Dubai Marina

Dubai Marina is the place to party on land, sea or in the air! Skydivers have made base jumps off from the top of the Princess Tower which is the second tallest building in Dubai, standing at 414 m (1,358 ft). However you might just prefer a speed boat tour, a boat trip like Jean takes you on, or...

Jean takes you from the Metro, through the Marina to the full on action Jumeirah Beach, where just about every mad and expensive toy and plaything is available. Power jets that have you flying up out of the sea, camel riding, parasailing behind an expensive boat, zip lines, discos, everything imaginable that money can buy is on the beach....

First a warning the Dubai Creek Metro stop does not take you to the area of the creek you might expect, as you will see from the film. The Gold Souk and Spice Souk are one side of the creek and the Old Souk and Heritage Village are on the other side nearer to the cruise terminal. Heritage Village and...

Here is a Dubai film you won't see often. We start in Karama, go to eat street side at Ravi's that watch Carlos Santana in the Park. You can spend on premium goods at the expensive Mall, but there is a down-downtown not too far away, where you can find, and we are quoting the claim made by many...
Dubai Mall Aquarium Not everyone who shops wants to look at fish. Or do they? The children love it and when shopping it is hard to walk past it. Inside the Dubai Mall is the biggest aquarium I have ever seen, it stretches up from the lower floor to the 2nd floor and you can dive in it or take glass...

Waterbus Canal Tour - Many Londoners never visit their own city, we were guilty of that too. So when we started the world travel series we charged ourselves with trying to get to some unusual but simple tours of London between foreign travel. The Canal Boat is a very simple and cheap one and it runs from Little Venice, you can...
This is a typical world route for the Arcadia that only misses out the winter! We mean ALL THE WINTER !  A tour of all the passenger areas of the cruise ship Arcadia is on this site. Another of our favourite ships and as happens most years we will be joining the Arcadia for part of the world cruise. This time...

Everyone has a different cruise experience because there is so much choice and so much to do. The cabin may or may not be important to you. If you spend a lot of time there or have special needs then much research will go into which cabin you have and where it is, how far from the lift, which...

Guadi is all over Barcelona!  -   If you have just the time of a cruise stop, it might be wise to schedule just two places as well as Las Ramblas or one place you study well.   Park Güell on Carmen Hill opened in the year of Gaudi's death and in 1984 made a world Heritage site. It was a housing development...

Most Canary Island Cruises will follow this typical route, though Fred Olsen ships do take in the Moroccan coast. I have always wanted to see Rick's bar in Casablanca. But, not on this version of the route. The Canary Islands itinerary is a favourite on many ships, no flying, no weight restrictions, often Southampton to Southampton. Add that to often nice weather and...
