The “Spirit of Chartwell” defines luxury Douro River barge cruising and sets the standard for service and quality. This barge was designed for and used by Queen Elizabeth and the Royals during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Today the “Spirit of Chartwell” offers travellers a cruise experience worthy of its Royal Heritage. The finest interior furnishings, the impressive amount of space and the high number of staff members per quest, creates an elegant, club-like atmosphere onboard this regal barge. Dressed in classic style, boasting an understated elegance the staterooms feature a television, trouser press, air conditioning, twin beds, and an en-suite bathroom. This sailing is reserved for just 28 guests. I do expect that you will need to prove that you have been fully covid vaccinated to board the flights and/or enter Portugal.
