“MS Douro Serenity”
Brian & Merilyn - WA, Australia Jul 2018
The cruise was conducted on the MS Douro Serenity which was built 2017.

The Travelmarvel Tours, staff etc were all excellent. I would advise anyone who is offered the last cabin in the decks ...read more

“Wonderful trip through Spain, Portugal & the beautiful Douro River”

We could not have asked for better weather, ...read more

“Lovely trip of Portugal and Spain”
Jan - VIC, Australia May 2018

“Comfort and convenience.”
Roy - WA, Australia Aug 2017
All went well, and according to plan. Happy with communication and arrangements. Perhaps a little more help in organising free time when docked would be helpful.
