Welcome back, Adonia
In 2016, Adonia – the smallest of the P&O Cruises ships – was reassigned to a new venture with cruise line Fathom. From June 2017, P&O Cruises is thrilled to welcome Adonia back to its fleet.
The smallest of our eight ships, Adonia offers a delightfully intimate, adult-only cruising experience. As she carries just 710 guests, Adonia is a very sociable ship, where strangers become familiar faces, then warm friends, in no time.
Small is beautiful
Her wood panelling, grand staircase and traditional feel mean her atmosphere and décor are in keeping with the traditions of cruising. Awash with charming traditional style, we’ve recently refreshed and updated her soft furnishings, and added lighter fabrics for a brighter look. And, being a 21st century ship, she has beautifully crafted, modern facilities as well.
Life on board Adonia
Your days – and nights – on Adonia can be as relaxed or eventful as you want. From pub quizzes to sports tournaments, dance lessons to informative talks and interactive demonstrations, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Or, when you just want to relax with a good book and do nothing at all, there are plenty of comfortable sun loungers outside and easy chairs inside to tuck yourself up in.
There’s never a dull moment on board Adonia, when it comes to entertainment and things to do we’ve something for everyone.
In keeping with the timeless quality of Adonia, The Curzon Lounge harks back to an age where dances were the norm. Boasting a beautiful parquet dance floor and room for a live band, The Curzon Lounge is the perfect dance setting. In the evening, the space is transformed into a buzzing classic entertainment lounge, with dazzling performances guaranteed to wow you.
The Card Room
Adonia’s impressive card room wouldn’t be out of place in an exclusive member’s club. Dark wood furniture and baize covered tables create the perfect card playing atmosphere. During the day large windows let in lots of natural light, and in the evening heavy curtains create an intimate atmosphere perfect for the high drama of the cards.
New to Adonia is an intimate outdoor cinema on the Lido deck. Perfect for snuggling up with movie snacks and catching the latest release or losing yourself in an old classic.
Adonia’s library is the perfect place to escape with a good book.Featuring a full size fireplace, stunning painted ceiling and an abundance of comfortable chairs, the extensive collection of books held here covers everything from the latest fiction through to travel books and atlases to allow you to plan your days ashore.

Friendly instructors are on hand to show you how to use any pieces of equipment and suggest a programme suited to you.

The Ocean Grill serves up dining that’s as stunning as the views.
