Azamara Club Cruises has officially taken ownership of its third ship, the former P&O Cruises’ ship Adonia, soon to be known as Azamara Pursuit.
Adonia arrived at the dry-dock at the Grand Bahama Shipyard in Freeport, Bahama on 14 March 2018, where Carnival Corporation, the owners and partner company of P&O Cruises, finalised paperwork and officially transferred the vessel to Azamara Club Cruises.
Azamara Club Cruises’ Captain Carl Smith has taken command of Azamara Purusit, from Captain Trevor Lane at P&O Cruises.
Azamara Pursuit will undergo a classification survey and general inspection whilst in dry-dock before crossing the Atlantic to Belfast in Northern Ireland where the ship will spend four months for refurbishment work to take place.
The official naming of Azamara Pursuit will take place in Southampton on 28 August 2018. It will be the first time that Azamara Club Cruises has officially named a new ship. The currently two ships in the fleet, Azamara Quest and Azamara Journey both immediately entered service in 2007.
