then walked to the underground military museum.
