The first scheduled arrival is that of the Star Legend (formerly Seabourn Legend) on the 13th of February.  The ship appeared in the film Speed ​​2: Cruise Control, starring Sandra Bullock.  The Star Legend is the first of three Windstar Cruises ships which will dock in Funchal harbour throughout 2020.

In April the brand new Scenic Eclipse, from Scenic Cruises will arrive on the 23rd of April.  Considered one of the most luxurious cruise ships in the world, the Scenic Eclipse is something different as she is, in fact, a mega-yacht with all the luxuries of a cruise liner. 

Finally, the Seven Seas Splendor, from Regent Seven Seas, will arrive two days later.
