Hello,

The port is on the Gaia side. It's easy to get to Gaia from the Porto side, just walk across the Pont Luis bridge or take a taxi. I think there are plenty of hotels on both side. We stayed in Porto, in the Ribeira area, near the waterfront. We loved the location. Lot's of restaurants and shops. Near the San Francisco Church and Bolsa Palace - both a must-see. We walked across the bridge to catch a river cruise and saw the Viking Doura docked in Gaia. Gaia has many Port Wine cellars for wine tasting. If you want to visit Porto, I would recommend staying in Porto vs. Gaia. Saves you the trouble of going across the bridge everytime but even that is not a problem.

How far is the Train Station (the train that goes to Vigo, Spain) from the Viking River Cruises Disembarkation port office?

I suppose that you're refering to Porto-Campanhã. You have to take a train to Porto-S.Bento train station and then walk down to Ribeira and across D.Luis bridge to Gaia.

The Viking River Cruises disembarkation is in Cais de Gaia.

From Vigo you arrive at Campanhã train station and is better to take the train to São Bento train station, just 5 minutes. When you arrive in São Bento - in the city center, catch the bus 900, 901 or 906 to Cais de Gaia or walk down to the river, is about 30 minutes.
