Review of MS Douro Princess

MS Douro Princess is a stylish river cruise ship operating on regular Porto roundtrip itineraries on Douro River in Portugal. The riverboat is owned by the Portugese travel company Douro Azul and often chartered by the UK travel company Saga Holidays.

The ship's amenities include a restaurant, lounge bar with large panoramic windows, partially-shaded sun deck, all of which afford beautiful views of the passing riverside scenery. The bar offers a wide range of non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks. Passengers can just sign for the beverages and settle their bar bill at the end of cruise. Coffee and tea is offered free of charge throughout the day at the lounge. The restaurant is also located on the Douro Deck. The outdoor sun deck provides alfresco relaxation on cozy loungers.

Douro Princess staterooms are spread over 2 decks. They are all air conditioned, compact, with satellite television, twin beds, hairdryer, en-suite bathroom with shower. Upper Deck cabins are with large windows. Main Deck cabins are slightly larger, but with smaller windows.

The partially-shaded sun deck is the ship's best vantage point to enjoy the beautiful views from the comfortable sun loungers. All passengers eat in one sitting in the window-lined dining room. Breakfasts and lunches are buffet-style, while dinners are waiter-served 4-course affairs.

In the evenings, local performers come aboard for a live dance and singing entertainment. Wi-Fi internet access is available for extra charge.
