Cruise along the Douro in Portugal aboard MS Infante Don Henrique, MS Gil Eanes Premium, MS Amalia Rodrigues Premium and the brand-new, premium-class MS Miguel Torga. Guests can delight in these ships’ lounges with picture windows, large sundecks with lounge chairs, sumptuous French gastronomy in the dining rooms, and innovative staterooms—some beds face the window, so the first thing you see in the morning is the sparkling river. And all while discovering why the enchanting Douro Valley has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site.
