A smaller Queen...

Douro Queen, the 2005 built passenger vessel, intended to cruise the magnificent Douro River.
With 1587 t GT and 77,8 m LOA she is a sister vessel of Algarve Cruiser, also built by Viana Yard and operating at the Portuguese South coast. Fitted with two “schottel” directional propellers aft, and one bow thruster, she is highly manoeuvrable, a very important aspect due to the Douro River locks.
She has 65 cabins to accommodate 130 passengers, some saloons, a terrace and several other modern facilities.

Seen here sailing from Viana on her maiden voyage, bound to the Douro.

Consta que a Douro Azul vai construir em 2007 mais dois navios de cruzeiros, um para o Douro, outro para o Amazonas..

Seriam excelentes notícias, especialmente se fossem construídos em Portugal...
