  • The most beautiful Norwegian Fjords: 7 days/6 nights

    The best-kept secret of Northern Europe, a place where shades lurk in between mountains, mingling with the light reflected on the green waters; where snow crystals feed flowers and waterfalls gush down narrow inlets. Winding fjords travel many kilometers inland.

    Their majestic bends often give the impression that the journey has come to an end, but as one bypasses the mountain’s steep slope, the fjord continues for many more kilometers. And when you least expect it …there, in front of your eyes, is the world’s most astonishing train journey: Flaam-Myrdal, which takes us along Europe’s longest and deepest fjord, Sognefjorden.

    Simply enjoy the paradise-like Norwegian landscape!

    And now, on board M/V Funchal, is your time to find out why.
     
    Did you know that it’s impossible not to get lost in Algiers? With one of the largest Kasbahs in Africa, the city’s narrow alleys and numerous dead ends make it look like a real urban labyrinth.

    The country is known to have been inhabited since the 6th century by the Phoenicians and Carthaginians, being successively occupied over the centuries, but nonetheless keeping its Mediterranean roots and strong ties with Europe.

    Now you know what to expect, what are you waiting for to come and feel this vibrant city!

    Andalusia is surely the ideal destination to make us dream with Arabian stories. Romantic landscapes with small villages dotted with white houses, bathed by a warm sun and cooling shade of the mountains and the Guadalquivir valley.
     
    The eight centuries of Arab history and occupation have granted Andalusia with a unique architecture, the best examples of which are the mosque in Córdoba or the Alcazar and Giralda in Seville.
     
    Feel like a sultan and become a part of the 1001 Arabian nights!

> 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.

Portuscale Cruises will always deliver the truth. We are happy to welcome any stakeholder to visit the vessel.

Thank you.

Rui Alegre
Chairman & CEO

NOTE: We ask to everybody to, please do not rely nor believe in any information which is not from an official entity or Portuscale Cruises. Many rumors and false declarations are being divulged which are for sure based on wrong information of the facts.



> 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.
