Launched in April 2019, AmaDouro joined sister ship AmaVida to become the second AmaWaterways vessel to cruise Portugal’s Douro River. Carrying just 102 guests, golden-hued AmaDouro is the smallest European river cruise ship in the luxury AmaWaterways fleet.
AmaDouro’s river cruise itineraries focus on time spent in port, with short periods of scenic river cruising interspersed with longer days spent soaking up all your destination has to offer. Cruising from Porto, the ship sails a stunning itinerary along the UNESCO World Heritage River Douro, calling at locations dappled with vineyards, rolling hillsides, mountains and vibrant Portuguese locales. AmaDouro makes her surroundings the star of the show, with floor-to-ceiling windows in public spaces, plus step-out balconies in almost all of her staterooms and suites.
With fewer passengers than other ships in the AmaWaterways fleet, AmaDouro offers more personal space in lounge areas and restaurants. Staterooms and suites on the river cruise ship are equally spacious, designed to make the most of every inch of the sleek new ship. What’s more, a crew of 38 delivers impressive service without compromise along the Douro.
Just as on land, dining on a river cruise is a feast for the sense. AmaDouro’s Main Restaurant serves up breakfast, lunch and dinner on the Lisbon Deck. Regional specialities sit on a menu alongside European-inspired classics, with something to suit all tastes at every meal. Guests can expect plenty of opportunities to sample the region’s famous Port wine, too.
The newest AmaWaterways ship in the luxury river cruise fleet doesn’t scrimp on spaces to kick back, relax and take in the ever-changing views. Soak up the rays in the Sun Deck Pool as villages and vineyards pass by and wind-down in the Panorama Lounge after a busy day seeing Portugal’s highlights. Every venue on board AmaDouro features floor-to-ceiling windows for views of your destination at any time of day or night.
Shore excursions on an AmaWaterways sailing showcase every highlight of a destination, but there’s plenty of time to relax once you’re back on board. Soothe away your stresses with a massage in the spa or simply hide away in your stateroom, sipping Port wine on your balcony and watching movies in bed. Bliss!
Join AmaDouro on a weeklong Enticing Douro river cruise itinerary sailing roundtrip from Porto, with the option to add a three-night pre-cruise stay in Lisbon to your holiday. Home to Port wine, Flamenco, lively cities and stretching golden sands, Portugal is a destination that sizzles at any time of year.
