First rate honest friendly service, called me back when they said they would and even gave me the time to have a little chat and laugh about our day, wouldn’t go anywhere else thank you Sophie Ellis

Mr Clark / February 2021

Very friendly staff will book again

Your rep Lisa Dixon was exceptional sorting everything out for us and beyond , nothing was too much trouble to find things out as we've never been in a cruise before

Glynis richards / February 2021

I booked a Cruise through Cruise Kings for the very first time (after using a couple of other Cruise companies for years) and was very impressed by the way my booking was handled. I felt valued as a customer and I will be using Cruise Kings again.

MS Douro Elegance From Riviera Travel

We are absolutely thrilled to announce that our highly successful Douro cruise on Portugal’s most spectacular waterway will now be operated on a brand new state of the art vessel, the magnificent five-star MS Douro Elegance. Painstaking research over many months with our highly regarded Portuguese shipping partners, the first luxury ship operator on the Douro, who have been involved in river cruise ship building for over a quarter of a century, has resulted in the creation of a worldclass vessel which is without doubt one of the most exceptional ships afloat on any European river. If cruising is an art, then this ship has truly mastered it; constructed with the very latest technology and a strong environmental ethic in mind, yet simultaneously retaining a classic, refined elegance reminiscent of cruising from a bygone era, this five-star, fully-air-conditioned river cruiser has been purpose-built to fit the unique size limitations of the Douro’s five locks and features all the facilities you would expect in a top-class hotel and more so your cruise will be as relaxing as possible and your stay on board will be a uniquely memorable one. Accommodating just 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 aficionados, enables the ever attentive crew to revel in taking care of all those little things – leaving you to simply sit back, relax and enjoy every minute of your sensational river cruise experience.
