Amazing staff made for a fabulous experience

My sister and I did the River of Gold itinerary in Portugal's Douro River valley. I enjoyed the smaller ship designed for the river as at 108 passengers it was a nice size - not too small and certainly not too many. ...

A little known area of Portugal

We have done several river cruises but none as quiet and relaxing as the River Douro in Northern Portugal. It is a beautiful area of the country and when we weren't relaxing, as the ship gently transported us from ...
