We left Lisbon early Tuesday morning and have just spent 3 days on the island of Madeira. Madeira is part of Portugal, but is located off the coast of Africa just west of Casablanca. A small island of about 800 sq km. It's 55 km long and no more than 22 km wide. Amazing landscape. There's a mountain range in the middle of the island reaching to a height of almost 2000m.

The distillery was followed by a snack stop at a ...
... games, etc. There's so much more I could describe which sets this ship apart from others we've sailed, but I won't subject you to it. Suffice it to say that we're so thoroughly enjoying it.
