Covid tests over Christmas

Azamara in Funchal port

The Azamara, pictured in the foreground, joined the Saga “Spirit of Discovery” and the Tui “Marella Explorer” in Funchal port today. Whilst the other two are regular visitors to Madeira the Azamara, docked on the north pier of Funchal port alongside the CR7 hotel, is an infrequent visitor – at least as far as I am aware.

The publicity claims that the vessel is a “luxurious boutique hotel at sea. The Azamara Journey is a mid-sized ship with a deck plan that’s intimate but never crowded, and offers everything modern voyagers are looking for—plus some unexpected extras”.

The ship features a large number of staterooms and suites with verandas “perfect for starting your day with fresh sea air and stunning views”.
