Review of MS Douro Spirit

MS Douro Spirit was launched in 2011 and offers roundtrip Porto itineraries on Douro River in Portugal. The riverboat is owned by the Portugese travel company Douro Azul and often chartered by the Vantage Deluxe World Travel company.

The ship carries up to 130 passengers in 65 cabins that span on two of the four ship decks - Main and Upper. All staterooms feature views to the outside via stylish French balconies with sliding-glass doors. There are a total of 62 standard cabins (measuring between 14-15 m2 / 150-161 ft2). One Junior Suite (sized 21 m2 /226 ft2) and two Suites (sized 22 m2 / 237 ft2) are the largest accommodations. Suites are with bathtub/shower configuration, while all other cabins are with a WC-shower setup. With the exceptions of all 7 cabins (with not-convertible queen beds), all other rooms are with 2 twin beds converting to a double.

On Lower Deck are located the spa, gym and dining room restaurant (named Floating Garden), which pampers with Continental cuisine and local dishes. Meals are served in a single seating, and passengers are able to choose where and with whom to sit. Breakfast and lunch are buffet-style, while dinner is a combination of buffet items and waiter service. Wine, beer and soda are served free with dinner. Bottled water is provided for free in each cabin (daily), but there is a charge when it is ordered at the bar.

The Main Deck has the riverboat's reception and concierge desk. Also there is the bar and lounge area, where are hosted lectures, port talks, dancing, live music and dance performances.

The highest, Sun Deck, is great for its panoramic views of passing sights. It is also where the wheelhouse and the swimming pool are located.  Free Wi-Fi is available throughout, including in all cabins.
