The Douro River winds its way from Spain into Northern Portugal, an area almost lost in time, scattered with quaint villages, working family farms and countless vineyards producing the specialties of the region.
With the success of our cruises between Amsterdam and Budapest and beyond, the Douro is another destination featuring a brand new Emerald Star Ship - Emerald Radiance for 2017. All the luxuries you are used to such as drop down glass balconies, indulgent one bedroom suites, the club pool on the Sun Deck, extensive dining choices and included excursions are all featured for your enjoyment whilst cruising in our award-winning 'Star Ships'.
