AmaDouro Wiki

AmaDouro is the second of the three AMAwaterways boats (together with sisterships AmaVida and AmaSintra) operating luxury river cruises in Portugal.

The vessel is operated by AMAwaterways' "AmaVoyages" division via a partnership with "Douro Azul" (1993-founded Portuguese cruisetour company).

AmaDouro is a new/modified riverboat design adapted for the specifics of River Douro - one of Iberian Peninsula's biggest rivers. This waterway starts near Duruelo de la Sierra (Spain) and ends at Oporto (Portugal). Famous for its port-wines production, the whole Douro Valley region is designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Douro River scenery is accented by a multitude of vineyard estates extending steeply terraced hillsides in the Upper Douro valley.

Along with its modern look (marine design by CMT Engineering Ltd), AmaDouro features the convenience of onboard mini-helicopter tours. One of the boat's many "green technology" features are the solar panels (installed on the awning's roof photovoltaic panels, covering total area 155 m2 / 1670 ft2) and combined diesel-electric propulsion. A unique experience on AMAwaterways cruise tours in Portugal are the complimentary bike tours. Guests can use the onboard bicycles on all excursions and tours organized in each of the itinerary ports.

The boat's christening ceremony was on April 12, 2019, held in Porto City (Portugal). The naming ceremony was led by godmother Julia Lo Bue-Said (CEO of Advantage Travel Partnership / UK's largest independent travel agent group). The ship's Captain is Pedro Sardo.
