Emerald Waterways takes Jane McDonald up the gangplank

Emerald Waterways has revealed that Jane McDonald of TV’s ‘Cruising with Jane McDonald’, will be coming on board to serenade passengers as they make their way to Portugal this month.

The  19 April episode of the Bafta award-winning show ‘Cruising with Jane McDonald’ sees the singer and presenter explore a host of Portuguese highlights in a sailing aboard the 112-guest Emerald Radiance sailing from Porto to Salamanca in Spain and back to Porto before heading off for a stay in the southern capital of Lisbon.

During the trip, Jane heads off for a tasting tour of Porto’s famous port cellars, visits the imposing Casa De Mateus (Mateus Palace) in Vila Real, tries her hand at tile painting and takes a rail journey to Lisbon to a factory making traditional Portuguese custard tarts (pastel de nata).

“Everyone loved having her on board”

David Winterton, head of marketing UK & global brand curator, Emerald Waterways, said: “It’s great that Channel 5 and Jane have chosen Emerald Waterways for this latest show. We were delighted to host Jane and the team.

“Everyone loved having her on board and we are looking forward to sharing her cruise with the nation.”
