Renowned for its culture, architecture, scenery, cuisine, and Port wine, Portugal is a must-see destination, and there is no better way to discover its heart than from the Douro River! Named after the Portuguese word for “golden,” the Douro River glitters across Europe’s Iberian Peninsula. View breathtaking panoramic beauty, as you sail past charming villages, terraced vineyards, and historic landmarks. Stop to explore the sights along the way, sipping wine amidst sun-kissed vineyards, tasting the flavors of local cuisine, and discovering rich culture and colorful cities.

A Douro River cruise provides active daily exploration balanced with leisure time on board as you float along on the elegant MS Emerald Radiance.
