      Welcome Aboard

      Purpose-built by our long-time partner Scylla for cruising to historic quintas and picturesque villages along Portugal’s golden Douro River from coastal Porto to the Spanish border, our newly constructed, 80-meter (263-foot) custom Douro riverboat debuts in 2020 with spacious accommodations for just 84 guests, featuring 12 300-sq.-ft. Tauck Suites among her five cabin categories. Guest amenities inside her lush 300-square-foot, Category 5 Tauck Suites include brocade upholstery, roomy walk-in closets with built-in drawers, spacious bathrooms with separate showers, and two French balconies with floor-to-ceiling windows that open to the idyllic riverscapes of Portugal's golden Douro River Valley – a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and one of the oldest wine-producing regions in the world. She also sports 20 roomy 225-square-foot cabins in Categories 3 and 4, and six 200-square-foot Category 2 cabins, similarly furnished. Four 150-square-foot Category 1 cabins are cozy and comfortable, and are similar in décor and style to our larger suites. Most have floor-to-ceiling windows with real French balconies that open on to a balcony in the fresh air; all have in-room movies, minibar, adjustable heating and cooling, private bathroom and shower with pampering toiletries. In addition to our main dining room, The Compass Rose, the ship also features Arthur's, a second dining venue offering casual fare.


      Indescribable Comfort

      We couldn’t find just the right words to describe the sumptuous bedding and amenities we custom ordered for your in-cabin cruising comfort... 400-thread-count satin bed linens made from the finest combed cotton... puffy white duvets and pillows of very fine mako cotton, with a 90% down filling... 100% cotton blankets, temperature balancing and so soft to the skin... and thick pillow-top mattresses that lull you to sleep... along with the Essentials Line of Molton Brown bath products, exclusive to Tauck... absorbent terry cloth robes and fluffy towels... hair dryers... but we do know they are key for waking up refreshed and relaxed for your travelling pleasure.
