Stranded in Madeira….

Heavy rain has caused flooding in the town on Funchal and we, on board, have been advised to remain on board
the ship.
The local police have closed the main street and this has caused major traffic problems.

We are perhaps in the best position – on a ship – as we watch torrents of rain water roll off the hills and cascade into
the open sea.

The plan was to be in Funchal till midnight and to sail away to a display of fireworks. Now the forecast thunderstorms
make cause some change of plans.

This evening Lulu and her 19 piece orchestra are due to entertain us – did she ever do singing in the rain ?

Still one of the best cruises inspite of a few niggles.



Our final port of call.
