From the Vantage website: Follow the path of one of Europe's loveliest river valleys on this popular voyage of discovery in the land where the Age of Discovery began. The Douro River, rising in Spain and reaching the Atlantic Ocean in Oporto, has created the spectacular Douro River Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site! Literally “River of Gold,” the Douro was unnavigable until the construction of a series of dams in the 1960s tamed its dangerous rapids. On this beautiful river cruise, you'll navigate the vineyard-draped Douro aboard our privately chartered ship, ms Douro Cruiser, gliding past graceful terraced vineyards … narrow canyons … and bucolic villages. Bracketing your cruise are hotel stays in vibrant Lisbon and the seaside resort of Cascais, where you’ll encounter the Portuguese people’s close ties to the sea. In Portugal, you’ll also find a gourmand’s paradise of food and wine, served up to you in a number of tantalizing venues—from a 14th-century monastery to the delicious cuisine you’ll savor aboard ship.
