The Douro River is one of the most important waterways of the Iberian Peninsula, originating in north-central Spain's Soria province and extending westward all the way to the coast of Portugal. The MS Amavida ("Love Life" in English) lives up to its name, as it puts you right in the romantic heart of Spain's centuries-old culture. Along the way, you will pass by eye-catching terraces, the historic districts of Madrid, and Salamanca, where you'll see the architectural & cultural influences of Romans, Celts, Muslims, & the Spanish. Delight in the flavors of a delicious wine, fresh from the local vineyards. You'll also spend some time getting to know a couple of Portugal's most significant cultural centers - Lisbon & Porto - where the river flows into the north Atlantic.
