P&O Cruises have confirmed that Adonia will leave the fleet next year, with contracts signed to sell the small ship to Azamara Club Cruises.
The sale of the 30,000-ton ship will complete in March 2018, with the D804 sailing leaving from Barbados on 23 February and ending in Barbados on 9 March 2018 to be her last for P&O Cruises.
Azamara Club Cruises will receive delivery of Adonia the same month, renaming the ship ‘Azamara Pursuit’. The 704-passenger ship will undergo extensive refurbishment to bring its décor in line with Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest.
Speaking about the sale of Adonia,
P&O Cruises senior vice president Paul Ludlow said: “During her time with us, Adonia has captured the hearts of many thousands of P&O Cruises guests.
“She has ventured into new ports of call around the globe and has negotiated Icelandic Fjords, European rivers and Caribbean coves. We will ensure that these discovery itineraries are continued on other ships in the fleet.
“With almost six months until Adonia leaves the fleet, we will ensure that each of the cruises in her final season with us are extra special and celebratory.”
