Default How would you like to have Lisbon Fado?

Hello cruisers!
Most cruises do not stay overnight in port and beautiful Lisbon is no exception.
But the thing is: One of the most interesting entertainments to do in Lisbon is to go and listen to the world heritage Fado but there are only shows in the evening!
How would you feel if someone would give that show for you in the morning or in early afternoon?
Great thing hey?
please answer the poll.

Performing Fado in the morning would be a bit strange. However, in the afternoon it would be OK.

Please excuse my ignorance, but if you don't ask you will never know (and I don't feel like googling .) What is a Fado?

Fado is a music genre from Portugal. It goes back to the early 19th century.
The songs are very emotional and sung with great feeling.

It would be odd in the daylight; on the other hand at least some of the Fado venues don't have windows and those that do could be covered.

I'd go, because it's a fascinating experience and I haven't gone for years.

You are welcome.


The explanation only touches the surface. It's something to experience because Fado singers put so much emotion in their songs.

Thank you all for the replies!
No one else would like to answer my poll?
I have a Lisbon contact that is willing to organize this for us!
He just wants to know if there is enough demand.

My next chance to hear some Fado will be in Funchal, Madeira. We have booked a trip to spend six nights there at the end of this year.
