Sail Date: Aug 2017
Cabin: Balcony Stateroom
Douro River at Vega Terron
Douro RIver from Sandeman Winery, Pinhao
Caldas de Aregos
Porto at night

This trip centered on a 7 day AmaWaterways

Port Wine & Flamenco Douro River cruise from Vega Terron to Porto, Portugal on the AmaVida ship.

When we first started to look at river cruising on the Douro, it seemed like Viking was the only player where we were likely to have mostly English speaking fellow passengers.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom

Cabin C

The cabin was compact but well designed.

The queen bed was flanked by nightstands on either side.

There were two small easy chairs and a round table at the foot of

the bed and a desk and chair on the outside wall in front

of a floor to ceiling window.

A slider next to the easy chairs opened to the balcony that

held two patio type chairs between a round table.

It was comfortable to sit out there and watch the vinyards high on

the hills as we sailed down the Douro.

The bathroom had a built-in vanity with double sinks, a doored toilet

room, and a separate shower.

The closet held terry bathrobes, hangers for our clothes, and a combination


A flat screen TV was mounted on the wall in back of the easy chairs

and the wall next to the entry door had some drawers below and flat bins

above for storage.

Air conditioning worked flawlessly.
