Douro river cruises

Discover charming Portugal with a cruise along the Douro
The rustic and pastoral landscapes of northern Portugal hint at the country’s history as a powerful seafaring kingdom, which helped to colonise the world from the Far East to America. It’s here, in the northern fringes of the Iberian Peninsula, that you find the Douro River, a spectacular waterway which cuts a course from the Spanish enclave of Duruelo de la Sierra to the mouth of the Atlantic Ocean in Portugal’s captivating second city, Porto.
Take a luxury river cruise on the Douro with Scenic, and you’ll embark on a journey across the breadth of Portugal. Your cruise begins in the ancient city of Porto, and sees you travel up the Douro towards such destinations as Vega de Terron, Régua, Pochinho, Pinhão and Salamanca — uncovering some of the country’s most-esteemed beauty spots and heritage sites along the way. New to the waters of the Douro is Scenic Azure, the latest member to join our fleet of 5-star Space-Ships. Scenic Azure has been custom-built to negotiate the Douro River, providing an intimate and luxurious home-from-home as you explore the many wonders of this timeless passageway.

Perfect for:

  • Explorers: Lisbon, Porto and Salamanca
  • History buffs: Coa Valley Museum, Pochincho and the Douro Museum, Regua
  • Architecture enthusiasts: Ducal Palace, Entre-os-Rios
  • Wine-lovers: Quinta da Aveleda and Portogardens, Giverny

Unforgettable Events on the Waters of the Douro

Scenic offers an outstanding collection of unforgettable Enrich and Freechoice experiences that showcase the colourful and storied heritage of Portugal. These exclusive encounters begin on the first full day of the itinerary. Attend an exclusive Sundowners cocktail event on the manicured lawns of the Douro Museum, and watch as the sun sinks beneath the fruitful vines of Régua’s plentiful vineyards. Tour the Baroque-style town of Lamego, which sits nestled among the terraced slopes of one of the Douro’s most prestigious port wine-producing regions.

Absorb the architectural splendour of Salamanca, whose historic centre is protected by UNESCO on account of its important heritage. Visit the village of Provesende, and wander the narrow cobbled streets with the locals as they proudly introduce to you to their way of life. Or join your fellow guests for an exclusive degustation fine dining experience in the Burmester Cellars of Porto, where you’ll sample the resident port wine and be entertained by traditional Fado musicians.

Scenic Azure — A Luxury Welcome on the Waters of the Douro

Bringing unprecedented luxury to the Douro, we’re proud to introduce Scenic Azure, an all-new 5-star Space-Ship built to safely navigate the course of this celebrated Portuguese waterway.

At 80 metres long, Scenic Azure is smaller than other Space-Ships, and therefore welcomes just 96 guests. This lends Azure a supreme sense of intimacy and relaxation, allowing guests the space they need to unwind in absolute comfort. It also means that most on board suites benefit from the Scenic Sun Lounge balcony system, allowing you to better enjoy the exquisite views and fine Iberian climate.

One of the highlights of Scenic Azure is the Sun Deck, which has been perfectly designed to help you make the most of the Portuguese sun. The Sun Deck features a Vitality Pool, sun loungers and an al fresco dining venue, Riverview Terrace, so you can relax beneath the seasonal sunshine at your leisure.
