FIJI, you might cruise into Lautoka, if the weather is OK. We have spent a lot of time in Fiji due to filming there with Status Quo who 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...

There is a house tucked away by the old church that is on the Heritage trail, it is called Clough House and is a gem that deserves a special mention. It is an old house, built in 1712 by master bricklayer Ebenezer Clough as a home for himself and his wife. Now, inside there are two actors working their socks off...

The world's Party town - each, drink, be merry & behave. Dubai reminds me of LA about 25 years ago, the place is awash with flash cars, swanky bars, restaurants with style, and areas of extreme poverty and deprivation. London is now like that. The difference in Dubai is, the waiters don't complain about the size of their tips, there...

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...

The Suez Canal widens for bigger business and the ships sail through. Arcadia sails there in 2019 on a wonderful itinerary Dubai to Southampton! 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...
