Port: Funchal, Madeira
Destination: Mediterranean & Northern Europe

Climbing up towards the central mountain range, your tour takes the road that leads to Monte, a village notable for its many fine properties and gardens. At Monte you'll have the opportunity to take a trip back to the past when you join the toboggan ride back to Livramento. The ride down the hill on the wicker sledges is an exciting one, providing you with a taste of the Madeira of the past decades, when this was the established form of transport. Then, proceed to Pico do Arieiro, the third highest peak on the island with an altitude of almost 6,000 feet (1,818 meters). Views are spectacular up here and on a clear day, it is even possible to see Porto Santo, the neighboring island, which is situated 30 nautical miles to the north.


Continue to Camacha, a beautiful small village on the hills east of Funchal. It is famous for its 'Apple Festival' and its very active folklore dance groups. Camacha is also called 'the village of basket makers' which really doesn't do any justice - it represents the center of Madeira's willow craft industry. Today they make furniture, hats, ornaments, kitchen utensils, wine holders and of course, baskets of all sizes and shapes. All in all, over 1,000 different articles are on exhibition, which is an absolute 'must see' for every visitor.


Note: A jacket is recommended as Madeira has a microclimate. Tour involves walking on cobblestones and uneven surfaces with some approximately 10 steps at Monte, 10 to 15 steps at Pico do Arieiro and 5 to 12 steps at Camacha. Tour may be operated in reverse order.

Destination: Mediterranean & Northern Europe

Get to know Rotterdam, a city that offers creative and modern architectural sights, including the Weena building, a brilliant white office/apartment block located in the business sector, Café Rotterdam, Schouwburgplein and Kop van Zuid. You'll witness Coolsingel, the main street of the central area of Rotterdam on the right bank of the Maas. At the near end of this wide street stands the Town Hall, built between 1914 and 1920 in Dutch Renaissance style. View the 607-foot tall Euromast tower. The city center also boasts pre-war architecture such as the Van Nelle Factory, one of the most important historic industrial buildings in the Netherlands, and the Huis Sonneveld.


The innovative and adventurous period after the war is expressed in such structures as the Groothandelsgebouw, one of the first major buildings built after the bombing of Rotterdam in the Second World War, the Kunsthal, the Luxor Theater and the Erasmus Bridge, an almost abstract combination of steel and concrete. You’ll stop to view the Cube Houses - a great photo opportunity. Designed by Piet Blom in the '70s, the Cube Houses were intended as a post-Modern village.


You’ll also enjoy a brief walking tour of Delfshaven, a borough of Rotterdam on the right bank of river Nieuwe Maas. Delfshaven has officially only been part of Rotterdam for a little over 100 years, yet it was from here that the "Pilgrim Fathers" set out on their epic journey to America in 1620. Stop at the Veerhaven, for a great view of Hotel New York and your cruise ship.
