Purpose-built for Portugal’s Douro River in 2020, ms Andorinha features a modern design that accommodates just 84 guests. This means you’ll have a more personalized experience with the ship’s staff and fellow guests, and less crowds to worry about. Voyages on this river cruise ship include Exploring the Douro, plus Lisbon & Madrid, and Villages and Vintages: Cruising the Douro River Valley.

One of the best features of Tauck river cruises is their small size, so you can have the best river cruising experience possible. With so much space, you might even forget that you’re on a river ship! Grab dinner with that couple you just met in the lounge, or try your hands together at a port wine cocktail-making workshop in Peso da Regua in Portugal. The possibilities are endless!

ms Andorinha boasts some of the grandest staterooms on the Douro River, ranging in size from 150 to 300-sq. feet. ms Andorinha features 12 300-sq. foot Tauck Suites and 20 225-sq. foot staterooms with incredible amenities, such as floor-to-ceiling sliding-door French balconies in most categories. All rooms are equipped with:
  • In-house movies
  • Minibar with water and soft drinks
  • Adjustable temperature controls
  • hair dryer and a private bathroom and shower
  • Essentials Line of Molton Brown bath amenities, among more.

After a long day of exploring and going on exclusive Tauck excursions, you can fall into your soft pillowtop mattress, covered by 400-thead-count satin linens, and quickly fall asleep amongst fine mako cotton pillows and a warm, cotton hypoallergenic comforter with 90% down filling.

These are just a few of the comforts you will find yourself surrounded in once aboard ms Andorinha, where keeping you satisfied and exceeding your expectations are the key focuses of Tauck's service.

As ms Andorinha sails the famous Douro River, you can enjoy the unparalleled riverside views of places such as Porto, Pinhao, Peso de Ruga, Coa Valley, Madrid, Lisbon, Salamanca, and more.


Depending on your itinerary, you can enjoy exciting experiences such as private wine estate dinners, wine county bicycle tours, private palace tours, wine cave tours, active hikes, and so much more. As Tauck strives to stay close and true to their renowned land tour heritage, all port stops include extensive tours of the surrounding area.

When dining onboard ms Andorinha, you can expect Michelin-quality dishes that are served professionally and beautifully presented. Tauck’s chefs create each meal from the freshest and finest of ingredients, and will deliver exceptional dishes from start to finish.

This ship features two main dining venues: The Compass Rose (main restaurant with open seating and vegetarian options), and Arthur’s (a casual venue serving light meals from breakfast to dinner). If the weather is nice, you can even dine al fresco and enjoy a side of fresh air with your meal.

Don’t forget about the exciting offboard dining options that are included in your fare – if you’re feeling adventurous, venture away from the onboard dining options and see what the locale has to offer. It’s not every day that you have the opportunity to sample port wine, paired with local specialties such as cataplana de marisco (a popular seafood dish), sardinhas assadas (grilled sardines), or porco preto (pork-based dishes).

Your dream vacation is just one click or call away. Don’t miss out on the exclusive savings and limited-time deals you’ll get by booking with us. Contact us now to start instantly saving on your next voyage aboard ms Andorinha.
