MS Gil Eanes 4 Star 4 Star

The brand new MS Gil Eanes was launched in April 2015 and joins another three river vessels that already sail on Portugal's Douro River. The Gil Eanes is slightly larger than the existing ships with slightly fewer and more spacious cabins. The ship offers guests a tranquil atmosphere in which to relax and enjoy the picturesque panoramas of the region. Accommodation is located over 3 decks and all cabins are located above the water line. On-board amenities include a lounge with large picture windows, restaurant, library corner, gift shop and sun deck. All meals are included with a buffet breakfast and a 3 course set menu for lunch and dinner. The excellent cuisine has a strong French influence as well as local specialities. 

Location

Embarkation and disembarkation at Quebrantoes Quay (Vila Nova de Gaia) in central Porto.
