Entertainers

When Doris meets with some of the great live acts on the cruise circuit we share the experience as there is no where now that you will find such an array of top class entertainment playing for you nightly. All of us need to be followed on Twitter and Facebook, so she will share their details. This project will take some time to complete.

FINE DINING ON SHIP The very first night on board is a great night to celebrate, not least because there is very often a free bottle of wine on offer in the fine dining restaurants. This is Marco's Ocean Grill which is frequented by officers as well as passengers. Marco Pierre White is an English chef, restauranteur from Leeds. You will...
At last entertainment at sea has its own section on Doris Visits, because whichever passenger you ask why they cruise, somewhere in the long answer they will probably mention entertainment, food and price in one long sentence. Maybe this is why entertainment continues to be in our top three blogs. We do update it, we have just added Jimmy...

Atul Kochhar's Sindhu Restaurant The Sindhu restaurant from Atul Kochhar is a firm favourite with Doris Visits. Atul is an Indian born, British based chef, restaurateur and television personality. One of the most critically acclaimed chefs in Britain, Kochhar's take on modern Indian cuisine has now won him two Michelin stars. He was the second Indian chef to receive a...

It is rather odd that we never saw Freddie Mercury live, because as young film makers we had a company called Fugitive (we made The Krays with Gary & Martin Kemp as well as endless 1980's pop videos). The overall boss of the company was Queen's manager and we used the offices above the bands touring warehouse behind Capital...

If anyone in the industry was asked who is the Cliff tribute, they would say Jimmy Jemain. Recently I got to see him again on board ship. He is quite an incredible Cliff. Let me explain how we first met. I have been a Cliff Richard fan since I was a little girl. Summer holiday was the first film my...

Jon Fisher is without doubt the foremost Gary Barlow tribute. It is amazing just how like Gary Barlow Jon is, from his mannerisms, to looks and voice. Jon works just about everywhere but is flown between the cruise ships like a rock star and is on many of the P&O ships. I had to laugh when we were recently on...
Benjamin Makisi "The Tenor of the Pacific" Ben was born in Wellington NZ where he began singing in church. He is of Tongan and Samoan descent and does look like a member of the 'All Blacks', but he is a man of gentle character although I am not sure you would want to cross him. He graduated with a Master of Performance (Opera)...

We first met Derek Redmond 25 years ago when he collapsed at the Barcelona Olympics, stood, tripled with an injury that meant he could not finish and his father ran onto the track and helped him (carried him if you read a red top paper) to the finish line. The YouTube video of that has had way over 1.7...
Andy Wilkins, Comedian Andy Wilkins is a cheeky and hugely likeable lad who we first me on the Black Watch crossing; Panama to Tahiti. In that week we became great mates and he appeared in our ICON released movie Freight which is currently on Netflix, with Billy Murray, Jean Heard (Doris), Laura Aikman (Jean's real daughter) and Craig Fairbrass. The film went...

Question, what do these three women have in common? Adele, Lulu, and Dusty Springfield? They have all had number 1 records? No, they are all Maxine Mazumder. Maxine Mazumder is a multi award-winning and hugely talented singer who is also more than impressionist, she is a chameleon! Maxine has the incredible ability to change into different characters from Dusty to Lulu and...
