Global Morning News – Porto River Cruise

Posted on: June 18, 2024

I am having an amazing time in Portugal. The weather has been perfect and we have walked non stop everywhere.

River cruises on the Douro River are incredibly popular, which is why I'm taking a day trip. Reservations fill up fast and require booking far in advance. The Douro stands apart from other European rivers with its soaring cliffs and narrow channels, so ships are smaller and accommodate fewer passengers, further emphasizing the need to book ahead.

Let's see if there are any special offers out there - Yay, I found one!
