Timeless elegance spills from the decks of the AmaVida, a ship that sails Portugal and Spain’s Douro River. Rust and gold color schemes bring together the Douro’s breathtaking sunsets and a sepia hue that conjures timeworn snapshots of the world’s oldest demarcated wine region. Most cabins feature balconies from which to enjoy views of terraced vineyards, as well as Entertainment-On-Demand, climate-controlled air conditioning, and an in-room safe.

AmaVida’s passionate chefs will treat you to exquisite, locally sourced cuisine paired with unlimited local wine – and the region’s signature Port – as well as beer and soft drinks with lunch and dinner in the Main Restaurant every night. Enjoy a special, multi-course meal at The Chef’s Table, and spend afternoons relaxing in the Main Lounge, where drinks and tapas are served throughout the day. Dive into the captivating beauty of the Douro River, savor the flavors of Portugal, and sail in comfort and luxury onboard the AmaVida.
