We are delighted to announce River Cruises along the Douro River, Portugal for 2021.

Book Soon – Maximum 6 dialysis patients per cruise

The best way to explore Portugal and Spain is on a Douro River cruise. Incredible scenery and culture is complimented by the comfortable, convenient, and gourmet on-board experience.

The Douro Valley is home to delicious treasures and will take you along the Port wine route. You will admire this incredible terraced vineyard which extends over a hundred kilometres along the Douro to the Spanish border. Be carried away by the charm of the Mediterranean countries. From Portugal to Spain, you will visit Porto, a lively and fascinating city where you can taste its famous wine, or Guimarães, the beating heart of Portugal with a remarkable history that gives it today all its charm. CroisiEurope will guide you throughout this journey through the unique landscapes of the Douro but also cities with a rich heritage such as Lamego, Salamanca or Vila Real.

Your ship, the MS Gil Eanes carries only 132 guests and offers splendid panoramic windows.  Its elegant taupe, bronze and white tones combine perfectly with the blue shades that conjure up Portuguese tilework.  The Upper and Mid deck cabins have large picture windows and French balconies.  The generous windows on the Main Deck provide great views from the privacy of your cabin.  All meals are served in the Main Deck restaurant and onboard fun, music and dancing happens in the lounge and bar on the Mid Deck.  An outdoor area is found near the bow and the sun deck has a pool and sun loungers perfect for relaxing.
