Nice to tour Portugal via the Douro, but expectations were not met AND I got COVID while onboard

Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2022

The ship is updated, clean and the staff are friendly and accommodating.

That said, I have a few safety concerns for anyone even with slight mobility issues. There are no grab bars in/around the shower. Although the ship is relatively stable on the river, there are occasional movements (locks/docking) that could cause one to lose their balance.

The ship has multiple outlets (only European) but it would be nice to have USB ports around the room for charging.

Cabin Review

The rooms are clean and light when the shades are open. As stated above, there is a need for grab bars in the shower area and USB ports would be helpful.

Due to what I'll call 'stacking' at night, we were usually had other boats next to us so the night shade had to be drawn often. This made the room feel much smaller and dark.
