An Evening in Venice

It is not often cruisers get to have an evening anywhere, so this is a treat and happened on Aurora R717. Many ships that visit Venice will leave in the evening because the lit buildings, the lit boats and yachts and the reflections on the water of the Grand Canal are quite something special. The late leave is also because you are probably not going far. It is likely that Zadar in Croatia is your next stop followed by Dubrovnik the day after.

This is filmed from the 13th deck of the P&O ship Aurora, the choice ship of passengers who like a smaller family ship that has a few extra amenities. Here is our film of all passenger areas of the Aurora. Click here for film.

So it is off to the Beach House for a meal on deck to watch the last of Venice fade away, then down to see one of the best entertainers on the cruise circuit, Maurice Grumbleweed.

For more information about Venice see our Masked Ball page.

You may have seen the author on a ship giving an after-dinner speech or a lecture, his page is here. Stuart St Paul – click here  

Essentials – cruise travel labels and our cruise crime novels – oh, and the seasickness bands.

The Port guides here on Doris Visits are a great way to remember your cruise and share with your friends. The mystery thrillers are a whole new way to experience cruising. You may not have been to the ports in the novels, you certainly won’t have been to the parts of the ship they use. All the cruise crime novels will make you feel like you are in the adventure and on the ship – dodge the bullets and stay out of the romance. Ship and cruise accurate, the novels are a great way for new cruisers to discover a ship too. Please share the Amazon link. .CRUISE SHIP HEIST
