The number of cruise ships will rise next year compared to this year. Although we are still a little over a month of the end – of – year , the number of steamers that Harbours estimate that this year calling at the port of Funchal between January and December will rise to 292 cruise ships .
However , for next year , the same table for cruise ships that have reserved space at the main port of Madeira 307 show bellboy . Translates over 15 vessels , representing an increase of just over 5 percent.
In the table there are two scales of the Seabourn Spirit in November 2014. However , we chose not to account for a query because the cruise company program , Seabourn , for next year realizes that the two dates of 19 and 20 November , the small ship will be sailing the Caribbean . This same ship is scheduled to Madeira in the same month of November , on another scale 6 , inserted on a journey that will be precisely to head to that area of the central globe between North America and South
