Azamara Club Cruises has entered into an agreement to purchase the ‘Adonia’ from P&O Cruises.

She is a sistership to ‘Azamara Journey’ and ‘Azamara Quest’. Delivery is due to take place in March, 2018.

“We are pleased to expand our portfolio by 50%, allowing us to visit even more regions of the world through the acquisition of this sister ship,” said Larry Pimentel, President and CEO of Azamara Club Cruises. “Our loyal guests and travel partners have asked for this expansion for a long time; we are very pleased to deliver this to them.” The new addition is to be named ‘Azamara Pursuit’.

The ship’s décor will be updated to match the brand’s upmarket position. These upgrades will be similar to the renovations recently introduced on the other two vessels, bringing guests the experience of a boutique hotel at sea, the company said.

P&O Cruises senior vice president, Paul Ludlow, said: “During her time with us ‘Adonia’ has captured the hearts of many thousands of P&O Cruises guests. She has ventured into new ports of call around the globe and has negotiated Icelandic Fjords, European rivers and Caribbean coves. We will ensure that these discovery itineraries are continued on other ships in the fleet.”
