We chose this river cruise because it was highly recommended by our travel agent and other collegues who have gone on other river cruises. (The Douro river valley is very picturesque with its vineyards and old vineyard buildings dominating the landscape).

We had a 3 day stay in Lisbon before our departure. Hotel Jupiter Lisboa was excellent.

The included bus tour of the city was very good. but we thought the excursion to Sintra the second day should have been included in our price. The trip to Porto from Lisbon was somewhat long....we spent too much time in the resort town of Navarre where there was little too do but shop for trinkets.

Cabin Review

Cabin was small but very comforable. Housekeeping staff was excellent in keeping it clean and tidy.
