Amera Cruise Ship also in Port Santo

Porto Santo busy for New Year's Eve 3Porto Santo will also receive a rare visit from a cruise ship on the last day of the year. It is the “Amera”, which will arrive at Porto Santo on December 31, at 11:00 am, from Santa Cruz de La Palma, and will sail the same day at 6:00 pm, heading for the fireworks in the bay of  Funchal.

This cruise ship will carry 3,500 passengers and 1,000 crew members. Passengers are most likely to come ashore via the various ferries the ship has for this purpose. Because of this, the quiet local trade in the city centre may have a faster movement.
