Wind your way through Portugal
A CRUISE on Portugal’s vineyard-lined Douro River on a new five-star ship for European river cruiseline Riviera Travel forms the centrepiece of a fly, cruise and tour package from Australia to Portugal in April next year.
Riviera Travel – new to the Australian cruise market – has partnered with local holiday packager Cruise Traveller to create an exclusive 20-night fly/cruise/tour package.
The journey showcases the vineyards, cobblestone streets, baroque churches, ancient forts, terraced hills, medieval villages and the world’s oldest wine region, the Douro Valley, that have made Portugal an increasingly popular destination.
Cruise Traveller’s new 20-night Portugal Perfection package combines a six-night overland tour of Portugal with Back Roads, hotel stays in Lisbon and Porto and a seven-night Douro River cruise aboard Riviera Travel’s new 126-guest river ship Douro Elegance.
Eight complementary tours to vineyards, port cellars and more are included while on the ship. Travellers leave Australia on April 16 and the itinerary begins in Lisbon with two nights’ accommodation.
