Just Back: Villages and Vintages, cruising the Duoro
We are just back from the 9/25 sailing. Overall it was a wonderful trip -- there were only 29 guests on the ship and the group along with the crew made the trip fun. The service was top notch. They are working out the kinks with this trip in terms of excursions/timing/spacing, etc. The last two days are extremely active (which we liked - we hiked and biked) being off ship all day (more or less) but the up front is not at all - it leaves a lot of things squeezed into the last 2 days that would have been nicer to have spaced out. The ship is gorgeous - do wish there was at least a treadmill or bike on board (sentiment shared by many others with us). We really enjoyed this region of Portugal. It is stunning and the wine and port are delicious.
