This website would not let me put in the correct details! RIVIERA TRAVEL - on the DOURO SPIRIT - from OPORTO. Flying into Lisbon with Easy Jet from Bristol. A nice cruise with plenty of stops visiting interesting places. Interesting meals out and coaches very modern and comfortable. Food not memorable but adequate, free drinks on trips out and cocktails on ship occasionally otherwise pay. Most staff were friendly and polite. However, the cabin was not as spacious as the pictures led to believe and the bathroom could do with a makeover. The dining room was very cramped when the ship was full and there were not enough seats for talks and meetings in the lounge/bar. There was a good tea/coffee station although the mugs were often cracked and chipped. Electric blind in the cabin, together with the air-con had no instructions. The coach trip from Lisbon to Oporto is very long and tedious, ask for an alternative. DO NOT pick a cabin at the rear of the ship, especially on the middle deck. They are over a very noisy generator which never gets switched off. We had a very uncomfortable sleepless week - so be warned!

choose bow cabins, beyond the tea station if you can or in the middle. Upper Deck may be better cannot comment.
