Immerse in the Beautiful Douro

Scenic Azure was built for the Douro, its compact size allowing seamless passage on this beloved Portuguese waterway and its many wonderful destinations. The Douro is home to several locks, including the deepest river gate in Europe, which allow river cruise ships to pass down the length of the river safely, rising to several hundred metres above sea level. Scenic Azure has been designed specifically to navigate this part of the world and pass through these huge locks.
