MS Douro Elegance from Riviera Travel

MS Douro Elegance Overview

MS Douro Elegance Overview

New for 2017, the magnificent five-star MS Douro Elegance is the result of months of painstaking research carried out by Riviera in conjunction with their Portuguese shipping partners. Constructed with the latest technology and a strong environmental ethic in mind, the MS Douro Elegance maintains a classic, refined elegance reminiscent of days-gone-by. Accommodating a mere 126 guests in the most exquisite of surroundings, the ship’s spectacular design and high specification ensures this vessel feels exceptionally light and airy. The generous ratio of 3:1 guests per crew member ensures a first-class personal service plus the friendly ‘small ship’ feel so beloved of Riviera Travel cruise regulars.
