 Our 1st Port of call, on our cruise was Madeira, it was dark when we docked.


After our breakfast -  DW filmed a while before we left the ship Arcadia, to explore Madeira.

1st thing we did was  to photograph  our ship.


As we hadn't booked a guided tour, we thought we would take the open top bus and see for ourselves what Madeira had to offer.

I think it is better to pay for those guided tours when visiting a new city/area... THEN---if you go back sometime, you can do your own thing the next time...

Looks like a beautiful place... Love your ship also.
