  3. Gil Eanes
This was an exclusive group booking by BrandG sailing down river to Oporto. First glance showed this to be a new modern and smart boat with decent top deck and small cool shallow pool. The top deck needed clearing to get under one bridge only. We were able to visit the bridge once. The crew were very pleasant and the bar service excellent compared to previous river sailings. Food was fine and waiter served at dinner but buffet lines for lunch were often long. Our double bed cabin on 3 deck had a large slide back glass wall which was excellent with good curtains as some times you are alongside another boat. They do not sail at night. Good shower. The air con unit was directly above the bed though and a little difficult to adjust! Decent storage space and safe. The duvet was too warm though. The river and huge locks interesting, though the water can be slow flowing and green in places. A good value boat.

Good ship & Staff
