Discover the Douro on the launch of AmaVida this Spring

Debuting in the spring of 2013 the AmaVida will bring AmaWaterways’ distinctive standard of excellence to the Douro River in Portugal. This grand 108-passenger vessel features balconies in the majority of its spacious staterooms and suites, which range up to 323 sq. ft.Guests on the AmaVida will enjoy fine dining in the main dining room, plus al fresco dining for up to 32 guests. The AmaVida also features a Sun Deck swimming pool; fitness centre and spa; complimentary in-stateroom Internet access on a 42″ flat-screen and ship-wide Wi-Fi.


The Douro is one of Europe’s most pure and unspoiled rivers, with deep cleft gorges, lush vineyards, and sleepy fishing villages. AmaWaterways’ 7 night `Enticing Douro’ departs between March and November 2013 and offers a round trip from Porto. Daily port calls include the route to picturesque towns and villages and places of interest, enabling guests to immerse themselves in local culture and traditions. The week-long sailing includes all meals, wine, beer and soft drinks with dinner, daily hosted excursions and free wi-fi.
