A&P Falmouth’s planning and round-the-clock working has ensured P&O Cruise’s newest ship, Adonia, is due to leave Falmouth a day ahead of schedule.
The 30,000 tonne ship arrived in the port in the early hours of Sunday for unscheduled repairs in dry dock at A&P.
She docked at 2.30am and work began at 6am, as soon as the dock was dry. To assist this, A&P managed to re-shuffle other vessels in the docks, with the approval of their owners, to accommodate Adonia.
With just four days allowed to complete the essential maintenance before Adonia begins an 87-night world cruise on Friday (13), it was all hands on deck at the busy yard.
A&P Falmouth MD Peter Child said: “We gave a major commitment to complete the work within the four day window, and we have delivered to ensure this happened.
“We are delighted to say the work was finished ahead of schedule, and Adonia will undock this evening (Wednesday) and sail for Southampton a day ahead of schedule.”
