Ciao, Opera Mavens.

Tom Taffel has come out of (a very brief) retirement to host his 74th and final opera group river cruise on Europe’s most beautiful river, UNESCO’s World Heritage Site: The Douro River Valley, which crosses Portugal from Porto to Salamanca and back to Porto, including Barca d’Alva (Salamanca, Spain), Pinhão, (Sandeman Wine Cellers private tour/tasting), and Régua (with lots of port tastings).

Our group (now at 39 opera lovers & nearly sold out) will have a $500 per couple discount which includes three days in Lisbon* followed by an exquisite seven-day sailing on AmaWaterway’s newest ultra-luxury ship, the 102-passenger “AmaDouro” (includes daily entertainment and cultural performances). There are a few NO single supplement cabins in two categories. Cruise fares start at $3,131. Excursions are included as well as champagne and fresh juice for breakfast, unlimited fine wines, beers and soft drinks with lunch and dinner plus a daily cocktail hour; we will also have complimentary computer and Internet access.
