Azamara Club Cruises has entered into an agreement to purchase a sister ship to Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest, with delivery set for March 2018. Currently sailing as Adonia for P&O Cruises, it will be renamed Azamara Pursuit.

'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. 'Our loyal guests and travel partners have asked for this expansion for a long time; we are very pleased to deliver this to them.'

Like Azamara Quest and Azamara Journey, Adonia was built as an 'R' ship for Renaissance Cruises. It previously sailed for Carnival Corp. & plc's Fathom before returning to the P&O fleet in the spring.

Together, the three ships will support Azamara's commitment to destination immersion and longer stays in port.

Adonia's décor will be updated to match the Azamara upmarket brand positioning. These updates will be similar to the renovations recently introduced on Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest, bringing passengers the experience of a boutique hotel at sea.

Deployment and itineraries will be available in October.
