AmaWaterways extends 2022 and 2023 Portugal season

AmaWaterways has extended its 2022 and 2023 river cruising season in Portugal, with 14 additional sailings round trip from Porto on board AmaDouro. 

Cruises are now available between November 12 and December 31, giving guests the opportunity to experience the destination in winter.

The extension includes additional dates for AmaWaterways’ Enticing Douro itinerary, a seven-night roundtrip from Porto along the Douro River Valley. The itinerary includes small group shore excursions such as a guided hike of Porto and a visit to the Unesco World Heritage-listed city of Salamanca.

Those wishing to extend their time in the destination can add three nights in Lisbon pre-cruise, including a tour of the city and a morning excursion to the mountain village of Serra de Sintra.

To celebrate the extended season, AmaWaterways is running a More to Love sale. Guests who book their Portugal sailings for this year by June 30, 2022, will receive a comprehensive package including a seven-night river cruise in a French balcony stateroom, flights, transfers and Travel Waiver Plus starting at £3,299 per person.

The line’s co-founder and executive vice president Kristin Karst said: “Full of rich culture, inspiring architecture and enticing cuisine, our Portugal sailings have always been extremely popular.

“This demand inspired us to extend both our 2022 and 2023 season through until the end of December, giving guests another reason to travel and experience all that Portugal has to offer during this special time of year.

“The extended season opens up a new opportunity for our travel partners to reserve groups to visit Portugal’s festive Christmas markets, delightful vineyards and historic sites during this quieter period.”
