We are very pleased to offer once again this exciting itinerary to the Douro River and the great maritime city of Lisbon. This unique itinerary will delight river cruisers and those who love to explore the Old World. Our journey takes us to Lisbon, the city where most of the Portuguese expeditions in the Age of Discovery started their voyage. We will spend three days here with many opportunities to explore its rich heritage and surrounding towns including Sintra. We begin our cruise in Porto for seven nights of discovery up the mighty Douro River, a major waterway of the Iberian Peninsula. The banks of the Douro are peppered with villages and vineyards that are uniquely Portuguese. We also take the time to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Salamanca, Spain, a gem of beauty and history, boasting the world’s third oldest University. Our cruise ship the ms AmaDouro has  debuted this year, bringing the distinctive standard of excellence of AmaWaterways. Accommodating only 102 passengers with balconies in the majority of its spacious staterooms, we will most certainly cruise in style.
