Christmas and New Year cruise
We are sailing through the day to arrive at Funchal, Madeira. The scheduled arrival time is 8pm which will leave us a couple of hours after dinner to get the party into full swing in the run up to the bells at midnight.
It was quite a rough sea all the way from Tenerife. No luck again in the carpet bowls or for that matter in the quiz/ brain teaser/ scattegories games.
Woo, bright cloudless skies and a temperature of 18 when we arrived in port today. After a quick breakfast off the ship and onto the shuttle bus into the town. First stop replenish the stock of tonic water, medicinal of course.
Very pleasant walking around the town with just a light cooling breeze. We've stopped at a marina cafe for a spot of lunch and Wifi. Could not be bothered trailing all the way back to the ship. We will now toddle around Arrecife again.
