Tauck Suites among her five cabin categories. Guest amenities inside her lush 300-square-foot, Category 5 Tauck Suites include brocade upholstery, roomy walk-in closets with built-in drawers, spacious bathrooms with separate showers, and two French balconies with floor-to-ceiling windows that open to the idyllic riverscapes of Portugal's golden Douro River Valley – a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and one of the oldest wine-producing regions in the world.
