The 710-passenger Adonia has returned to Southampton and re-joined the P&O Cruises fleet, following a year of operating for the now defunct start-up cruise line, fathom.
The adult-only cruise ship returns to its homeport of Southampton where it will begin operating a range of cruises to Iceland, the British Isles, Atlantic Coast, the Mediterranean and the Caribbean.
The ship has lost its fathom livery and has regained the blue funnel with the P&O Cruises logo. However the ship does not yet feature the union jack design on its bow.
The interior of the ship has received a number of changes, including the addition of the popular P&O Cruises venue, The Glass House by wine expert Olly Smith, as well as the addition of an outdoor cinema, furnishings and new shows and entertainment.
Paul Ludlow, Senior Vice President, P&O Cruises, said: “We are delighted to welcome Adonia back into the P&O Cruises fleet. Guests love our bigger ships, but Adonia has always had a special place in the hearts of many of them, who enjoy the intimate and country house hotel feel, the discovery itineraries offered and the refined gentleness of the on board experience.”
