The fireworks in Madeira on New Year’s Eve are a mere shadow of what they used to be. The recession has really bitten into them. the celebration is due to sail at 22.00 on new year’s eve, but it will stop just outside the harbour along with around 7 other ships, you get a far better view from outside the harbour than you will get if you are moored.
