On the S.S. São Gabriel, you can spend time on the sundeck while knowing that you are making a difference by supporting MOAA Charities. When you step aboard the newest ship on the Duoro River, you will be greeted with lavish suites, butler services, delicious food, and unlimited fine wines. With a $300 exclusive on-board credit for MOAA members, the world is at your fingertips.


As you embark on your journey with like-minded, culturally curious, MOAA Charities supporters, you will get stunning views of UNESCO World Heritage sites in the European countryside. This unique itinerary, which winds through five cities June 5-12, 2022, offers the option for additional locations and excursions to truly make the experience one of a kind.


When you step off the ship, local, English-speaking experts will show you around the city while a Quietvox portable audio headset system will help you catch every word. Bicycles and Nordic walking sticks will also be available.


After your daytime adventures, you can retire to your riverview stateroom with hotel-style beds, fully equipped with free internet and Wi-Fi access to share your photos and stay connected to everyone at home.


As you cruise down the Duoro, The MOAA Foundation and the MOAA Scholarship Fund will be hard at work supporting all members of the uniformed services community, past and present. The MOAA Foundation provides critical military and veteran family programs, while the MOAA Scholarship Fund has provided more than $160 million in educational assistance to more than 16,000 students. Additional opportunities to support these charities while on board include a silent auction, raffles and the chance to win a seven-day Venetian cruise.


If you are already looking forward to a European vacation during the summer of 2022, and hoping to help a cause you care about, do not hesitate to reserve your spot, as room numbers are limited. This intimate excursion will offer memories to last a lifetime while making a lasting impact on those who are served by The MOAA Foundation and the MOAA Scholarship Fund.
