Carnival have released more details about what people will be doing, or what will be available for people to do, on Adonia’s day calls to the Dominican Republic and Cuba once she starts cruising for fathom. Interestingly, it looks as if they will be different from each other. In order to comply with US regulations […]

Carnival Corporation has this afternoon announced that it has received approval from relevant US Government departments to add Cuba to its cruise destinations. The first cruises to visit Cuba will be on Adonia, as part of its 2016 program under the new brand ‘fathom’, to which the ship will be transferred in spring 2016. The […]

Farewell Adonia?

Regular readers may recall that when the 2016 brochure was published this spring, there was no mention of any itineraries for Adonia. At that time P&O said there were developing ‘an exciting new set of itineraries’ which hadn’t been finalised when the brochure was published. However, they did say that Adonia would spend summer 2016 […]

I’ve had a bit more opportunity to look through P&O’s just-announced programme for summer 2015. What seems clear to me is that there’s a bit of a divide opening up – prices on Britannia, Ventura and Azura seem to be noticeably lower than prices on the rest of the fleet. Oriana and Aurora definitely seem […]

P&O have announced that none of their ships will make any previously-announced calls at Argentine ports in 2013. Both Arcadia and Adonia were due to call at Argentine ports – Buenos Aires, Puerto Madryn and Ushuaia – during their soon-to-start Grand Voyages. The reason for the cancellations is that there have been demonstrations in these […]

Adonia repairs – finished?

I’ve been keeping my eye on the expected times of Adonia’s arrival into Southampton. During the week the expected time of arrival was sometime Thursday night/Friday morning, but I see that this afternoon (Wednesday 11 Jan) that has been updated. Adonia is now expected back in Southampton at 7am tomorrow – that’s the best part […]

Adonia Repairs

There’s a good picture of Adonia on this FalmouthPhotos website. Still no information on what the ‘repairs’ are, though.

Follow-ups on a couple of points:- Pam Massey took more photos of Oriana when she was in Southampton the other day to start her world cruise, and the weather was obviously more suitable for photography. There’s a sample below. You can find Pam’s gallery, containing pictures of a number of other ships as well as […]

Adonia has arrived

The new Adonia arrived in Southampton on Friday morning. (I blogged about her transfer to P&O in this post when it was announced in December 2009.) She was, apparently late arriving (due to bad weather across the Atlantic) but in the event she was berthed by just after 8:30. Approaching Southampton from the west, she came […]
