Adonia lights up the skies of Southampton

Posted on Sunday, May 22, 2011 |
P&O's newest ship was named this weekend in a ceremony in Southampton, presided over by her godmother, singing legend Dame Shirley Bassey. The VIP event involved a performance by opera group Incognito, and actor Hugh Bonneville as Master of Ceremonies. Fireworks, silver confetti and the traditional smashing of a bottle of bubbles saw the former Royal Princess become Adonia.

A minor makeover to 'briticize' the ship meant that the electrical sockets in the cabins have been changed to British 3-pin ones, a few restaurants have been added and the currency onboard is now Sterling.
