Why cruise on this ship?Custom-designed by our long-time partner Scylla to accommodate no more than 84 guests within an innovative deck plan featuring 12 300-sq. ft. Tauck Suites and 20 225-sq. ft. cabins, this brand-new 80-meter (263-foot) riverboat was specifically built for cruising amidst the historic quintas and picturesque villages along Portugal’s golden Douro River.
Tauck’s “free choice” dining allows you to eat many of your meals when you want and with whom you want. Special occasion dinners are held as group functions, and lunches that are included during group sightseeing excursions are often held in a group setting.
Most meals are included on Tauck journeys. Dining is a delightful and integral part of the Tauck experience – and that is why Tauck selects restaurants that offer a true taste of each region you visit. Some meals are full a la carte, some may be limited a la carte, and some may be from a set menu or buffet.

Kids and teens
There are no dedicated Kids & Teens facilities onboard. However, the bond between children and adults as they experience the world together makes for special memories that last lifetimes. It is for that reason that the line created ‘Tauck Bridges’ – journeys for the whole family to enjoy together. Each of these kid-friendly family oriented journeys has a minimum recommended age rating to encourage comfort and enjoyment for all guests. Tauck Bridges itineraries are not recommended for children under 3 years of age. All children on Tauck journeys must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
