The itinerary is subject to modification due to water levels, or other uncontrollable factors. Every effort will be made to operate programs as planned, but changes may still be necessary throughout the cruise. This day-to-day schedule is subject to change. Your final day-to-day schedule will be provided onboard on the first day of your cruise.

 

Porto, Portugal Douro gay cruise

Day 1 - Porto, Portugal (Embark)

Arrive in Porto, the port city at the mouth of the Douro. Unpack, relax and enjoy your first evening in Porto. Birthplace of Henry the Navigator (who launched Portugal’s voyages of exploration) and longtime hub of the Port wine trade, Porto combines well- preserved historic buildings with cutting-edge architecture and a booming cultural revival.

 

Porto, Portugal gay cruise

Day 2 - Porto / Entre-os-Rios

There’s much more to Portugal’s second city than its eponymous fortified wine—historic architecture, cutting-edge design, fabulous food and wine, and a hip, laid-back vibe. Discover its many charms with your choice of distinctively different tours today. Portugal’s second city (after Lisbon), Porto gave its name to the nation’s most famous export, Port wine, and to the nation itself. The city is a fascinating combination of historic buildings and cutting-edge architecture, tradition and vivacious modernity. You must choose between two distinctive—and distinctively Portuguese—ways to explore Porto. Your ship sets sail after your tour, cruising up the Douro toward Porto Antigo.

Featured Excursions Choice:
• Porto city tour, or
• "Do as the Locals Do" Porto walking tour

In the evening, a special Captain’s Welcome Reception and Dinner will be prepared for you.

 

Douro Valley gay cruise

Day 3 - Entre-os-Rios / Re´gua / Pinhão

As you cruise along the river today, take note of the little chapels you see along the banks. Though the river is slow and calm now that it has been tamed by dams, it was once extremely hazardous. These tiny chapels mark spots where entire rabelo boat crews perished attempting to get their cargo of Port wine to Porto. Today we learn about wine, which has been cultivated in the Douro River Valley since ancient Roman times. Get a crash course on the history of Port during your visit to the Douro Museum.

Featured Excursions:
• Douro Museum
• Lunch at a local quinta

Day 4 - Pinhão / Vega de Terrón

Feel the centuries fall away as your ship winds its way through the pristine, dramatic, UNESCO-protected landscapes of the Douro River Valley. Head ashore for a choice of excursions, a tasting at a prestigious port wine estate or a vineyard hike with a wine tasting at a local quinta.

Featured Excursions Choice:
• Quinta do Seixo guided tour with tasting, or
• Vineyard hike and wine tasting at a local quinta

 

Douro river gay cruise - Salamanca, Spain

Day 5 - Vega de Terrón (Salamanca, Spain), Barca d’Alva

What adventures await you in Spain today? The ship docks near the Spanish border today, where you may head across the country to the historic university town of Salamanca—the “Golden City”—famous for its sand-colored buildings and abundance of churches.

Featured Excursion:
• Salamanca - the Golden City and Spain's oldest university

 

Douro river gay cruise - Castelo Rodrigo

Day 6 - Barca d’Alva / Régua

A tiny village surrounded by mountains, Barca d’Alva is your base for today's adventures. Go medieval today at Castelo Rodrigo, both the name of a hilltop castle as well as the village that surrounds it. It has been singled out as one of Portugal’s 12 historic villages for its medieval beauty. The view from the top is incredible and the village is a charming place to ramble, relax and replenish. Or, if you wish, you can also lace up your hiking boots and unleash your inner Indiana Jones with an up-close gander at some prehistoric carvings during a visit to Portugal’s first archaeological park, Foz Côa.

Featured Excursions Choice:
• Castelo Rodrigo, or
• Archaeological Park of the Co^a Valley

 

Douro gay cruise - Guimaraes

Day 7 - Re´gua (Guimarães), Porto

Guimarães or Porto? That’s the question of the day today (you really can’t go wrong either way). Guimarães is the town where Portugal was born and its well-preserved architecture and stylish young residents make it a pleasure to visit. Or opt to explore one of Porto’s oldest neighborhoods, picturesque Ribeira, considered the soul of the city. A tough choice awaits you today: Do you venture off to historic Guimarães, Portugal’s first capital, or do you stay in Porto and explore the Ribeira district on foot?

Featured Excursion Choice:
• Guimarães city tour, or
• Ribeira walking tour

In the evening, a special Captain’s Farewell Reception and Dinner will be prepared for you.

 

Douro gay cruise - Ribeira Porto

Day 8 - Porto (Disembark)

You’ve experienced the best of Portugal, Spain and the pristine Douro River, but now the journey comes to a close and it’s time to disembark the ship. You will be transferred to Porto Airport for your flight home. Your Uniworld adventure may be over, but we know you’ll enjoy the memories you’ve made for years to come.
