P&O Cruises has canceled the January 3 (2012) sailing of Adonia for urgent maintenance prior to the ship's 3-month program to South America from the UK. The January 3 sailing was to have been a 10-day cruise from Naples to Southampton.
The line is managing to operate Adonia's holiday cruise, which is a 14-night cruise in the eastern Mediterranean from Athens to Naples on December 20.
P&O says passengers on the canceled sailing are being given a full refund plus a future cruise credit of 25% of what they paid for the canceled cruise. The line did not disclose the exact nature of the urgent maintenance but said it was an "unavoidable decision."
