The British Isles
We have so much to discover back at home, and it is a route visited by many tourist visitors. The ports and lochs are extensive and you will need pounds and Euros!
It is one of our priorities to expand this menu, and you will see how huge it is. If you have a great British Isles cruise film, or find a great film on one of these destinations, please let us know at Press@DorisVisits.co.uk
British Isles: Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Shetland and England's ports and guides
Birmingham is a port to leave from when on a fly drive, and it is so easy, we had to include it. It is our favourite London airport… easiest to get to, cheapest to fly from. See our film…
Bristol is a city with a huge tradition in shipping, from cigarettes to slaves. The wealth can be seen in some of its classic buildings. The C&M Magellan and Marco Polo both use this port as well as other ships. Bristol Cruise Terminal
Maybe one of England’s closest ports to Europe, the White Cliffs became famous for home coming pilots in WW2. The busy port is used by small to medium size ships ships especially Carnival’s German ships like the AidaSol, AidaVita and AidaAura, and the Viking ships kill the Jupiter. Port of Dover
The birth of music, the birth of The Beatles, Liverpool is a legendary city with a legendary historic shipping port. It is where the Titanic left from, it is where many cruise ships now stop and there is so much to do and see. The city is building a new Cruise Terminal as you will see from our posts and films. A major UK cruise port. It is a favourite with many ships from Disney to Queen Victoria to Cruise & Maritime, and there will be more when the capacity increases. There is a Titanic memorial between the port and the Royal Liver Building. Liverpool cruise terminal
Port of Greenwich (MAP) much used in films including the recent Vanity Fair. It is a complex of major historic naval buildings not far from the centre of London. A sky ride can take you across the river to the 02 where you can get a tube into London.
