  • Spitsbergen Cruise: 17 days/16 nights

    So embark on M/V Funchal to discover one of the planet’s most developed countries, the waters of the Arctic, the northernmost territories and the great wildlife.

    Following the signing of the Svalbard Treaty in 1920, this archipelago was integrated in the kingdom of Norway. Today, its major industries are scientific research, tourism and mining.

    In Longyearbyen you will find UNIS - University Centre of Svalbard and the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, a secure seed bank that stores three million types of seeds that will ensure plant diversity on a worldwide level in the event of extinction of these species. Definitely a unique and marvelous experience that combines the virgin desert with good life.

    One of the world’s few surviving wild areas awaits you: come and experience the Arctic at its best!

  • Atlantic Isles & Morocco Cruise: 8 days/9 nights

    A green oasis in the middle of the Atlantic, Madeira Island is a true Garden of Eden. With its stunning cliffs, rocky beaches and verdant mist-enveloped mountains, this unforgettable destination has an appealing sub-tropical climate and astonishing natural beauty.

    The Canary Islands or the Islands of Happiness as they are also known, enjoy year-round dry and sunny weather conditions. Of volcanic origin, the islands were discovered by the Portuguese in the middle of the XIVth century and later assigned by papal decree to the kingdom of Castile. The Botanical Garden, the Loro Park dedicated to the preservation of animal species, the extraordinary pools Lago Martianez, a masterpiece designed by the architect Cesar Manrique or the beautiful landscapes provided by Mount Teide are but a few examples of Tenerife’s treasures. The former capital Teguise, Los Valles, the “One thousand plam trees valley” and Maguez in the island’s northern region are the departure point to discover fascinating natural landscapes like the underground oasis of Jameos del Agua or the National Timanfaya Park, characterised by a 52-kilometer square sea of lava, a unique sight of geothermal phenomena.

    And then Casablanca, a radiant city filled with genuine treasures, like the Hassan II Mosque.

  • Gardens, History, Wine & Oysters Cruise: 14 days/13 nights

    So many cruises are keen to chase the sun and get as far south as quickly as possible that they overlook what is directly on our doorstep and on the shores of the beautiful Bay of Biscay. But don’t worry — our choice of departure date in the peak summer month of August will mean that you are still able to enjoy the sun even whilst exploring all that these charming and varied ports of call have to offer!

    We’ll take you to the Norman port of Honfleur where you can take optional trips to explore the beaches and memorials in this 70th Anniversary year of the D Day Landings, or to Monet’s Water Garden in Giverny, to the Basque city of Bilbao close to Spain´s celebrated Rioja vineyards, to Tresco and St. Mary’s in the Isles of Scilly where you can visit the world famous Tresco Abbey Gardens, and to La Rochelle and Bordeaux on France’s Atlantic coast, where you can sample some of the wine and seafood for which this region is so rightly world renowned.

  • Sun, Salero & La Movida Cruise: 8 days/7 nights

    Malaga, the largest coastal city of Andalusia will be our next port of call. Its charm and allure prevail in the city’s historic centre. Pablo Picasso’s birthplace, this is a cosmopolitan city, with old typical neighbourhoods, spacious and busy avenues, interesting museums and impressive monuments, like the vast Alcazaba or the cathedral’s astonishing mix of styles, all of which framed by a blue Mediterranean, breathing the joy and liveliness typical of Southern Spain.

    Cartagena, a modern port and commercial city, rich in history, culture and architecture, preserves the ruins of the period when the Romans dominated the region. Founded in the third century BC, the city is home to Spain’s oldest port which is currently also the country’s major port. Another option is to visit Murcia, a settlement founded by the Moors in the IXth century and conquered by the Christians in the XIIIth century.

    It was 8 million years ago that the Balearic Islands emerged from the sea. Born at the same time was the island of Ibiza, the third largest Balearic Island, boasting the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean. Worldwide known for its vibrant nightlife, and although it still has some of the hippy charm inherited from the 60’s, it has since become much more cosmopolitan and cool. The island was granted world heritage status by UNESCO in 1999. Find out why it is called White Island and have lots of fun!

  • Islands & Volcanoes of the Mediterranean: 15 days/14 nights

    With the exception of “Castelo de Bellver”, Palma’s most important monuments are concentrated in its historic centre.

    The small Island of Pantelleria has been a very well kept secret by Italian socialites.
    A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the capital of Malta is an intersection of cultures that gave life to the heart of the Mediterranean.

    Catania, dynamic and full of energy, surprises visitors with the richness of its historic centre and unique layers of solidified lava on the slopes of Mount Etna. In Messina, don’t miss a tour of Taormina.

    In Palermo, home of many poets and philosophers, you’ll be simply astonished with its byzantine and Arab-style monuments. Lipari, situated in the largest Aeolian Islands, was a safe haven for one of the world’s most famous pirates, Barbarossa. Sailing around Stromboli will give you a unique opportunity to watch one of the most violent nature shows, a volcano eruption.

    Olbia
    , a multi-faceted city, with beaches of an extraordinary beauty. With Corsica’s simple and delightful charm, we walk along the streets once trodden by Napoleon and see the house where he was born. Peaceful, beautiful and classified as a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, Menorca has only idyllic landscapes and beaches where the sun shines more than 2.700 hours per year. Is there a better way to end a cruise?

