P&O Cruises prepares to add a new ship P&O Adonia to their fleet
P&O Cruises has announced that they will add a new cruise ship to their fleet. The ship will be small and is intended to replace the Artemis which is scheduled to leave P&O Cruises in 2011.
At the present time, the cruise ship is being operated by Princess Cruises under the name Royal Princess. There are accommodations on board the ship for approximately 710 passengers. There are a total of 355 staterooms of which most include a balcony.
P&O Cruises will rename the ship Adonia, which will join the fleet in June of 2011. It is expected that Adonia will feature an adult-only environment. Itineraries for the cruise ship will include smaller ports that larger cruise ships cant access.
Passengers sailing aboard the Adonia will be able to take advantage of a sizable library that includes around 4,000 books. There will be a grand lounge that features a stage for entertainment. A dance floor will also be included in the lounge. In keeping with the P & O tradition, Adonia will feature a nautical theme.
Carol Marlow, the managing director of P&O Cruises said The addition of Adonia will deliver an elegant and welcoming ship with real small ship charm. Whilst larger ships have their own appeal, with the spectrum of bars, dining and entertainment choices they can offer, others really enjoy a smaller ship, with its more intimate ambience.
