Funchal was in Lisbon from 16 September 2010 until 15 August 2013. On this date she sailed for sea trials off the river Tagus bar.

She wais expected to return to service in July 20132, but this did not materialize and the ship was sold in January 2013 to Portuscale Cruises, following the colapse of Classic International Cruises in November 2012.

The refit of FUNCHAL was soon resumed by the new owners and completed in August 2013 in Lisbon.
