Trip Operator:

Your LGBT+, all-inclusive, guaranteed full ship charter adventure begins in Lisbon, the stunning capital city of Portugal and one of the most charismatic and vibrant cities in Europe. You’ll spend two days exploring the historic sites of this scenic and romantic city built on the sea. Your visit also includes the beautiful medieval city of Óbidos and lunch at a wine estate.

Your cruise journeys from the picturesque Roman city of Porto, the home of Port wine. Portugal’s once-wild river Douro has been tamed by locks into a series of finger lakes, adding greatly to the valley’s ambience. Leaving behind the Atlantic influenced greenery of the coast, and you are soon immersed in a Mediterranean land of olives, vines, and picturesque, medieval hilltop villages. Our destination is the higher reaches of the valley from where we visit Salamanca – home of one of Europe’s oldest universities, two of its finest cathedrals, Spain’s finest city square and even the Inquisition!

On board the gorgeous Douro Splendor, you will be pampered by a crew of forty ensuring first-class personal service. Plus a friendly ‘small ship’ feel enables the ever-attentive crew to take care of all those little things – leaving you to simply sit back, relax and enjoy every minute of your sensational all-LGBT+ river cruise experience.

This cruise vacation has it all – historic sites, charming villages, world-class port wines and cuisine and more!
