AmaWaterways Christens newest ship sailing on the Douro River

AmaWaterways recently christened one of it’s newest ships for 2019.  The AmaDouro will sail on the Douro River – featured on Portugal and Spain river cruise itineraries.

Often overshadowed by the Rhine and the Danube, Douro river cruises are growing in popularity.

The ship will sail on the Enticing Douro 7 night cruise from Porto back to Porto with an extension in Lisbon.

Rambling vineyards and charming native farms cling to the steep sides of the Douro River Valley, creating an incomparable backdrop to one of Europe’s most unspoiled regions and to Port country— the world’s oldest demarcated wine region. Sail roundtrip from Porto, the beautiful “City of Bridges”; visit Barca d’Alva, the last Portuguese village along the Douro; and marvel at Salamanca, the UNESCO-designated “Golden City.” Taste wines from historic wineries and soak up the genuine beauty of one of Europe’s most unadulterated landscapes.

The spectacular AmaDouro, in 2019.  Like Ama’s other ships, the AmaDouro will feature spacious, elegantly appointed staterooms, most of which will include balconies to take in views of the breathtaking hills and terraced vineyards along the river.

Staterooms will also include Entertainment-On-Demand, featuring free high-speed Internet access, unlimited Wi-Fi, movies, music and English language TV stations; climate-controlled air conditioning; and an in-room safe.

The Panoramic Lounge will be a stylish and inviting space for a drink and nightly entertainment. The ship also features a massage room, fitness room, Sun Deck swimming pool and a gift shop, as well as the culinary delights of the Main Restaurant, where you’ll be able to sample the region’s famous Port wine.
