I have sailed with Uniworld twice before and with Viking a few times. I chose this sailing because of the beauty of Portugal and the friendliness of its people. Although the scenery was lovely, people do need to understand that the regulations on the Douro only allow for sailing during daylight hours. This means very limited time in port and a lot of time on the ship. Also, except for Porto, ...

Overall excellent service. Boarding was very smooth. we were the first to board. Rooms were smaller than other Uniworld boats. We were on the lower level. this boat had a wider wall than other boats. The boat did have a problem with a lack of hot water. cold showers were not pleasant. The water problem did seem to get better later in the cruise, but only for short showers. Food service ...

Horrible guide, dreadful cruise experience as we were not on ship--long bus trips, guide did not give information or attend to our comfort, safety or try to give us a good experience. The food on the ship was wonderful, the people on the ship were wonderful, but 4 days out of 7, no sailing, and the promised excursions mostly did not happen. Instead we got long bus rides to second or third rate ...

We have travelled with Uniworld on other cruises and had found them very good. The Douro Valley was on our 'must do' list. Both the cruise and the ship exceeded expectations. Although the usual things ( mentioned below) met expectations it was the attitude of the staff on board and on arranged tours that made the trip very special. The staff were more than just friendly and helpful - they ...

My brother has done several river cruises with UNIWORLD and has always spoke highly of those experiences. We decided to join him and his wife on the Douro River cruise on board Queen Isabel. I expected a five star trip but this was not the case. The actual cruising time is only four nights. I don't think we needed two nights in Porto before sailing. We certainly did not need two nights at a place ...

I chose this cruise because I've always wanted to explore Portugal. Uniworld offered waived single supplements & I and several of my friends decided on this trip. From the moment we arrived in Lisbon to the day we reluctantly left the cruise ship we were pampered with excellent service, delicious food, entertained with wonderful local talent and guided by amazing tour guides. I thoroughly enjoyed ...

We were surprising my wife's sister and her friend. We had planned the trip for six months ane were able to keep it a secret until we caught up with the at the hotel in Lisbon. We were surprised to find the Douro River so scenic. The stops and excursions were all excellent, picturesque and informative. We had 10 days of cloudless skies and moderate temperatures. We particularly liked ...
