Les Trois Vallées is such a vast area of mixed shopping, dining and rich hotels to pensions anyone can ski there. A wide selection of runs and family areas but the resorts are very different. One area has almost no bars, others have many bars. You will see. Many of our cruisers like to golf and ski, we have...
Toulon is France's main naval base that occasionally easily doubles as a cruise port. Toulon not only has a charm unspoiled by tourists, it is surrounded by idyllic villages and charming seafronts. I first went there in high company, sitting under the trees having lunch with Sir Anthony Hopkins.... let me explain. Once on a movie, the director John Glenn...

We are back in Barbados for the very start of yet another Caribbean Season, the first days for the Azura in 2017 – A732. We know Barbados well, not just because it is the home port for this ship and others but because we have visited it many times. Our first time was many years ago when we met...

We flew to Venice and picked up the ship, sadly our cases did not arrive on the same plane as we did so missed the ship. We knew where they were at all times because of our tracker,...

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...
You may know Jean as the main presenter here at Doris Visits, but on sea days in costume, she performs her one woman show, Royal Mistresses. It is a show which she has played all over the UK at conferences and women's guilds, all over the world on ships, and on Broadway! Recently she was on both cruises, Aurora...

Kong: Skull Island is an epic $185m movie, both a critical and financial success. See Jean's recap of the film after watching it on the Aurora autumn cruise of New England.
