Cruise Tips

Here are some short tips for cruises, whether new or old. If you have a tip, please post them in the comments. We will try and add as many cruise tips as we can

You can go on a cruise and enjoy just what was in the ticket price, and why not, it is a great full-board holiday. You can still dine in the main restaurants, dress up and enjoy black tie nights and see the great acts all in your holiday cost. You may be able to, in some cases argue that...
We often see passengers shock, anger and disappointment at airports because a traveller has bought a bottle in duty-free with all the intentions of enjoying their holiday, and as they change planes the bottle is confiscated. Where have we seen that? Numerous airports:- South Korea changing planes for Australia, Fiji etc, Canada changing planes for the Pacific or down...

The dress code does catch guests out. We have seem some very embarrassed faces on Black Tie nights when some passengers realise people do make the effort. We have seen many buy black suit and ties in the shop to comply, and some sitting, determined that they will ensure it does not apply to them until the officers on...

I am pretty streetwise but I have been pick pocketed twice. Twice in the same place and it does not appear on the Trip Advisor top ten. Jean has been bag lifted once, again not on that list. So I thought I would run a Doris Visits slant on their pick pocket places top ten, and add to some...

Books as Kindle versions are great...

Another cruise ship comedian, Taffy Spencer, has been bemoaning lost his luggage .... well, as they say in the song, 'the days of Taffy Spencer' .... days with no clean pants! Manuel Martinez lost his flying back to do his live at the Apollo and quick back to the Britannia. These guys are on planes at least twice a week....

Maybe. I have been very lucky to have survived a broken spine twice and can still snow ski despite two complete artificial knees which followed as many operations and and pins as any pro athlete. I was a stuntman before becoming a film director. Those who are genuinely reliant on a chair and help are always in my consideration...
There is a knack to finding the best bits of a location. Postcards! We have been making films and television for a while so we tend to approach new destinations the same way. To be frank it is similar to cruising, you are dropped in a new town, village, city, location and you have a set amount of time...

Say NO to the retirement home. There are people who live permanently on cruise ships - it could be cheaper and you get better service. When we did a few tours on the Aurora in 2017 we joined in Boston and there were guests who had been on for ages. We left to edit, rejoined that ship some 6...
