Portuscale Cruises is a new cruise company, which started operating in 2013 following the acquisition and revamping of four classic and charming vessels. The company’s motto is “small is beautiful”. After a lengthy refit, M/V Funchal, an icon in the maritime industry, has been operating since the summer of 2013. M/V Porto is a small, delightfully charming and cozy ship. M/V Lisboa, has a wonderful classic performance and magnificent deck areas and finally we have the recently rebuilt solid and modern M/V Azores. As the most symbolic vessel of our fleet and of the history of Portugal, the emblematic and fully rebuilt M/V Funchal is the ship which will be connecting Portugal’s ocean with a number of cruises in 2014, departing from Lisbon, Porto and Portimão to different destinations including Morocco, the Canary Islands, Madeira, the Mediterranean and Norway, to name but a few. Being mostly Portuguese, our friendly crew is there to offer our guests the pleasures of a personalized service, delicious gastronomy and excellent atmosphere in our different bars, entertainment and leisure activities. Portuscale Cruises operates its cruises in a sustainable manner, primarily focusing on a personalized service, experience and its passengers’ safety.
