This journey involves moderate to active in most locations with many sites along the Douro River requiring stair climbing. If you wish to extend your walks, your Cruise Director or local guide can suggest scenic routes nearby. At the same time, there is plenty of time to relax aboard your river cruise ship, and should you wish to forego any activity, you are always at liberty to do so. For the fullest enjoyment of this trip, we recommend that you be in reasonably good health, and able to walk at least two miles unassisted.
Throughout your Douro River cruise, you’ll be exposed to local arts and entertainment both on shore and aboard ship. For example, you’ll enjoy live entertainment on board, including a Portuguese folk music show performed by the group Alto da Escrita, as well as performances by an authentic tuna band, lively flamenco show, and Music Trio. You’ll also enjoy fun activities ashore, including a pub crawl.
