CroisiEurope offers cruises on the Douro River. There are nine different itineraries listed on the company’s website, but several of them have only one sailing. In this article, we’re going to look at two itineraries that have several dates available – 1) Porto, the Douro Valley (Portugal), and Salamanca (Spain), the 6-day cruise; and 2) Portugal to Spain – Porto, the Douro Valley (Portugal), and Salamanca (Spain), the 8-day cruise.
Porto, the Douro Valley (Portugal), and Salamanca (Spain)
This 6-day cruise between Porto and Salamanca is round trip from Porto. The average length for a Douro River cruise is about eight days, so this six-day itinerary is shorter than most. However, there are still quite a few stops along the way. Let’s take a look at the destinations you’ll visit.
On the first day of the cruise, you’ll board the MS Fernao de Magalhaes in Porto. This ship carries up to 142 passengers and is smaller than other ships in CroisiEurope’s fleet. But ships on the Douro tend to be smaller for all cruise lines when compared to vessels on other waterways in Europe.
