    The Douro? What Do You Think?

    Thanks to all of you. Jazz, I am not a hiker and that looks pretty active. Amy, I called AMA today...…this is a very popular itinerary and there were slim to none choices on the time frame I want to go. I want to sail in April (for various reasons). I am going to check a couple of other companies and see what I can find.

    Hi, thanks for the reply. I will (hopefully) have some time later today to give AMA a call. The photos on line of the area look lovely!

    Vantage Douro Cruise Review--Finally

    I also want to thank you for the review and happy to see you are doing well. I am seriously considering this itinerary and the pictures are wonderful....I didn't realize it is a bus ride to get to the excursions but it looks like the scenery is awesome. I have never visited these places before and I am thinking about going in April 2019 with AMA Waterways.

    Silversea Water Cooler: Welcome! Part Five

    Hi friends...…..wow, that bread looks FANTASTIC Jeff Question for you (all of you)……..I am looking at the Douro River. I have never been to Portugal and the places looks beautiful. and I love a River Cruise. Do you know if this area is usually having to take a bus for each excursion? I am going to call AMA tomorrow as that who I used for my first River Cruise back in 2016 and really loved them. Any information from all you world travelers would be welcomed!

    The Douro? What Do You Think?

    Hmmmm……..I will call them and see what they say and will post back for you (and for anyone else who is interested). And I will google a few of the places listed on the itinerary.

    The Douro? What Do You Think?

    Hi Amy, oh......I didn't know that......a bus ride for every stop? I am going to see about calling AMA tomorrow and see what information I can get about it. I don't want to wait until the fall to go
  13. Hi folks, I am researching (again) River Cruises for the spring and never seriously looked at The Douro. AMA has a new Riverboat that sails PORTO to PORTO......I sailed with them once before and LOVED IT...….I know the usual choices are the Danube, Rhine, Seine, etc......seems The Douro is not as well known...….any thoughts from those you who have sailed this River? I have not been to Portugal before and looks interesting. Any experiences ya'll want to share would be appreciated! Oh, I am looking at April 2019 and really need to decide as I know River Cruises book up quickly!

    Turning 60

    I turned 60 this year too......back in March. I was supposed to have gone on a cruise but I ended up going to Disneyworld with a longtime friend for a long weekend instead. I took a 2 week cruise to Italy in July so that was sort of a my belated birthday cruise from me to me. Life got in the way of the original plan...….had to have a kidney stone removed and was home from work for the week I should have been on a ship.

    where did the social groups go?

    Hi Suzanne, whatever is easiest...…..it is hard enough to learn this new format. Not sure if one of the moderators puts it in or not.....
