Funchal, Madeira – A Cruise Port Guide

The island of Madeira is volcanic and rises sharply out of the sea – making for a good deepwater port close in to the main town, Funchal, and dramatic views of the cliffs, the airport and the mountains above when arriving and departing. The harbour is quite small with only a single cruise ship docking at one time. There is a very small Cruise Terminal with little in the way of facilities except a taxi rank.
