One of our favourite red wines is the Sardinian Cannonau Wine. This island is renowned for having a population who live to be amongst the oldest people in the world; some put it down to that wine. It is expensive back home, so try it there - that is the top Doris Visits tip! Food and wine are excellent here,...
The reason Cruise Operators do not offer shore excursions for the Messina Strait is because they often sail through without stopping. The Strait of Messina (Stretto di Messina) is the narrow passage between the eastern tip of Sicily the land of The Godfather, and the western tip of Calabria southern Italy. Our film is of such a sail thought between the Game of...

New York New York, there is so much to do, and we have so many films, this is just our top tips of what not to miss. It is a huge city where even the locals, the taxi drivers and the police don't know everywhere, they can't know every building which is why everyone works in blocks. If you...

Renowned for being one of the top New Years' Eve destinations, and maybe the top for cruisers, Madeira is normally on the Canary Islands route. It is Portuguese and mainly Christian so Christmas is special, the streets of Funchal get beautifully dressed with thousands of lights. Even outside Funchal, almost every lamppost will be dressed up. However, on New Year's Eve,...

We have to own up and say it is not our favourite port but there are a host of tours. Many rush off to go to the Morrisons supermarket or the very British High Street which claim to be cheaper. What will have you transfixed for a while, is the glass blowing which is well worth a visit. It...

Boston has a lot to offer, but if you are on a cruise this could be your day. Dropped off at Quincy Market by the shuttle bus, then catching the Freedom Trail.
