P&O always have at least one cruise ship in port in Funchal, Madeira Island on 31 December every year since the nineteen eighties when CANBERRA berthed at the pier's head.
There is no other place to call on New Year's eve like Funchal with the famous fireworks display and P&O knows that.
On 31 December 2011 the P&O fleet was again represented by their elegant AURORA which spent the morning at anchor exhanging positions with QUEEN ELIZABETH at about noon in order to berth at the pier's head...
Photographs kindly sent by Nuno David de Jesus... This past 31 December we were unable to go to Funchal for a safary of cruise shipping photography as usual, much to our regret.
