Diamond Falls Botanical Gardens, St Lucia - These are a very pleasant six acre multi-award winning tourism site, both alluring and peaceful. It is a complete contrast to the beach and a retreat from the outside world. Marvelling the lush fertile vegetation and diverse range of tropical flowers can either be done as an excursion by itself, or added to the Volcano...

Lanzarote is another volcanic island with the darker black, red and white sand beaches and the moonscape parks that you can tour or drive through. The landscape is best seen from the Fire Mountain in the Timanfaya National Park which is famous for the fantastical shapes created by solidified volcanic lava. These have steaming hot natural holes or wells....

San Cristóbal de La Laguna, better known as La Laguna is definitely worth a visit and it will take a half day to explore a good share of the classic the old houses in the main street. There is a local tourist office, as shown in the film, and that should be your first point of call. Get off...

It might be the case that your ship does not sail until late and you can be a little more adventurous that you might be, even if you do want some time on the beach too. Jean was filming a number of things and she could have easily got the bus direct to Puerto de la Cruz, as she...

Doris Visits La Palma in the Canary Islands Once you are in the Canaries area, your ship is just a floating hotel, which overnight moves you to another island. La Palma, ‘the fair isle’, was our stop having left Madeira. It is so called because of its fabulous landscape. Of all the many cruise stops, Santa Cruz is up there as...

The Queen Victoria is a special ship, and whilst in her Brooklyn Cruise Port second home, she hosted a red carpet premiere. Our exec producer Stuart St Paul is a voting member in the directors chapel, and gets invited to many of these events just before and after Christmas. It is not because it is the festive season, it...

Renowned for being one of the top New Years' Eve destinations, and maybe the top for cruisers, Madeira is normally on the Canary Island's route. It is Portuguese and mainly Christian so Christmas is special, the streets of Funchal get beautifully dressed with thousands of lights. Even outside Funchal, almost every lamppost will be dressed up. However, on New Year's Eve,...

St Kitts is a very pleasant town to walk around and an easy town in which to take a local bus. We went to Brimstone Hill Fortress with a very helpful driver, and maybe should have gone further into the next village just to look at life, but after the 40 minute hike up the hill, seeing the extensive...

Adding Jeff Dingle to our site is long over due because he is one of the nicest guys on the cruise circuit, hugely talented and a friend. Jeff has studied every move Bruno Mars makes and his portrayal of him is perfect. You could be at a Bruno Mars concert, but you are on a ship. At the moment...
