Looking forward to trying out the little ship for the first time in June 2014. We are on B-deck right in the middle on the starboard side. I assume that is OK ?

we have been on the Adonia twice and are really looking forward to rejoining her in September. We were on her for Christmas and New Year and had a really wonderful holiday.She has a lovely feel about her and the décor is great

The ' partly obstructed ' balcony cabins are often sold as Getaway deals ... an absolute bargain as the obstruction is zilch, just a triangle missing top right / left from the balcony view.

We have cruised twice on Adonia and love her. Both times we have been on B deck. The first cabin B009 was just below the outside flying bridge and my husband enjoyed several early morning chats with the deputy captain as we came into port! This year we did Norway and North Cape in May and had B020. This was booked as an "obstructed view" Getaway fare, however we were lucky enough to be allocated one with a completely clear view. I'm sure that P&O use this "obstructed view" as a way of selling cabins off cheaply! On both cruises the cabins were lovely, beautifully clean and plenty of storage space. Hair dryer maybe not the best, but if that's all I can think of to complain about it shows how good the rest is! We are doing a Baltic cruise on Arcadia in August this year, again booked a Getaway fare balcony cabin, and we are just waiting to find out which cabin we will have. I have never been able to fault any of our cabin stewards, they are friendly without being over-familiar, and just can't do enough for you. I really miss being looked after when I get home and back to reality!

We had A60 in September. It's the 1st cabin on the port side when you come out of the aft lifts. No issues with noise the 2 weeks we were on board. Kept spotless by our cabin steward.

Would we have the cabin again...you bet.

Did you have Arwin? We were in A50 in October and similarly had no problems with noise. It was a lovely cabin, plenty of room for our needs and we were very happy with it. It was also very handy for the library, Sorrento and the buffet dining room.

Yes we did. What a nice chap. The cabin was ideal for us as the wife is a part time wheelchair user.
The only problem we had was we couldn't fit 2 of our cases under the bed but Arwin took them away and bought them back on the last sea day. Great ship.

He's a lovely chap - very quiet and unassuming, recently got married.

We always had a problem getting one of our suitcases under the bed as it was too deep but after reading a suggestion on here we now open it out and put shoes, rainwear and anything we don't regularly use in the two 'trays'.

We are on Adonia in June to the Baltic, and will be in cabin B092. I have had conflicting reports on this cabin, some folks saying it is fine and others that it is noisy and some folks have insisted on being moved! Needless to say I'm a tad worried. I have checked out similar cabins on Azamara ships, which are substantially the same as Adonia (ex Renaissance ships) via a spredsheet and thread on cruise critic, but can't find any info on that specific cabin. However, some folks report a loud hum in similar cabins on the opposite side of the ship.

If anyone has any info I would be very grateful.

It sits between two other passenger decks so the only noise could potentially be the tender going out n back. We have booked 3 different cabins on this deck without any complaints whatsoever.

Comments:

My first impression was that the bathroom was ridiculously small, but once I started to use it, I found that it was actually fully functional and fine for single person occupancy (unless one was in the shower - or you actually wanted to swing a cat.)
The cabin was spotlessly clean, and the comfortable. The only noise we had was from the lido deck immediately above us. This was usually from the crew moving chairs about etc - but only during sociable hours, though on one rough night there was a table or some such rolling around on the deck above us. The cabin was livelier than expected given its midships position, but the sea state was decidedly choppy, and a force 9 blowing, so the whole ship was moving around a lot. Certainly I found Adonia did not cope with rough seas as well as the bigger ships Oriana or Oceana - but then she is only half their size. The movement didn't worry me, but my OH certainly did not enjoy it.

Comments:
this cabin is great for our needs, easy reach of everywhere.
Adonia had a curious motion which doesn't agree with my balance problem. OH watched as we sailed in the Force 12 winds and likened it to a corkscrew... (but it coped better then than on the B of B)

I'll load piccies later

Hi Meg,

We are on Adonia end of August and have booked C77 balcony cabin. We were last on Adonia in 2011 which was P & O s first season. Was the fridge in your cabin in the Wardrobe? Ours was but we were told that they would be being relocated at some point.

Has anyone ever stayed in cabin A93 or any other cabin which is located at the stern? Was it okay?

We recently ( May 2015 ) stayed in A86, a partially obstructed balcony cabin which is as far back as is possible to go without being in an aft cabin facing the wake.

We have booked into several of these and would generally rate them highly, for the price, but those on 'A' Deck on our cruise travelling via the BOB were more inclined to roll side to side ... book a lower deck if paying the full fare would be my advice.

Agree with everything you say MOB. We stayed in C86 on our cruise in April/May 2015 (could have been the same cruise as you D509) and did not feel too much of a roll but our table companions who had a cabin towards the front of the ship on A deck felt more movement. We only booked 3 weeks before departure and could not get our favourite midships outside on D deck so had to take what was available and chose C86 obstructed balcony. The only obstruction was the top left-hand corner of the balcony. We would definitely have one of these cabins again.

I have just had a look on the P&O website and couldn't find any photos of obstructed views cabins on Adonia. They seem to have them for other ships.

Prior to Adonia going to Fathom there were photographs of the obstructed cabins on the P&O site I remember as I had a look when we booked a TA. They may put them back once she is back in the fleet.

Which photos are of Adonia because when you click on a photo and then click on 'view page', none I clicked were of Adonia, just Arcadia & Oriana?

I was sent a photo by a TA of an obstructed view balcony cabin on Adonia before we booked 50 nights on her and the obstruction was just a pillar to one side which may just have been in the way of moving the balcony chairs in the direction of the sun, no lifeboats at all. In the event, as we were on 2 long cruises, we booked an unobstructed balcony cabin.

oh well, Thanks for your help guys thanks for taking the trouble to find some photos, thinking of booking it just as a little cheeky 16 night cruise it's going to be cold, balcony won't be of much use plus we are never really in the cabin for any length of time, thank you all again

Handy site LC. Some of these obstructed/part obstructed windows aren't really such a problem and you can save a few pounds if you get the right one. However you do really need to see what you are getting because some are totally obstructed and apart from the odd seagull and sky you will see nothing at all.

The best ones on Adonia are the ' obstructed ' balcony cabins at the aft, last one(s) prior to being on the stern.

Nought but a bit of a triangle partially obscuring one's view at the far right / left hand side.

Thought I should chip in my two-pennyworth....

Cabin Number: B061 (de-luxe balcony)
Overall Rating: 5*****
Cleanliness: 5*****
Furnishings: 5*****
Balcony: 4****
Bathroom: 4****
Location: 5*****
Stability: 5*****
Quiet Cabin?: 4****
Comments: This cabin is right in the middle of the ship on the starboard side (we have previously also had B063 which is on the other side of the central divide)

I have marked Furnishings as 5* even though it does not have a coffee table - in fact, I think this was a bonus as it allows much more space around the sofa/dressing table area. Balcony adequately spacious and furnishing fine although the dividing partition with B059 has a gap of almost 6 inches all around so you wouldn't feel at all comfortable going out there without your kit on !! Bathroom cupboard space a bit limited but there are additional shelves and racks - my main reason for marking it down is the rather unpleasant-looking non-slip coating applied to the shower tray which makes it look like it is seriously mildewed and the shower curtain is very ill-fitting.

It is usually a very "quiet cabin" except on tender port days. Two of the starboard lifeboats are invariably used as tenders and this cabin is directly above the gear for one of them so there can be much banging and grinding from below anytime after 7 a.m. on tender days!

Generally a very good cabin and we would definitely go for B61 or 63 again (although the corresponding cabins on the port side might be preferable !
