FIJI, you might cruise into Lautoka, if the weather is OK Quo have done a themed Rock The Boat Cruise, funny how things work out. Because we at Doris Visits make cruise travel films and took them, yes the rock band, to Fiji to make Bula Quo, a feature film for Universal Pictures. Small world! True story, the results of the...

Papeete, Tahiti, French Polynesia. There is very little to do in Papeete itself. It is a major town based around the port. On docking, there will be some musicians playing by the ship, some stalls and buses, taxis and seaways waiting to take you wherever. It is expensive not just for tourists but for the people who live there. To...

News that the island of Fiji has been hit again is devastating for the...

The North Shore is totally different, less developed, more original, more character and far more laid back. It looks and feels more Polynesian and is full of trendy coffee shops full of surfers waiting for the right conditions, or it has big waves and they are out surfing. The area was a retreat for Hawaiian royalty in the 1800s...

This 90m long ship ship stays mainly in the Pacific Ocean and repeatedly visits the Galapagos Islands sailing in and out of the Charles Darwin port. Darwin is also the name of the restaurant, named after the English naturalist, geologist and biologist, known for his theories on evolution. On deck there is an informal Beagle Grill. The boat has a maximum capacity...
