From the small Spanish port town of Vega de Terrón to the historical Portuguese city of Porto where the Douro empties into the Atlantic Ocean; the Emerald Radiance explores almost every inch of this most enchanting of rivers. The wonderful cities, towns and villages which dot the banks of the Douro region provide wonderful stops along the journey, introducing ancient cultures and wine-making secrets.
Our Emerald Radiance cruise calendar can help you identify the perfect time to cruise the Douro. Thanks to the kind climates of Portugal, the Douro benefits from a lengthy cruise season, with regular cruises departing between April and October. This grants you significant freedom to select the perfect cruise to suit your holidaying tastes or to mark a special occasion.
Clearly listing the wonderful port stops along the route, the Emerald Radiance cruise calendar is the perfect tool for effectively planning a dream trip atop the wonderful Douro. The charming ports of Régua, Pinhao and Pocinho all provide delightful insights into the Douro region, flanked by seemingly endless vineyards, all producing the nation’s favourite port wines.
The eight day cruises with optional three-day extension to the Portuguese capital Lisbon have been lovingly crafted to provide authentic, enjoyable and hugely rewarding experiences when cruising the river Douro.
