Shock As P&O Announce Adonia Is Returning To UK

November 29, 2016

There was shock today as P&O announced that the much loved Adonia, which left the fleet in 2015, will be making a comeback.

From June 2017 the Adonia will return to P&O and begin sailing a range of itineraries in Europe and the Caribbean.

Adonia had previously left to sail as “fathom cruises”; a line dedicated to volunteer tourism. Guests were taken to locations such as the Dominican Republic to help teach English or build water filtration systems. (You can find out all about this here!)

Carnival Corporation had hoped to introduce the concept of “social impact travel” to the cruising world but have now decided to return the ship to P&O.

The Adonia was previously an adult only vessel that was one of the smaller ships in the fleet, with only 710 passengers on-board.

Once returned to the fleet she will have upgrades including a new restaurant (Olly Smith’s “The Glass House”), an outdoor cinema on the Lido deck, refreshed furnishings and lighter fabrics in cabins.

The itineraries for Adonia will go on sale at the start of December and more news is expected in the coming months.

What do you think of the news? Have you sailed with P&O or the Adonia previously? Would you like to sail with her when she returns to the fleet? Let us know in your comments below…
