2022 is the year Doris Visits lists river cruising. We managed to get the DOURO menu up just before the SAGA DOURO SPIRIT announcement, thanks to our on-the-ball moderator Steve on the very active and useful SAGA Chat group.
On the 78m long Douro Spirit that holds 130 guests with 30 crew, every cabin has a French balcony so that you can enjoy uninterrupted views of the beautiful landscapes and quaint towns of the Douro Valley on its first Portugal river cruise. The holiday includes a visit to Salamanca in Spain and shows us we have a whole new world of cities to video. On this tiny but welcoming ship, you can head out onto the sun deck where you can take a dip in the pool, indulge in the spa or maintain your fitness in our gym. (Which will hopefully be open if there are no pandemic restrictions – but these are lifting a little). The ship has three decks and one lift and is currently docked in Porto where it is registered. If it has moved you can see where it is on our SAGA ships menu where each ship has a globe tracker and position finder.
Those who travel with SAGA know what makes it special for them. On a Douro Spirit cruise, they can explore the many sides of Portugal and Spain with scenic visits to a string of cities and the quaint towns of the Douro.
In Oporto, explore the port wine production through a tasting in a wine cellar, and channel your inner historian by paying a visit to an impressive 12th-century cathedral. With a visit to Salamanca, find out why this beautiful city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with its famous Spanish Cathedral and golden coloured brick buildings. Whilst there, also discover one of the finest town squares in Spain.
SAGA states that if you need to change your holiday plans for 2022, you can amend a booking at no additional cost if you make your change before March 31, 2022. Please see their page for the small print. SAGA WEBPAGE ON DOURO’s SPAIN CRUISE
