Channel 5’s ‘Cruising with Jane McDonald’ joins Emerald Waterways for Portugal sailing 

River cruise specialist Emerald Waterways takes centre stage when it welcomes Jane McDonald aboard for a luxurious sailing on The Douro.

The April 19th 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 to Salamanca in Spain and 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).

David Winterton, head of marketing UK & global brand curator, Emerald Waterways, commented: “It’s great that Channel 5 and Jane have chosen Emerald Waterways for this latest show. We were delighted to host Jane and the team. Everyone loved having her on board and we are looking forward to sharing her cruise with the nation.”

’Emerald Waterway’s eight day ‘Secrets of the Douro’ river cruise starts from just £1,595 per person (based on travelling 7 November 2020).
