Cruise: Portugal, Spain and the Douro River

Emerald Radiance


Detailed Information

Spend two days in Lisbon before visiting Fatima and Coimbra enroute to Porto where you will board the MS Emerald Radiance, for a private “Washburn-Only” cruise. For seven nights, navigate a path through Portugal and Spain’s enchanting countryside while cruising along the dramatic Douro River. Terraced vineyards rise from the river banks, historic landmarks pepper the distant horizons and charming towns lay hidden in the rural hillsides. The Douro River Valley has been designated as a wine-growing sanctuary for nearly four centuries. Ports of call include Pinhao, Vega de Terron, Salmanca, Pocinho and Regua. This cruise will likely sell out, so don't delay.
