A personal note from Peter
I participated in the Captains in Cadiz event in September 2018, when all four ships were together. I was aboard Boudicca.
Although we cannot be certain what Fred. Olsen will arrange in Funchal, I can confirm that Cadiz was very well organised with each ship setting up games and competitions stalls on the quayside, as well as entertainment, photo opportunities with eight captains and a treasure hunt through Cadiz – and other events. Passengers were also able to go on board each of the four ships. The late afternoon sailaway in convoy was exciting, as the four ships performed a ‘180’ turn in unison. The entire day was blessed with gorgeous weather.
Silver Travel Advisor recommends Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines.
