Portugal Luxury Cruises

With glorious year-round weather, century-old cities, miles of stunning coastline and yes, fantastic wine, if Portugal is not on your destination bucket list, then it should be.

Swashbuckling and romantic, Portugal is a bit like stepping into a fairy tale: medieval castles, rocky hills and green meadows are all the norm - although we cannot guarantee any damsels in distress or knights in shining armour! Adding a further touch of mystique is the Douro River Valley, so lovely that many locals consider it enchanted as well as enchanting. Wander the lovely vineyards, sample the country’s eponymous wine and admire the stupendous scenery that warrants its UNESCO World Heritage status. Bookended by Roman, Visigoth and Moorish history, and underscored by fado rhythms and superb gastronomy (pasteis de nata anyone?) allow yourself the luxury of exploring this award-winning country and its islands with Silversea.


Why Silversea?

Intimate Ships

Silversea has just four ships in our fleet of nine (soon to be ten) that cruise to Portugal, making the most of the miles of craggy coastline. Our ships are among the smallest in the business, no other cruise line can simply compete! At a maximum of 364 suites onboard, we ensure that your home away from home experience begins as soon as you step onboard. Think guaranteed cosy comforts, from quiet little nooks to haute cuisine, we ensure that travelling with Silversea is a once experienced never forgotten experience. The small size of our ships allows us to visit even the most off the beaten track ports, so wherever you want to go, you can get there with Silversea.

Luxury Oceanview Suites

Accommodation aboard any Silversea ship is a luxurious affair and our four Portuguese luxury cruise ships are no exception! Spacious, sophisticated and internationally recognised as being the gold standard of cruising, our luxury ocean view suites really are the epitome of elegance. Make the most of the coast with stunning views from the privacy of your private veranda, or enjoy the creature comforts of your spacious suite. Better yet, imagine yourself enjoying a glass of Port or Madeira in port while enjoying their eponymous coastlines! Now, how about that for bragging rights?

Personalised Service

Let us show you how much we care. Dedicated butlers and stellar service are the hallmarks of any Silversea luxury voyage and we are proud to say that they are the foundation of all our Portugal cruises. Every suite, regardless of category, receives attention from a personal butler to make your holiday a once in a lifetime experience. Excursions booked, reservations made, room service delivered – nothing is too big or too small! Additionally, our crew to guest ratio of nearly 1:1 is the highest in the business. So, let us take care of you, after all … you’re worth it!

All-Inclusive Cruises

All-inclusive means many things to many people, so let’s just clear up any confusion right now. When we say all-inclusive, that’s exactly what we mean. From the Azores to the Algarve, you’ll be secure in the knowledge that your needs have already been taken care of. These include fine food and wine (including premium brands), taxes, fees, evening entertainment, keep-fit classes, gratuities … you name it! Some suite categories even have business class flights and transfers as well, so when we say all-inclusive, we really mean it.

Gourmet Cuisine

Portugal may have given chiles to Asia, brought tea to England, and told the Japanese about tempura, but the country’s gastronomic heritage is still a bit of a mystery – bar the ubiquitous bacalhau and pastéis de nata. A luxury cruise to Portugal will help you enjoy all the country's lovely recipes with our destination-focused dishes and cocktails aboard. Lovers of international fare are not forgotten either: expect yummy Italian specialities in our famous La Terrazza, traditional classics in Atlantide or for those travelling on Silver Spirit, Asian-fusion and Japanese specialities in Indochine and Sheisin. Bom apetite!
