Adonia undergoes repairs

P&O Cruises’ 680-passenger Adonia (2001/30,277gt) underwent emergency repairs at the A&P Falmouth shipyard in early January, prior to setting sail on an 87-day Round South America Cruise from Southampton on 13 January. The unscheduled drydocking, which P&O would only describe as being due to ‘essential maintenance’, resulted in the cancellation of a ten-day cruise from Naples to Southampton. Adonia was built as R8, the last of a series ordered by Renaissance Cruises. She then sailed as Minerva II for Swan Hellenic and Royal Princess for Princess Cruises before joining P&O as Adonia in May 2011, a replacement for Artemis, which had just left the fleet on her acquisition by Phoenix Seereisen.• In other P&O News, Oriana (1995/69,153gt) spent a month at the Blohm + Voss Shipyard in Hamburg before Christmas undergoing a refit, which included the removal of all children’s facilities, as she will now be marketed only for adults. The work also saw the addition of 27 new cabins.
