Default Adonia 4 Jan 2012

Adonia doesn't seem to have gone to Rome today - it appears to be heading towards Palma, where it's not supposed to be until Friday! Anyone know what's happening?

Default Adonia

Tom, the Adonia is on its way to Falmouth for repairs, should arrive there on Friday. It will depart Southampton on the 13th. No-one has actually said what repairs are needed but someone reported it has an oil leak.

Ah yes; I'd forgotten. Presumably the 'current cruise' (D201) the one that's been cancelled. I've been looking at the itinerary information on the P&O site, and that's still got all the D201 information!

They're being very slow about updating their website: not only is this information still up there, but they haven't revised the ship description ("Family friendly...") or deck plans for Oriana following her refit.

Just off Adonia yesterday.
Passengers going on the Xmas cruise and continuing on the 10 day cruise were informed a few days before they left.
Lucky them is all I can say!!! I bet most of them wre glad to not have another boring 10 days. Not a good cruise and the worst complainers ever were onboard!
Not the itinerary we were supposed to have - most of that for the better. Entertainment was just abominable - I cant believe P&O could do so badly on a Xmas cruise.
Will do a report when I get sorted out.

They have always been slow with updating the website. The virtual tour for Ventura still shows the trapeze, which was removed 2 years ago, and the trampolines which have recently been removed.
The info for Oriana will probably get updated some time in 2013, and the new ship will probably be on there a year or so after launch.

Any more information as to when it arrives in Falmouth? Looking at the webcam, it is still at sea. And I can't find its whereabouts on the AIS live website.

I red somewhere that she's due into Falmouth at noon tomorrow. As regards AIS, I think she's currently somewhere in the Bay, and therefore out of AIS reception range. I expect she'll pop back into (AIS) view sometime this evening as she nears Ushant.

Ah, yes I remember now, don't know what's worse, fly home from Naples or bus home from Falmouth!

I hope you were well looked after.

Default Adonia

She arrived early morning Sunday in Falmouth. If you are interested you can just about see her on the Falmouth docks web cam. Just type Falmouth Webcams in the search bar.

We disembarked Adonia in Venice on the 6 December.

What I cannot understand is if the Italians are so good at building new cruise ships why they were unable to repair Adonia during the three days it was berthed in Venice i.e. 5th - 7th December ?

she had to be out of the water for the repair to take place.. Falmouth was the only thing the office could book in 2 weeks notice..

Default Adonia

We boarded the Adonia on the 6th Dec when several engineers appeared to be working on her stern area below the water line. One gentleman tried personally to increase the water level in the basin.
