Cruised on the river Douro and admired the beautiful city of Porto on one side and the port cellars on the other. The cruise takes you far enough to see the 6 bridges that span the river. Very nice

It won't spoil your enjoyment as you are on a river rather than out on the ocean....so no waves to worry about. Have a lovely voyage, Sue.
