Azamara buys Adonia to expand

AZAMARA Club Cruises has purchased P&O Cruises UK’s MV Adonia with the vessel to be delivered to the boutique cruise line in Mar 2018.

To be called Azamara Pursuit, the ship’s decor will be updated to “match the brand’s upmarket position” prior to beginning sailing under the brand.

“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,” he said.

Pursuit is comparable in size to Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest and is the last of eight “R” class ships originally built for Renaissance Cruises.

Details on Pursuit’s deployment, etc will be announced in Oct.
