Why Travel Solo
Follow the path of one of loveliest river valleys on the continent on this popular European river cruise through the land where the Age of Discovery began. Your Douro River cruise follows Portugal's storied river through the spectacular Douro River Valley. Meaning "River of Gold" and now designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Douro was unnavigable until a series of dams built in the 1950s and '60s tamed its rapids. On this unforgettable Portugal river cruise, you'll navigate the Douro aboard our privately chartered river vessel, the 130-passenger ms Douro Spirit, from Oporto to the Spanish border and back again. Before commencing your Douro River cruise, you'll discover Portugal's close ties to the sea with a stay in Lisbon. Enjoy the experience as your European river cruise ship glides past graceful terraced vineyards — narrow canyon walls — and bucolic villages. You'll even enjoy a day trip to explore the magnificent university town of Salamanca, Spain. Your Portugal river cruise also features a gourmand's paradise of food and wine, served up to you in a number of tantalizing venues — from a 14th-century monastery to the Avessada Winery.
Whatever it is that piques your interest in European river cruises —food, wine, scenery, history, art, or simply the joy and relaxation of river travel — you'll find it on this Douro river cruise. Come join us, and savor the pleasures of a sumptuous Portugal river cruise — at the best value to be found.
