Adonia has a certain charm that is hard to describe, from the moment of embarkation you feel like you have stepped into a story. Traditional with a country house feel, she is the most characteristic ship I have ever experienced.
The level of service is outstanding, another advantage of sailing on a smaller ship as the staff are able to attend to your every need. The ratio of staff-guests is almost 2:1. You feel like part of the family as the waiters remember how you like your drink and the staff greet you by your name as you are meandering round the ship.
Adonia’s theatre has a seat for everyone to enjoy the after dinner performance. The entertainment on board is varied and there is plenty to do on board on sea days. Horizon, the ships daily newspaper will keep you up to date with everything that’s going on, this is delivered to your cabin which ensures that you don’t miss a thing! You can play cards, enjoy a film in the cinema or treat yourself to a treatment in the spa.
My favourite part of the ship was the sun deck, I loved it! The poolside bar is the perfect place to enjoy the sea breeze and there is something therapeutic about relaxing on a sun-lounger sailing through the Ocean.
The library also deserves a mention. You can’t help but feel like you have stepped back in time. The mahogany and oak shelves are full of books and the fireplace takes pride of place in the centre, you could spend hours in here reading but you will be far too busy creating your own story on P&O’s little gem.
