The Adonia – Marine AV Installation

The Adonia is the smallest ship in the P&O fleet, carrying just 710 passengers and creating a more intimate and personal cruise experience. With wood-style panelling, a grand staircase and traditional artworks, Adonia’s ambience and décor are in keeping with the traditions of cruising yet, being a 21st century ship built in 2001, there is modernity to her beautifully crafted detailing.

Marquee AV was commissioned to design, supply and install new and upgrade entertainment sound and lighting systems throughout the ship, both on and below deck. On deck the sound system is required to withstand the full elements and Marquee AV designed the concert quality sound system around Community WET series loudspeakers with Turbosound subs, driven by QSC amplifiers. A Yamaha mixing console controls the system with digital system processing by Ateis. Marquee AV also carried out a substantial upgrade of the top deck with new stage and flood lighting.

The Royal Lounge received a substantial upgrade with the installation of a Yamaha mixing desk, additional loudspeakers from JBL and amplifiers from QSC. Further lighting was installed and a Sanyo projector with an electronically operated projection screen.

A high quality audio system was installed in the Piano Bar, with Audica Professional loudspeakers and amplifiers, an Allen & Heath mixer, Ateis DSP and Sennheiser radio microphones. Additional lighting and lighting control was also installed.

Background music systems were also installed in the Chapel/Library and Spa. To suit the décor and ambience of the Chapel/Library, Marquee AV installed an Audica Professional system with Allen & Heath mixing and a Numark MP3 CD player and, for the humidity conditions of the Spa, Bose environmental loudspeakers with QSC amplification and a Brennan MP3 hard disk player. Additional lighting was also supplied in the Spa.

The Forward Lounge Theatre benefitted from an upgrade of lighting, on stage music system and a stage and front of house digital multicore system and the ship’s restaurants were also upgraded with Brennan MP3 hard disk players.

Full configuration and equalisation of all the ship’s system was undertaken, with system mutes and safety cut-off checks, as the final part of commissioning by Marquee AV.
