Iona departs from Funchal

Ports largest visitor departs – video

Iona departing from Funchal

Tur TV have a very good 3-minute video of the Iona departing from the port of Funchal yesterday – below.

Beneath, they have another longer video of the Iona arriving at 5:30 yesterday morning – the initial shots giving a good impression of the size of the cruise ship with very nearly 5,500 passengers and crew on board. Both videos show the Europa, generally considered to be a reasonably sized cruise ship, dwarfed by P7O’s latest flagship.

The good news for the local economy is the business that the 10,000 tourists generate – according to JM they requested 191 vehicles of various descriptions for excursions.
