Catching a Uniworld Cruises in Porto

We are taking a train up from Lisbon to Porto. We will be sailing with Uniworld on the Duoro River. Does anyone know where he ship docks? They gave us an address but it means nothing to us.

Thanks,

MBW

You can use mappy.com and enter the street address they gave you to see where in Porto the dock is. You can print the map and take it with you as a reference to show a taxi driver.

I just went to mappy for something else and found out it has changed completely and not for the better. Use viamichelin.com for the Porto map.

You're gonna think I'm totally nuts but I went back to mappy since I could not believe what I was getting before on their site and now it's all normal again. So use either site but I prefer mappy.

I've noticed that people asking for info about their cruise don't mention the date they depart. I don't know whether to post any info because they may have already left.

I'm sorry that is important. We did take the cruise and it was wonderful. The quay was Villa Nova del Gaica which was the other side of the river from Oporto. The train stopped at Villa Nova and we simply got off the train and caught a cab.

Thanks everyone for your help,

MBW
