MV Funchal

MV Funchal is a rare find; a sleek, jewel like gem that harks back to the great ocean liners of old, with a classic, balanced profile and a hull deep enough to make her a good sea boat. Almost awash with old world courtesy and charm, Funchal will take you back on a voyage to the classic era of glamorous ocean sojourns courtesy of Classic International Cruises.

Once the private yacht of the Portuguese president, she measures in at a little over 9,500 tons, and is a compact 153 metres long. Six decks accommodate some 430 passengers, looked after by a crew of 155.

The lido deck that surrounds the aft outdoor pool is beautifully furnished and, like the rest of the ship, it is impeccably maintained. Long, sweeping promenades lined with deck chairs invite you to unwind, and take a rest from the superb cuisine featured in both main restaurants.

Funchal is a lively, intimate ship that will captivate anyone with even an ounce of romance in them. Proud and well served, she has all the mod cons a passenger could want, all wrapped up in a beautifully presented gift box that takes passengers on what will be, no doubt, one of the most epic adventures of a lifetime.
