Adonia no good to me at all in my scooter. Apart from the fact there is no casino.

It's on the list of cruises we have done. However this was the last Adonia. Sister to Oceana. Went back to Princess as Sea Princess after 2/3 years.

Any ship like Oceana will interest us.

I have 2 or 3 in mind, but will wait until on board Azura this Saturday, to take advantage of the low deposit, and extra OBC. These will then revert to my TA for the extra discount��. I like to book early, but who knows what's around the corner and the £50 deposit is less than my insurance excess, so makes sense for me. Not to mention the extra few ££££s in my account for the next 18-24 months.��

And sister ship Sun Princess and another sister, P&O Australia's 'Pacific Explorer' - ex Dawn Princess. All 'Sun Class vessels of 77,000 tonnes with 2000 pax. Been on all of them. But you will have to fly 'down under to get on them !!' A mere 23 hours in the air !!

Bear in mind the Sun Class ships are 20-25 years old and often experience various issues.

Have people received a new full size P&O brochure for cruises up to October 2019? I received a thin summary version from P&O last week, but someone was quoting from the 'new brochure' on the thread regarding the policy on taking alcohol on board. The P&O website only shows the old version with cruises up to Spring 2019. Thanks.

Well done Dai.

I'm on Ventura on Friday so am looking to book my 2018 (last min decision) & my 2019 cruise whilst on board.

I will just have to hope that no one has snapped up the cabin I'm looking at

Selbourne, I've downloaded the PDF version of the 2018-2019 brochure. Did a search on alcohol and this was all I could find. This is the statement on alcohol policy: It's a cut and paste, but I've tried to tidy it up a bit.

Our policy for the responsible serving of alcohol
applies at all times. We reserve the right to deny
access to the ship to anyone who appears to be
heavily under the influence of alcohol. We may
also confiscate alcohol in the terminal and at the
gangway, and it may be destroyed. On board, bar
staff may refuse service if a guest appears to be
inebriated. Any offensive or unruly behaviour may
result in individuals or the whole group being asked
to leave the venue. Dangerous or violent behaviour
will not be tolerated and will likely result in the
termination of the involved guests’ holidays and their
disembarkation from the ship.


Anyone under the age of 18 (under 21 when in
United States of America waters) will not be served
alcoholic beverages on board and must not be in
possession of alcohol. Guests may be asked to verify
their age. It is prohibited to attempt to purchase
alcohol for those under 18 in the bars and shops
on board. 16 and 17 year olds may be bought beer,
cider or wine to drink with a meal in the restaurants
when accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.


Alcoholic beverages consumed in the public areas
on board will be subject to a corkage charge and
enjoyment of alcohol in a public area will always
be subject to appropriate standards of behaviour
being met. For further information on our alcohol
guidelines and corkage charges please refer to the
Advice Centre on our website

Just had our Aurora April 2019 Med cruise confirmed, our TA said she managed to secure the last available accessible balcony for us.
First time on Aurora for us, I do hope she lives up to some of the hype on here and that we don't miss the extent of bars and entertainment venues we are used to on her big sisters.
