A-Rosa has launched a “buy one, get one free” cruise offer on selected Douro sailings following the UK government’s decision to remove Portugal from its quarantine list.

In addition to the offer, the river line also now has a “buy one, get one half price” on other selected sailings on the same river.

The selected sailings for both offers depart in September and October this year.

A spokesperson said: “These new cruise-only offers are ideal for those agents who choose to package up A-Rosa cruise only fares with flights to Porto and transfers to the ship.”

Prices start from £690 per person with the free place saving applied.

The line’s latest ship, A-Rosa Alva (pictured), offers the seven-night Experience the Douro sailing, departing from Porto on Wednesdays.

The itinerary has been tweaked to avoid Spain. Britons are currently forced to quarantine upon their return to the UK if they enter Spain.

The excursion to Salamanca has been replaced with a trip to Castelo Rodrigo in Portugal.
