P&O Cruises smallest vessel, the Adonia (ex-R Eight, Minerva II, Royal Princess), has officially been transferred to Azamara Crusies. She will be transformed to the Azamara Pursuit in a drydock in the Bahamas.
Whats neat about this is two things. One is P&O’s parent is Carnival Corp, and Azamara’s is Royal Caribbean. So Carnival sold a ship to Royal Caribbean. Not something anyone could have guessed. Also Azamara has been very candid with the process. Check out these pictures:

I am very glad to announce that captain Carl Smith has taken command of Adonia, to be known Azamara Pursuit whilst on blocks in Grand Bahama Yard March 14th 2018 at 1200 hours.
