Review of MS Douro Cruiser

Launched in 2005, MS Douro Cruiser is a modern and comfortable riverboat (same-designed as Douro Queen / sistership) with passenger capacity 130 guests accommodated in 65 tastefully furnished staterooms. Itineraries are in Portugal exclusively (on Douro River) with roundtrip departures from homeport Oporto. The vessel is owned by the Portuguese family company Mystic Invest via the subsidiary Mystic Cruises (locally branded as "Douro Azul" / travel company) and exclusively chartered by the company's German brand "Nicko Cruises".

This ship features a cozy Panorama Restaurant serving international dishes, spacious Sun Deck with swimming pool, deck chairs, tables and sunshade awnings. Other onboard facilities include Panorama Bar Lounge, lift (between lower and upper decks), stair lift (upper to sun decks). The main onboard language is German.
