Review of MS Douro Serenity

MS Douro Serenity is a new-design, top-luxury river cruise ship (inaugurated in 2017 together with Douro Elegance). Itineraies on River Douro are with roundtrip Oporto departures visiting ports in Portugal and Spain. The riverboat is owned by the Portugese travel company Douro Azul and exclusively chartered by the UK travel company Riviera Travel.

Like the sister-ship Eelgance, the 5-star Serenity accommodates up to 126 passengers on 3 decks. This means that the onboard atmosphere is especially intimate and the attentive staff can assure guests receive superb service with 3:1 passenger-crew ratio. The ship is equipped with a spacious and stylish Bar Lounge for great panoramic views, so that cruisers can get the most from the passing riverside scenery. The ship also features a top-deck (outdoor) swimming pool, as well as a wonderful Spa on the Main deck for relaxing and special treatments. A small fitness room is located on the Lower deck.

The main restaurant on Douro Serenity is situated on the Main deck. It offers tables for 4 to 8 people in one open-seating dining arrangement. Passengers enjoy cold and hot buffet breakfasts, tasty lunches, and sumptuous 4-course dinners. Dining includes International, Mediterranean and Portuguese cuisine specialties. An early riser's breakfast is offered at the lounge.
