On Friday 19th April 2019, Emerald Waterways welcomes Jane McDonald aboard Emerald Radiance for a luxurious sailing on The Douro.

The episode of Bafta award-winning show ‘Cruising with Jane McDonald’ sees the singer and presenter explore a host of Portuguese highlights in a sailing aboard the 112 guest Emerald Radiance sailing from Porto and visiting Salamanca in Spain, then sailing back to Porto before heading off for a stay in the southern capital of Lisbon. 
During the trip, Jane heads off for a tasting tour of Porto’s famous port cellars, visits the imposing Casa De Mateus (Mateus Palace) in Vila Real, tries her hand at tile painting and takes a rail journey to Lisbon to a factory making traditional Portuguese custard tarts (pastel de nata).

Guests can explore the same itinerary as Jane on our eight day ‘Secrets of the Douro’ river cruise, which starts from just £1,645 per person (based on travelling 7th November 2020).
