Douro Queen

A relaxing and stylish ship

Aboard the newly refurbished Douro Queen you can relax by the pool on the sun deck, or in the stylish bar as you cruise the length of the River Douro.


About the ship

Douro Queen provides a taste of floating luxury on the River Douro. On the sun deck you'll find a pool and plenty of sunloungers, while on the lower decks you can make yourself at home in the panorama lounge and bar, and the restaurant.

The restaurant serves international cuisine with meals served at one leisurely sitting. You can enjoy sumptuous four-course dinners, as well as delicious buffet-style breakfasts and lunches. During your cruise there will also be entertainment local to the region through which you are cruising, such as Portuguese folk music.

All 65 cabins are outside facing. Cabins on the upper deck have a balcony, while those on the main deck have large picture windows. All cabins are en suite and have twin or double beds, as well as a television, hairdryer and safe.

There is a lift, plus an escalator from the upper deck to the sun deck.
