1) The 106-passenger ship is too small for “Exploring the World in Comfort”. Standard “staterooms” are really just bedrooms with no sitting area and an average of 20” on each side of the bed. There is no gym, walking track, medical room, theater, or specialty restaurants. If you choose not to go on an excursion, there is nothing to do but sit in the lounge and look at the view or chat with other guests. Low, 7’ plastic and metal ceilings in the lounge and dining room magnify the noise and make conversation difficult. Despite the small number of guests, the ship feels very crowded because the only common areas are the lounge, top outdoor deck, and dining room. There is no choice of dining times; everyone is expected to show up for lunch and supper at the same time.

2) The Duoro River valley is a farming area with little variety to offer tourists.

The scenery is mostly vineyards, and olive or almond orchards. There aren't a lot of places of historical interest to visit except for cathedrals. You will get very tired of seeing old churches, tourist shopping streets, and wineries.
