P&O Cruises to unveil 700-passenger Adonia in 2011

Date Posted: 09 Dec 2009
Cruise lovers will in the near future be able to visit destinations that are not usually on the itinerary of large vessels thanks to P&O Cruises, which has announced a new addition to its fleet.

The company will in May 2011 launch the new ship called Adonia which, with a maximum capacity of just 710 passengers, will be the smallest of P&O Cruises' seven ships.

Just like Arcadia, the new ship will be an adult-only vessel boasting 355 well-appointed cabins, more than three-quarters of which will feature balconies.

Commenting on the vessel, which will also be equipped with a library with more than 4,000 titles, P&O Cruises' managing director Carol Marlow said it will deliver "real small ship charm".

"She will offer a truly intimate and traditional cruise experience, yet with all the comforts you would expect from a modern vessel," explained Ms Marlow.

"With this size of ship our passengers will be able to get to know their fellow cruisers and crew easily as they travel to some of the most intriguing destinations on the map."

According to World Travel Market, cruising is the fastest growing travel sector.
