Sunday December 29 sees Portuscale Cruises’ traditional liner Funchal (above) rebuilt and departing Lisbon on her first cruise for her new owners in a revitalization of the Portuguese passenger fleet. Meanwhile, on the other side of the pond, American Cruise Lines have announced orders for four new 150/200-berth riverboats to be delivered between 2015 and 2017. And in Gibraltar, the final touches are being put to the 15,000-ton floating yacht hotel Sunborn Gibraltar, which is due to open in February.
