Madeira's lush southwest coast is the star of this all-inclusive cruise. And after setting out from the port in Funchal, you'll head up the less-explored coast to Cais da Lapa for some swimming. The best part is that with a maximum of 52 guests on board, you'll have all the space and attentive service you need to enjoy a relaxing experience at sea.
Settle in on deck with a cold drink in hand, and feel the Atlantic breeze wash over you. You'll glide along the intensely green coastline – soon coming upon Cabo Girão, which towers out of the azure sea at a height of 580 meters. You'll get to cool off in the crystal-clear waters of Cais da Lapa, where boats from no other company stop, while your crew prepares a lunch of homemade dishes.
Wash these down with wine from the Alentejo region, enjoying laughs with your group before making the serene journey back down the coastline – hopefully accompanied by some curious dolphins or sea turtles.