  • Dolce Italia Cruise: 8 days/7 nights

    Marseille is France’s largest and oldest city. Located on the Mediterranean coast, in the province of Provence, the city has an enormous culture mix as well as a unique and striking personality. Highlight goes to the Notre Dame de La Garde church, which dates back to 49 BC, which together with other ancient buildings, forms one of the most beautiful architectonic collections in the world. Its proximity to Monaco leads us to believe that Sanremo, in Italy, is an extension of the principality’s luxury and glamour. But you won’t find Monaco’s extravagance in Sanremo; it’s different and must be observed in detail as its architecture is captivating. Each building seems to tell a story. And each window appears to hide a mystery that everyone wants to unveil.

    From the Marina di Carrara it’s possible to visit Florence and Pisa, as well as the medieval town city of Lucca. In Florence, home of the Medici, of culture and art, don’t miss the Santa Maria dei Fiore cathedral, Piazza della Signoria and Ponte Vecchio (the only bridge in Florence that survived World War II bombings). From Civitavechia, it’s only a short trip to Rome, the eternal city on the banks of the Tiber River and one of the largest open-air museums, where each corner hides a work of art. It’s the heart of western civilization and Catholicism.

    Olbia is the gateway to the beautiful sandy beaches of Costa Smeralda. Fully displaying the “Dolce Vita” style, Sardinia is the meeting point for the world’s jet set, famous artists and politicians. The Island of Menorca has long been considered as one of the most beautiful Balearic Islands, the beauty of its beaches and its blue waters competing with the Caribbean.

    Barcelona
    is one of the most bustling cities in Spain, with tourists from all over the world strolling up and down the “Ramblas” all year round. Its most striking feature is undoubtedly the signature of the marvelous artist Gaudi, present all over the city, even in its post card: the Sacred Family Cathedral.

Dear stakeholders and friends,

> M/V FUNCHAL IS NOW AS SHE HAS NEVER BEEN BEFORE!
(30th Agosto of 2013)

Dear stakeholders and friends,

It is not correct to say that M/V  Funchal has non-certified lifesaving equipment and that her crew has not enough knowledge to handle any security situation.

Our crew is all certified by the relevant authorities. Moreover, no crew can embark without meeting the conditions of this certification.

It is true to say that there was an inspection, that we knew beforehand that it was going to be, and this we already knew in Lisbon, before departure. Moreover, inspections of various kinds are a common practice during a ship's operation.

This inspection occurred within normality, having the authorities (Inspectorate for the Port Control Authority of Gothenburg) been informed about the 2 breakdowns that were detected.

Well before the arrival at Gothenburg, the electric connection between the Bridge and 2 of the 15 watertight doors and 1 fire station were faulty.

Some other recommendations were made and measures were immediately taken for its resolution.

The inspection was suspended until all recommendations be implemented. All means are available on board to enable that all problems are resolved in the next couple of days.

Port authorities will then conduct a new inspection and we are sure that our ship will pass with flying colours and will resume her normal operation.

M/V Funchal is an excellent vessel that has just been totally refurbish with the highest quality materials and the best technical means.

It has been said many times: M/V Funchal is now as she has never been before!

Thank You.

Rui Alegre
Chairman & CEO



> WE ARE HAPPY TO WELCOME ANY STAKEHOLDER TO VISIT THE M/V FUCNHAL
(29th August 2013)

Dear stakeholders and friends,

M/V Funchal is great, has been rebuilt, and had a great navigation into Gothenburg.

It was found an electrical problem in the connection between the bridge and 2 watertight doors, as well as one sprinkler station. We informed the officials about These 2 situations and the departure was suspended until these repairs are completed satisfactorily.

All the technical means are on board.

These malfunctions can happen, and immediate actions are being taken to fix it. All crew and technical team needed are on board to make sure that all safety actions are guaranteed for a good sailing.

Our guests and visitors have been happy to see M/V FUNCHAL. Never has she been so good and comfortable. Any new building has always slightly adjustments which needs to be fixed. No structural malfunction has occurred. 

Portuscale Cruises is giving all the necessary means to fix these abnormal faults and proudly present to all the guests, what a great Vessel FUNCHAL is.

Rui Alegre

> M/V FUNCHAL IN GOTHEMBURG
(August 2013)

We inform our clients and friends that the M/V Funchal is in the port of Gothemburg repairing a technical fault detected but which is properly located and will soon be resolved. The vessel will follow her cruise operation as planned.

> ENORMOUS INTERVETION
(February 2013)

The new FUNCHAL is almost ready to start her new maiden voyage, we are preparing the last minute details.

FUNCHAL was subjected to an enormous intervention. The numbers bellow are impressive and gives us an idea of the dimension of the refurbishment:

- more than 300 Kms of electrical cables

- more than 3 Kms of pipes and conducts

- more than 500 Ton of Steel replaced

- more than 15.000m2 of new ceilings and carpets

Among many more items!

We truly know that many fans of this beautiful vessel are looking forward to see her navigate… We are now in the final stage were intensive tests, certifications, fixings and topcoats are being carried on.

This small delay is not more than this...

Until fairly soon!

Thank you.
