Western Mediterranean Cruise: 16 nights in May 2012

Barcelona - Plaça Reial
Set Sail to the Mediterranean and take a rejuvenating break on the seas. Leave Southampton for Lisbon, where you can get some of the best views of the Portuguese capital come as your ship cruises along the Tagus River. The Baixa district has busy streets of inviting shops, cafés and restaurants while Alfama is the atmospheric old town with narrow cobblestone streets, medieval and Moorish-style buildings, wrought-iron balconies with trailing flowers and a mix of small shops and bars. In Gibraltar get a wonderful view of Algeciras Bay and the Moroccan mountains from the Rock Restaurant, served by cable car from the Grand Parade. Birdwatchers can spot more than 230 species and there are clearly marked nature trails you can follow to discover the country’s flora and fauna. Be sure to visit the historic Catalan Church of San Francesco, with its ceramic dome and Gothic belltower in Alghero, Italy. Everyone needs to experience Rome's breathtaking monuments- the Collosseum, Trevi fountain and the Vatican City. The delightful seaside town of Portofino is a favourite Italian Riviera hangout of the rich and famous, but for lesser mortals, there are cheerful pizzerias and craft shops in the streets around the waterfront. Eat some Mussels and Oysters in Sete, France and be in awe of all the Gaudi architecture and vibrant fruit markets in Barcelona. Pop into Port Mahon, Menorca before cruising to Portimao, Portugal where you can dine on the freshest fish around.

About the Adonia

Adonia will be the smallest of the seven ships within the fleet. Designed to offer a wonderfully intimate cruising experience, she will radiate small ship charm. Stepping on board will be akin to returning home; there will be a comfortingly familiar feel to your surroundings with experienced P&O Cruises officers and crew on hand to look after your every need. Her Crow’s Nest will offer far reaching views by day and live music by night, and Anderson’s bar will feel reassuringly British. In her grand lounge, the dance floor will play host to an elegant waltz or cha-cha-cha and its stage will present a wide range of evening entertainment. There will be a card room with panoramic ocean views, ample sunbathing space and restaurants which range from six-course silver service to al fresco grill fare. Adonia is an Adults Only ship and therefore will not allow passengers under 18years onboard. Read more about the Adonia here!
