Acclaimed Canadian musician, actor and author Jann Arden is again partnering with Scenic for a sailing on Portugal’s Douro River.
The eight-day Delightful Douro cruise, Ms. Arden’s third river cruise with Scenic, is aboard the intimate 96-guest Scenic Azure.
The all-inclusive cruise sails roundtrip out of World Heritage city of Porto, departing on Oct. 30, 2023, and takes guests on an exploration of many of Portugal’s top sites – from the Baroque village of Lamego to the terraced vineyards and charming towns just beyond the banks of the country’s lifeline – the Douro.
Pricing for the sailing starts at CAD $7,395 per person (double). Guests booking by March 31, 2023 can fly for $695 per person (or receive a credit of $600) and can save an additional $1,000 per couple if fare is paid in full at the time of booking.
“I am beyond excited to embark on yet another superb adventure with Scenic River Cruises,” said Arden in a statement. “We are going to have the time of our lives in Portugal, a country that I’ve never had the opportunity to explore - until now! I’m really looking forward to experiencing it with all of you, all while enjoying the luxury hospitality of Scenic! See you in October!”
Ms. Arden, a multi-platinum award-winning artist, erupted onto the Canadian music scene in 1993 and has released 15 albums with 19 top ten singles.
In 2020 she was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame and has received numerous other awards, recognizing her multiple talents.
Ms. Arden will treat guests to three exclusive experiences during the sailing: an opening night welcome reception; an intimate Q&A session; and an onboard evening concert.
“From her most recent musical release, Descendant, to writing five best-selling books and starring in CTV’s hit original comedy series, JANN, Arden is a Canadian original – a brilliant multi-dimensional talent,” Scenic said.
These memorable experiences are in addition to an itinerary that offers the opportunity to explore the hidden treasures of Portugal - Lamego, where guest take in the Sanctuary of Nossa Senhora dos Remédios,; a tasting at Quinta da Aveleda, in the famous Vino Verde region; kayaking along the Pinhão River; and crossing the Spanish border to tour Salamanca, a city as visually striking as it is historically intriguing.
On board, guests may enjoy mosaic tile painting, a port wine cocktail lesson, or a Portuguese cooking demonstration, among other possible activities.
