We chose this wine river cruise as it worked with our dates for a wedding we were attending in Lisbon. We caught up with the pre-Douro River trip as they left Lisbon and took the train to Porto with them- using the company's transfer. Sonya- our cruise director for the week was very organized and connection was flawless. Cruise was well-organized, very active pace and lots to see and do. ...

We chose this cruise because of the location. We wanted to go to Portugal and we used AmaWaterways in the past. It was also a Wine Cruise. This was a wonderful cruise. The weather was superb and the excursions were very enjoyable. The Cruise Manager (Mariana) was one of the best and we hope to sail with her again. She handled a slight crisis (accident on the rails) and did not affect our ...

We've done many river cruises and enjoyed them all. But this cruise on the Douro River between Spain and Portugal with AMA was by far the best! Having traveled on Viking and Uniworld before, we'd choose AMA again. The food was exceptional, the service excellent. There was no "nickel and diming" over water, cocktails or wine. The layout of the cabins was superior to other ships. The deck was ...

I just returned last night from the Douro River Cruise on AmaVida. And I have a lot to say! First, the area is beautiful. We went to dinners at local wineries and they were, for the most part wonderful. The tours are the usual church, museum lot. There is very little free time if you want to shop or explore on your own unless you skip a scheduled tour. The Ama Vida was sorely understaffed. So ...
