From pix I've seen of the area the ship will not be able to dock. Downtown is covered in mud and roads are blocked.

I wish the best for the folks there. Had a stop there a few years ago and have fond memories of the day.

Had a stop there on our T/A in December. It was beautiful, remember remarking to our tour guide how clean and lush everything there is. He replied that they take a lot of pride in Funchal - Too bad.......
