Service on board was outstanding and food great. Very nice boat although smaller than other Viking longboats. Rooms are ample and comfortable with small balcony.

A Pleasant Surprize by OsfridCruiser

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Portugal was not our first choice for the cruise - the Rhone cruise to the south of France was the first choice. However, because the Portugal cruise was the only one available in our desired time schedule we took it and boy, were we surpirized. It was a great cruise. Portugal was magnificent and our guides were exceptional as they were Portugese who are very proud of their country and did their utmost to show us the best that their country had to offer. They did a fantastic job. So, we got a great replacement for the Rhone which we will do at a later date. Porto, Lisbon and the Duoro Valley were definitely worth the visit. I am not a wine enthusiast but Port wines were great.

Wine, Port, Beautiful Scenery, more Wine, more Port by RamboTrout

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We did the pre-cruise stay in Lisbon, but ended up being there too long, despite our hotel (Tivoli Avenida Liberdade) being centrally located and excellent. The ship is wonderful, although our cabin felt cramped. There is a large Lounge though, and a spacious upper deck with Pool. The scenery along the Douro (Duero) is wonderful. The staff on board look after you exceptionally well and you will always have plenty to eat and drink. Occasionally, we found the food to be bland and one day, our table of 8 all had tough, inedible steaks. Otherwise, the food was fine. Breakfast was disappointing, with packaged fruit juice (not squeezed), poor selection of fresh fruit and luke warm cooked breakfast. Eggs Benedict was fantastic, as were the freshly prepared eggs & omelettes. One major plus on this cruise, was that EVERYONE (about 100 guests is max) was warm, friendly and educated. Maybe a different class of people choose this type of cruise. We would highly recommend this cruise (Viking have 3 ships currently on this route).

Beautiful cruise through scenic location.... by therodg

Sail Date: /

Beautiful cruise through scenic location. Be prepared for bus based excursions. Most excursion sites are some distance from the Douro River. Excursions were very interesting and informative. During our cruise there was little boat traffic. Brilliant views of vineyards and natural settings. Smooth sailing all the way. Crew was fantastic as you expect from Viking. Expect to be berthed between ships in Porto. Limits views from your cabin. When on the river views are impressive.

Perfect Ship for the Douro and Great Staff by rakulka

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The Osfrid is one of the smallest ships in the Viking fleet, but very well designed for this trip.  Many in the crew were Portuguese, quite engaged and very committed to serving their guests on a very unique itinerary.  Our only major disappointment was that the bed in our cabin had a notable and unfortunate peak in the center of the mattress which made a comfortable sleep more difficult than it should have been.
