CroisiEurope’s latest ship, the MS Amália Rodrigues, has been inaugurated in Porto.
The ship is the sixth to join CroisiEurope’s fleet on the Douro and is its third premium-rated ship on the Golden River.
MS Amália Rodrigues can accommodate 132 passengers in 66 double-occupancy cabins, including four suites and a cabin for guests with reduced mobility. There is also a spacious lounge, panoramic restaurant, a shop, a large sun deck, a swimming pool and a crew of 25.
Furnished and decorated in Strasbourg, the ship has a contemporary feel, featuring colours and shapes of the Mediterranean along with plenty of natural lighting and open spaces, designer furniture and stylish, sleek décor.
The ship’s godmother is Dr Maria Alexandrina Quaresma of the Amália Rodrigues Foundation. Amália Rodrigues was known as the ‘Queen of Fado’ and was instrumental in popularising fado worldwide. The ship’s godfather is Dr Marco Martins, mayor of the city of Gondomar, which regularly welcomes CroisiEurope’s ships in its port.
All-inclusive cruise-only prices on MS Amália Rodrigues start from £791 per person for a six-day cruise round trip from Porto including all meals and drinks as well as entertainment and a gala evening.
