MS Douro Elegance Cruise Ship

Overview

Combining luxury and elegance with sustainability and more than a nod to environmental principles, MS Douro Elegance is a five-star river cruiser offering the voyage of a lifetime. Enjoy the space and amenities of a boutique hotel with a vessel carefully constructed to navigate the unique features of the Douro, including the river’s five locks. Low passenger numbers don’t mean a compromise on space and features, with a light and airy environment and warm personal service. Enjoy the views from the sumptuous lounge and bar, relax and unwind in the spa and wellness suite, or take a dip in the magnificent Sun Deck pool.

MS Douro Elegance FAQs

Find answers to some of the most common questions about river cruising here.

Can I use a wheelchair on board the ship?

Unfortunately, the specific compact design of MS Douro Elegance means it’s not possible to use wheelchairs anywhere on the ship. However, there is room for Zimmer frames and Rollators. If you have any mobility concerns about your cruise ship or the shore excursions, then discuss these with one of our friendly booking team.

Do I need a visa?

You will need a visa to visit many countries on our itineraries. If you’re unsure about any of the requirements, then our reservations team will be able to provide you with the latest information. It is the responsibility of passengers to ensure they have the appropriate documentation before they travel.

What is the average age range of cruise passengers?
