Indeed. Just because P&O haven't, AS YET, got cruises up for one ship, loads of people seem to think that means that she will be got rid of. It's absolutely ridiculous and a totally over the top reaction.

Yes if people made comments when something happened and not when people pass on rumours or in this case put 2 and 2 together and get 7.

So we have had sky news going, Oriana going, no booze to be brought on board and now Adonia going. Anyone think of any more.

What about sheets being changed less frequently and unacceptable cost cutting in changing to PG teabags (currently the marker leader in terms of sales)

I trust that you remember the last time they did this. They cancelled the TA repositioning cruise thus disappointing a whole load of passengers. Every thing was very secret until the last minute announcements. I think you are right that there is no hard evidence but there is plenty of speculative evidence that could indicate that they are going to do the same thing again. We are booked on for the end of September and so we shall be watching with interest to see, if it does happen, what compensatory offers we will get.

If i was booked on Adonia looking at the new brochure which shows nothing after February 23 i would be concerned and want an explanation ASAP.

February of what year!? 😕

The only cruises NOT showing on the website are from the end of March 2019, not 2018. That is the time period that this is about. All her cruises for 2018 are available.

So why aren't they shown in the new brochure, in the complete list of cruises at the back, even though they had been shown in the previous brochure that came out some six months ago? P&O ought surely to have known that this would cause much speculation and alarm.

If you are booked on her in May then there is no problem.

The only oddity at the moment is the fact that her cruises aren't on the P&O website for 2019, from April onwards.

P&O have told us they are simply still working out her itineraries for that period. It has nothing to do with 2018 cruises.

What is causing people concern is that, though the 2018 cruises are still shown on the website, unlike those for all P&O's other ships they are no longer shown at the back of the latest brochure, the last Adonia cruise being shown there being her repositioning cruise back from the Caribbean in March 2018.

Not sure which brochure you have access to, but the one we have is dated July 2017 to March 2019 and in that one every single ship only goes to March 2019.

I was going by the reports on Facebook that the 2018 cruises aren't showing in some brochures. Not that I normally believe all the rumours that go around.

The brochure that does not list Adonia cruises after February 2018 is the new one that was issued on Monday and that is January 2018 to October 2019.

If I then quote Cruisepuss "The one we have takes her to the cruise dated 9th March lasting 21 nights, with her ending up in Southampton", perhaps you are looking at the old brochure which is what is causing so much consternation.

Perhaps, just for once, the diehard P&O champions on this board could just stop being in total denial about any wrong doing on the part of P&O and accept that there just might be a chance that they are going to dump her yet again.

I hope not as we are booked on her for the end of next year but I wouldn't be shocked if it proved to be the case.
