Why cruise on this ship?

The Saga Douro Queen allows you to explore the River Douro in comfort. On the sun deck you'll find a pool and plenty of sun loungers, while on the lower decks you can make yourself at home in the panorama lounge and bar, and the restaurant. The restaurant serves international cuisine with meals served at one leisurely sitting. You can admire the views while enjoying four-course dinners, as well as delicious buffet-style breakfasts and lunches. During your cruise aboard the Douro Queen ship there will also be entertainment local to the region through which you are cruising, such as Portuguese folk music.

Dining

Start the day in the way you mean to go on, with a delicious buffet-style breakfast or a more substantial full English. If you're not out exploring or on an excursion then an enticing buffet-style lunch will be yours to savour, while at dinner you'll have a four-course meal with a choice of main course.

Dining Room

A delicious range of both Portuguese and international flavours are served up in the main dining lounge, where you'll enjoy sumptuous four-course dinners, as well as buffet-style breakfasts and lunches. You'll also enjoy a selection of wine, beer, fruit juice and soft drinks to accompany both lunch and dinner.

Enrichment

The Saga cruise director will always be mingling with guests and making sure everything's running smoothly. They'll no doubt organise a few impromptu games and quizzes too, for those who wish to join in. After dinner the pace remains just as leisurely. If the ship is berthed, you might like to take a stroll along the river bank – it's very easy to come and go as you please. Or if you're staying on board there might be a pianist playing, perhaps music to dance to, and occasionally local performers are invited on board to put on a show.

Explore Ashore

An exciting service led by our on board team of experts, brimming with local knowledge. You’ll find them at the travel desk on your ship, ready to help you get the most out of your time on land.

More than a normal excursion

Of course there will be a varied programme of shore excursions each insightful and fascinating in their own right. But Explore Ashore is much more than that.

Rather than a tour of thousands, let us show you the main sights of your destination on a small‑group excursion. You won’t feel rushed or herded around on the tourist trail. Its far more personal, and memorable too.
