Funchal (Madeira), PortugalLocation: Europe
In 2013, Disney Cruise Line returns to Funchal on the lovely, lush island of Madeira, part of an island chain that belongs to the Republic of Portugal located some 500 miles southwest.
Described as a tropical Eden, Madeira's trade winds keep temperatures mild year round as the sweet scent of vanilla and frangipani linger in the air. The island was formed from a massive undersea volcano and its fertile volcanic soil yields an amazing abundance and diversity of fruits, vegetables and flora.
This diminutive island is only 35 miles long and 13 miles at its widest point. But it is big on scenery and certain to be a memorable part of your Disney Cruise Line vacation.
