Porto Santo will merit attention of two cruises between Monday and Tuesday, carrying about 1,700 passengers.
As reported by JM yesterday, this is an unusual fact, because the island is not usually on the route of these tour operators.
The first to arrive in the port of the ‘golden island’ is the Artania, which arrives on the golden island at 7 o’clock and leaves for Funchal at 3 o’clock. It travels with a crew of more than 500 people, having about 1,200 passengers on board.
Also arriving on the island of Porto Santo tomorrow is the luxury cruise Europe 2, at 9 o’clock, which has a capacity of 516 passengers and a crew of 370 employees.
Both ships will be anchored offshore due to lack of space.
