The cruise fit our time frame and our budget. Very reasonable singles, which were much larger than we anticipated, and very comfortable. Thoroughly enjoyable. Tours were fun: well planned and very interesting, with electronic head gear so we didn't have to all bunch around the guide. The most impressive part was how efficiently the crew performed. The tours were pretty much timed to the minute. Every member of the crew was helpful and polite. The food was wonderful! The most impressive part was how efficiently the crew performed.

One awesome sight, not mentioned in any of the brochures or information, was the functioning of the locks. There were about 7 locks on the Douro, and they were awesome. Absolutely amazing to be on the top deck and watch how well they were engineered, and to watch the crew help the ship navigate through the locks, with only about 12" clearance on either side. All in all a wonderful trip.

I can't wait till I go on another one.

Cabin Review

Cabin single

Large windows. No feeling of claustrophobia. Bathrooms were just right. Cleaned every day. Twin beds in single, which was perfect: the second bed could be used to spread things out on.
