Uniworld Boutique River Cruises is introducing a new ship in Portugal next year, the 128-passenger Duoro Spirit, which will replace the 126-passenger Duoro Queen on Uniworld’s Portugal, Spain and Duoro River Valley itinerary.
All the staterooms and suites onboard the Duoro Spirit will have French balconies, hotel beds with fine linens, built-in closets, flat-screen satellite televisions, and complimentary bottled water; each bathroom will be stocked with L’Occitane body products and waffle bathrobes.
The Douro Spirit’s common areas will include a main lounge with full-service bar and dance floor, sun deck with Jacuzzi and a small swimming pool, a restaurant with open seating, fitness room, massage room, beauty salon, and a boutique.
The itinerary includes three nights in Lisbon in a deluxe hotel, and a seven-night cruise from Porto, Portugal to Salamanca, Spain.
Prices start from $2,999 per person, not including airfare, and include all meals with complimentary wine, beer, and soft drinks served with dinner onboard; ten shore excursions by English-speaking local guides; and transfers on arrival and departure days.
There will be 24 departures on the Duoro Spirit next year between April 28 and Oct. 27.
