P&O ADONIA in Lisbon

ADONIA, the newest addition to the P&O Cruises fleet, visited Lisbon on her maiden cruise on 25 May 2011 and I was able to go onboard and take some photographs...
Being a much smaller ship than P&O other fleet mates, ADONIA seems to have all the ingredients to become a very popular ship particularly to those prefering a more familiar sized ship.
At 30.277 GT she is not exactly small, but anyway she must be seen as a club ship if compared to VENTURA or AZURA...
ADONIA was built in St. Nazaire as R EIGHT for Renaissance Cruises, in fact she was their last ship, delivered in February 2001. 
In 2003 she started operating for Swan Hellenic as MINERVA II and in 2007 was transferred to Princess Cruises as ROYAL PRINCESS. So ADONIA is her fourth name so far...
