Entertainers

When Doris meets with some of the great live acts on the cruise circuit we share the experience as there is no where now that you will find such an array of top class entertainment playing for you nightly. All of us need to be followed on Twitter and Facebook, so she will share their details. This project will take some time to complete.

I have never been to an opera. I probably won't be going in the near future, but this is a treat of an act I never miss. Whilst I might not be an opera fan I am a huge fan of The Opera Boys. Their act, now over 5 years old, this small stable of the countries top tenors have...

We first met Derek Redmond 25 years ago when he collapsed at the Barcelona Olympics, stood, crippled with an injury that meant he could not finish and his father ran onto the track and helped him (carried him if you read a red top paper) to the finish line. The YouTube video of that has had way over 1.7...
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...

I have spent nearly 50 years in the entertainment and now visit the ships to talk about it and am bombarded by questions. Not least because now both my daughter and son in law have bigger profiles than me and also work in VIDEO GAMES as actors - yes acting in Video Games - it has all changed. So...

One of my absolute pleasures on board ship is going to the cinema and seeing films that are set in locations I have visited on a cruise. They show films throughout the day and in the evening so it doesn't have to be a choice between the theatre or a film. You can easily do both. I watched My...

Darren Day often appears in Britannia's Limelight club, the premium entertainment area that has been such a success in attracting great entertainers that it is to be continued into the new ship P&O is having built. Darren was on the very special entertainment program that accompanied Britannia's Strictly Come Dancing Cruise. He joined the Strictly cruise at Cartagena and certainly made...

When on the Aurora (one of my favourite ships) R715 New England cruise I went to see $185m movie Kong: Skull Island, and it is probably a film I wouldn't have gone to see normally. However, when on ship you do get to experience new adventures including seeing the next in the King Kong franchise, after all, this cruise was taking...

Maurice will not have wanted to be listed as a comedian, but he's one of the funniest men on any stage. Just like he wouldn't want to be listed as a singer, but he is brilliant. He sings Ralf McTell, he sings everyone with ease, he just knows how to play the audience like a well oiled violin. A...

Brian McFadden of Westlife fame and Keith Duffy from popular band Boyzone take their sell out tour to sea and get up close and personal on board the Britannia. Keith Duffy was in last year’s reality TV cookery programme, Battlechefs, which was filmed in the cookery class area and foodie area on board. They appeared at the Britannia's Limelight club on the...

Jon Fisher is without doubt the foremost Gary Barlow tribute. It is amazing just how like Gary Barlow Jon is, from his mannerisms, to looks and voice. Jon works just about everywhere but is flown between the cruise ships like a rock star and is on many of the P&O ships. I had to laugh when we were recently on...
