Dubai Marina

video
Dubai Marina is the place to party on land, sea or in the air! Skydivers have made base jumps off from the top of the Princess Tower which is the second tallest building in Dubai, standing at 414 m (1,358 ft). However you might just prefer a speed boat tour, a boat trip like Jean takes you on, or...
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...
A Baltic cruise will give you around seven historic cities to explore - and see four seasons in a day be prepared to walk or take tours - see our pages on destinations A Baltic Cruise is history from start to finish as your ship stops at many cities that were part of the Hanseatic Trading League, sound familiar, that started...
This is a typical world route for the Arcadia that only misses out the winter! We mean ALL THE WINTER !  A tour of all the passenger areas of the cruise ship Arcadia is on this site. Another of our favourite ships. It is classed as a mid- size ship, but we suggest it has the facilities of a larger ship...

The Mall is slightly older than the Dubai Mall and is a little smaller. It might have a few more up market shops, that is arguable, but it is easier to orientate around. You would be pushed to see both in one day but it is not impossible on the metro if you are nimble. This one is a...

But Dubai has also become the long weekend shopping trip. In Dubai there is so much to choose from. The Souks local to the cruise terminal are wonderful, The Gold and Spice on one side of the...

8.4 Billion dollars expanding the Suez a few years ago is having positive effect. Oceana adds Arabian Adventures to its 2019 itinerary, so it won't just be the Arcadia World or Fred Olsen who takes you there. Who else will go through the canal? SUEZ CANAL to SALALAH, MUSCAT, DUBAI When Doris Visits went to the World Travel Market at the end...

The Tallest Building In The World The Burj Khalifa has a viewing platform on the 124th floor, for which, like many attractions in Dubai you have to purchase tickets in advance. Seriously, there is every chance it will be sold out if you leave it until you get there. It stands, the tallest building at 2717 feet to the roof,...

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...

The first time we went to the Madinat , the playground of the rich, we went by taxi for dinner, spoilt by our son and his wife who lived there. We took a ride on a gondola type boat in this man made Venice where there are most big franchise bar restaurants. This whole resort is a very expensive...
