Launched in 2017/2018, magnificent sister ships Douro Elegance and Douro Splendour offer cruises along Portugal’s most famous river, the Douro.

The ships accommodate just 126 guests in the most exquisite of surroundings.  The generous ratio of 3:1 guests per crew member ensures a first-class personal service, plus the spectacular design and high specification ensures these vessels feel exceptionally light and airy and are without doubt two of the most exceptional ships afloat on any European river.

All three air-conditioned accommodation decks are connected by a lift. Relax in the sumptuously furnished lounge and well-stocked bar and enjoy the stunning views from the magnificent panoramic windows. The chic restaurant offers tables that seat just four to eight and there are ‘open dining’ arrangements giving guests the freedom to sit wherever and with whoever they wish. Breakfast is a hot and cold buffet, lunch is another deliciously fine array and the culinary highlight of the day is the superb four-course dinner of international cuisine. Complimentary tea and coffee is always available and there is a small boutique stocking a selection of essentials and souvenirs. For a little extra indulgence why not book in for a special treatment in the ship’s Spa, or for something a little more energetic there is a small fitness room. The magnificent and spacious Sun Deck offers stunning 360 degree views and there is the benefit of a fantastic outdoor swimming pool.

Most cabins feature floor-to-ceiling windows to take advantage of the stunning river scenery. Enjoy the state of the art amenities with air conditioning, flat-screen satellite televisions, hair dryer, safe and telephone.
