Having been on several cruises we have not been lucky enough to witness any special events while on an excursion, but when there is it makes the visit to the port all that more worthwhile. This will be just what you will feel when you are sailing on the Fred Olsen cruise that departs on 3rd May, 2014 from Santa Cruz, Tenerife and will finish on 13th May, 2014 in Harwich, UK.
One of the ports of call will be Madeira and during that time you will be able to experience the wonderful and vibrant 2014 Funchal Flower Festival. The show will run from the 1st of May to the 7th of May, which just so happens to be the day when your ship comes into port.
Many of you will know that Madeira is such a colourful island and becomes even more vibrant during the Flower Festival – Madeira isn’t just about the wine.
While at the event you will witness those who take part dressed in vibrant costumes while walking along with the parade. There is a chance for you to also visit some beautiful gardens that offers some of the most wonderful smells.
It’s not all about flowers though, as there will be variety shows and classical music concerts to help make this one of the best days of the year in Madeira.
Prices for this Fred Olsen cruise starts at £539 and can be booked here, along with finding out more details about other ports of call.
