Funchal in 2009

All images link to larger copies which open in a new tab/window

Funchal was built in 1961 for the Portuguese line Empresa Insulana de Navegacao, Lisboa, and was used on the Lisbon-Azores-Madeira route. She was reconditioned as a fulltime cruise ship in 1973, when her steam turbines were replaced by diesels.
 
In 1974 Funchal was transferred, along with other surviving Portuguese passenger liners, to CTM (Companhia Portuguesa de Transportes Maritimos). Her exterior profile has changed little, with only a small extra deck added over the stern, and large tenders now carried in front of the bridge (since removed). Funchal is 9846grt in size, 501 ft long and carries 402 passengers. She is currently owned by Arcalia Shipping, Panama, and has been marketed as International Cruises and Classic International Cruises.
 
Funchal spent the (northern hemisphere) 2007/2008 winter in Australia, before returning for some spring cruises from Gothenburg. She called at Harwich on 14th April 2008 to disembark passengers whilst on passage from Suez to Gothenburg. In the spring of 2009, Funchal ran a series of cruises from Lisbon, before repeating her charter in Gothenburg. She again called at Harwich to disembark passengers on 3rd May 2009.
