Douro River Cruises

8-Day Villages and Vintages: Cruising the Douro River Valley

Portugal's Douro River offers an authentic taste of life and world-class wines in a region steeped in winemaking for over 2,000 years. Explore the colorful city of Porto from the historic riverfront Ribeira district, walking to Villa Nova de Gaia and riding a cable car for panoramic views. All along the winding river, see picturesque quintas lined with terraced vineyards, traditional flat-bottomed rabelo boats that once hauled barrels of Port, and timeless World Heritage Sites offering cultural and scenic riches in one of the oldest wine-producing regions on Earth. The 84-guest riverboat, ms Andorinha, custom crafted for the Douro, influenced by the Portuguese culture, and named for a little swallow that symbolizes home, family, love and loyalty.
