This was a great river cruise. The Duoro river is surrounded by the most consistently beautiful scenery in the world. Steep banks with terraced vines, gorgeous. Porto rivals Positano (my favorite) but Porto is bigger and has more to offer. Uniworld was very good, food...More

Regular cruise-ship travellers won't find much that's new in what follows, but if anyone is contemplating a first cruise it may be helpful. We spent a week on the Douro in the Infante Don Henrique; it seemed to be typical of CroisiEurope river ships, with...More

Would I recommend Emerald Radiance on the Duoro – YES in a heartbeat – and I am not easy to please. We chose Secrets of the Duoro and Salamanca simply because we wanted to enjoy the climate and scenery of Portugal whilst lazing on the...More

We spent a week on the Emerald Radiance. The ship and crew were fantastic, a floating 5*hotel. Temperatures vary from mid 20s to mid 39s so take cool clothing and sun screen. Dress is informal but long trousers and shirts are worn by most in...More

Travelled with Riviera Travel in May on the Douro Elegance. Apparently, the only Riviera employee is the Cruise Director, all of the other staff including the other guides are employees of the cruise company, Azul. This was made clear at the outset when one elderly...More

Just returned from a week on the Douro on this lovely ship. Only a maximum of 30 guests, with 14 crew to look after us, it was a wonderful, restful holiday. The food, prepared by M.Christophe Tremblaye, was really excellent, catering for Vegetarians each meal,...More

We had wet (and I mean wet) and stained carpets on Day 1. The manager tried to say they were just damp perhaps from a recent shampooing. Our steward said he didn't shampoo them. Lots of rooms on the lower floor had them so it...More

This was an excellent trip to take, but be aware that sailing plans are very subject to river conditions and if Spain releases water from the dam, you can not travel as far up the Douro as you'd like. All that being said, Viking and...More
