Portugal’s River of Gold cruise: 10 days from $6295* LIMITED PLACES

Leanne’s pick: Portugal is hot right now, but if you don’t want to paddle (see Emma’s recommendation), then try cruising with Leanne (well, technically they’re not going but they’ll happily send you along).

Several departures have sold out and this cruise is filling fast, so don’t delay. On this 10-day 2-country cruise, you will experience the renaissance of Lisbon, invigorated by trending galleries and restaurants.

Explore two of Iberia’s oldest university towns: Coimbra, Portugal and Salamanca, Spain; roam the port warehouses of Porto; enjoy traditional cuisine, wine and fado singing; cruise the Douro River Valley, the world’s oldest demarcated wine region and a UNESCO Site.

This cruise includes a hotel stay in Lisbon and the added bonus of a visit to Spain.

ADD THIS: Leanne has found a great 2-day extension to Santiago de Compostela. Travel along the scenic coast of Portugal into Spain, with a stop in Braga along the way, and discover the Galician capital of Santiago de Compostela, and its unforgettable Old Town. This extension includes a guided walking tour and ship/hotel transfers.

We’re sailing for 10-days: 12 – 21 August:  cruise starting from $6295* pp

ADD THIS: 21 – 23 August:  Road to Santiago extension from $699pp

Total package cost: $6994* pp (If you need a flight, add from $995* pp inc taxes)
