We've done many river cruises and enjoyed them all. But this cruise on the Douro River between Spain and Portugal with AMA was by far the best! Having traveled on Viking and Uniworld before, we'd choose AMA again. The food was exceptional, the service excellent. There was no "nickel and diming" over water, cocktails or wine. The layout of the cabins was superior to other ships. The deck was spacious - most on board spent much of their travel time up there. The ports and side trips were all interesting, educational and had lots of options to choose from. They included wineries; fishing villages; beach areas; picnics; Fatima; Castelo Rodrigo; and many more. Portugal was beautiful!

The three day pre-cruise in Lisbon was well-planned. We stayed at the Intercontinental which was convenient to all the areas we wanted to see. Our cruise manager Mariana was professional and very helpful. I'd highly recommend this cruise!
