Back to the ship moored at Peso da Régua

Approaching Carrapatelo Lock, with the wind creating white tops

Leaving the lock, with Vasco Da Gama waiting to come in

Enjoying the sun on the front deck



With Trevor and Sheila having a drink before the Captain's Dinner; unfortunately the Captain was not there as he had some issues with the ship to sort out.

Ricardo keeping us entertained

Carmen keeping us informed.... or not!

Manager Victor and his team

Waiter Carlos doing what he does best!

The Portuguese folk group




The dreaded audience participation. Time to make a quick exit as the dancing degenerated into the conga!
