Adonia celebrations delayed

basseyboots.jpgIs Shirley Bassey a bringer of bad weather? I only ask because the portents for the christening ceremony of cruise ship Adonia at the weekend – at which she will be the godmother – are not looking good.
When she appeared at the 2007 Glastonbury Festival – one of the wettest and muddiest on record – the 74-year-old singer famously wore diamante-encrusted Wellington boots.
Saturday’s weather forecast for Southampton is not too bad; partly cloudy with a high of 65 degrees and a 10 per cent chance of rain. But bad weather has delayed the ship on its Atlantic crossing from a re-fit in Grand Bahama – and it was already late leaving the shipyard.
As a result, the inaugural events planned for Friday, including tours of the 30,000-ton vessel for travel agents from around the country – have been cancelled.
Possibly with fingers crossed for good luck, a P&O spokesperson said today: “The delayed arrival will not have any impact on the naming day and the ceremony will be proceeding as planned.”
