VANCOUVER — Scenic is once again partnering with acclaimed Canadian musician Jann Arden for an eight-day sailing along Portugal’s Douro River.
Marking her third river cruise with Scenic, Arden will board the 96-guest Scenic Azure alongside guests for an all-inclusive roundtrip sailing out of Porto on Oct. 30, 2023. The 5-star ‘Space-Ship’ will visit Portugal’s top sites, from the Baroque village of Lamego, to the terraced vineyards and charming towns just beyond the banks of the Douro. Guests will also enjoy a tasting at the fairytale property of Quinta da Aveleda, kayak along the Pinhão River, cross the Spanish border to tour Salamanca, and participate in a range of activities onboard like mosaic tile painting, a port wine cocktail lesson and a Portuguese cooking demonstration.
“I am beyond excited to embark on yet another superb adventure with Scenic River Cruises,” said Arden. “We are going to have the time of our lives in Portugal, a country that I’ve never had the opportunity to explore, until now! I’m really looking forward to experiencing it with all of you, all while enjoying the luxury hospitality of Scenic.”
During the voyage, Arden, who was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 2020, will host three exclusive experiences: an opening night welcome reception; an intimate Q&A session; and an onboard evening concert.
Prices start at $7,395 per person, double. Guests who book by March 31, 2023 can fly for $695 per person (or receive a credit of $600) and save an additional $1,000 per couple if the fare is paid in full at the time of booking.
