Dubai Mall Aquarium Not everyone who shops wants to look at fish. Or do they? The children love it and when shopping it is hard to walk past it. Inside the Dubai Mall is the biggest aquarium I have ever seen, it stretches up from the lower floor to the 2nd floor and you can dive in it or take glass...

New to Choosing a Cruise? That is what Doris Visits is here for. We try to help you                     SEE THE CRUISE BEFORE YOU CRUISE THE SEA. Last night we sat and had dinner, on land, with friends who had just come back from the Orient Express, now wanting to cruise. The comment...

Party town, to each, drink, be merry & behave Dubai reminds me of LA about 25 years ago, the place is awash with flash cars, swanky bars, restaurants with style, and areas of extreme poverty and deprivation.

Dubai is a long way away to be in a short cruise unless you fly cruise. It is on longer cruises but Fred Olsen includes it, the Arcadia does it yearly and the Oceana adds it in 2019 as do Thomson with fly cruise. See links below. Which ever way you go it is worth it and you will...
Aqaba, the gateway to Petra, Wadi Rum, the Dead Sea and so much more. I did not travel to Aqaba when some of the others were shooting a movie there, so I missed Petra and had to endure hearing about it over and over again. It was on my Bucket list and I did get to go there many years...

Dubai is now a popular cruise stop, and occasionally passengers are lucky enough to get an overnight. You may go for a holiday so here is a list of things to do, and things not to do if you don't want to be arrested. And being arrested here means arrested! The P&O Arcadia stops there on the way back...

First a warning the Dubai Creek Metro stop does not take you to the area of the creek you might expect, as you will see from the film. The Gold Souk and Spice Souk are one side of the creek and the Old Souk and Heritage Village are on the other side nearer to the cruise terminal. Heritage Village and...
