You're invited to join Zinfandel Advocates & Producers (ZAP) in the epicenter of the Port wine industry as you wind your way though dramatic landscapes of the UNESCO designated Douro Valley.  Uniworld's Queen Isabel is your contemporary-chic floating hotel for 7 nights along the "river of gold" - Douro River Valley -  snaking through 200 miles of rugged wilderness, steeply terraced hillside, quaint villages and acres of ripe vineyards.   

The round-trip Porto cruise takes you on a journey through Portugal's pristine landscapes and Spain's historic neighborhoods, exploring everything from traditional cuisine to the local Port wine.  The Douro Valley is a jewel and there really is no better way to discover Europe's best-kept secret than this scenic and all-inclusive river cruise with ZAP!  ZAP's unrivaled University of Zin activities will include a welcome party and dinner, seminar and tastings, group dinners and more.  You will become well acquainted with our onboard winery hosts, as they share their favorite wines, knowledge, philosophies and winemaking passion.
