We recently had a 7 night cruise on Douro Prince, which takes less than 40 passengers. The boat is beautiful with lots of highly polished wood and gleaming brass and tasteful soft furnishings. The cabins are compact but very comfortable with plenty of storage space. The crew are very attentive and professional and nothing is too much trouble. The food on board was excellent, breakfast and lunches are buffets and dinners are served, the quality and choice is first class.
We opted for an upper deck cabin as they are larger than the balcony cabins although ours was at the rear of the boat and was considerably smaller than the others on that deck. The cruise was well organised, with a number of very good excursions, with the exception of the day trip to Salamanca which was over-priced at 85 euros per person and badly organised. We were taken to a hotel where we were to return for lunch but then had the rest of the morning to ourselves, around 2 hours. Lunch was not good at all, and was, somewhat incongruously, accompanied by a flamenco show which was ok until they struck up a 'let's all join in' Viva Espana - we couldn't believe it - this was Spain of the 1960's. In the afternoon we had a city tour with an excellent guide, although it would have been far better to have had the tour in the morning and be left to our own devices for lunch as there are plenty of nice looking restaurants in the city, and then time to do our own thing in the afternoon. That apart, we would thoroughly recommend the Douro Prince.
