We adore Mary Berry’s recipes, TV programmes and exceptional style – so we’re over the moon to announce that she’ll be joining our new cruise through Portugal and Spain next summer!
Mary will join the 8-day cruise on the beautiful River Douro for two days – giving a talk, hosting afternoon tea with some of her favourite pastries (well, Portugal is the home of pasteis de nata!), signing books, and hosting a fabulous four-course gala dinner – all exclusively for guests.
“I can see why people are so taken with river cruising,” says Mary. “As someone who’s fascinated by travel, culture and food destinations, I think it’s the perfect way to experience them, plus Portugal’s Douro Valley, which has remained unchanged for centuries, is a real hidden gem. I can’t wait to join you on-board next June.” See the details and book
The Douro runs through one of Europe’s most beautiful stretches of countryside, and you will travel through Portugal and Spain on Emerald Radiance, a luxury ship custom-built to navigate the river. Your wonderful itinerary, which starts and ends in the ancient city of Porto, includes the chance to visit some of the region’s best Port-producing wineries.
There will be plenty of opportunities to sample some of the finest vintages, as well as visit the brilliant Douro Museum, where you’ll learn all about the region’s wine-making heritage. You’ll also visit the ancient Spanish city of Salamanca and have time to wander around its grand squares and lively tapas bars.
Spaces on-board for this special journey with Mary Berry are extremely limited so don’t miss out! See the details and book
