What people are saying about Funchal

Great day. Relaxing sail and a nice free wine! Beautiful ship. We saw pilot whales and dolphins but don't go just to see them. There is always a risk they won't be spotted. The ship and the experience are enough without the wildlife.

Unique experience on a 500 years old 1:1 replica ship! You can't have this experience anywhere else. I highly recommend!

lovely relaxing trip. crew are friendly. bar is very reasonably priced. complimentary Madeira wine and cake was lovely.

Very great, thrilling show and fantastic food, the only downside: the pick-up: tedious and cumbersome

A can't miss attraction with a ship that looks small, but holds many
