Planning a trip cruise on the Adonia
? Here are a few things to keep in mind:
The atmosphere on the Adonia is quite traditional - the dress code is smart casual by day, but by 6pm formalwear is required.
Daily gratuities are expected, but these are not added automatically to your account - instead you can pay by cash at the end of your cruise.
Don't forget the Adonia is an adults-only ship - if you're travelling with family, you're best to try another P&O vessel, such as Azura or Aurora.
