Default Madeira Island, why the extra cruise ships?

Hi All,
I went to the Maderia Island web cams and there were 4 cruise ships in port That is a lot for a small island, I found out why it's the Festa da Flor (Festival of Flowers). For people traveling to the island here is a link to the website. http://www.madeiratourism.org/pls/ws...gua=en&p_sub=1
Here is a pic of Festa da Flor

A couple of years ago, when we did a crossing, the stop on at Madeira was also during the flower festival. It was quite beautiful, and the downtown was filled with flowers and entertainment.

To bad Easter is so early next year. Cause we will miss the Festa da Flor on the 3 CCCs cruise. That's all right we will still have fun. This island has many different Festas, we may hit on a different one.
