Podcast 3 is up for Halloween.


Thanks for taking the time to sail with us on our third – Cruising with Doris Visits Podcast. Stuart thinks that Boston is a spooky cruise port and with good reason. The ghost tours are normally at night, and cruisers have left, but as he joined the ship at Boston for his few days as an entertainer, they flew him in a night early. He thought of a ghost tour, but he went to Cheers and then to Joe’s instead.

The Boston bar that inspired the TV series “Cheers” was originally named the Bull and Finch Pub and was established in 1969. The Boston pub that inspired the fictional bar in the NBC sitcom, Cheers, is a bar in the Beacon Hill area. You go down below street level into the bar, then take the stairs up to a bar that looks more like the one in the TV series. Jean went there rather than complete all the spooky cemeteries on the trail available from the tourist office (mentioned in film).

Jean chose New Orleans as her spooky voodoo cruise stop. On the podcast, you will hear her and comedy magician Manuel Martinez going into the cigar factory. In the film, they saw far more.

Who sang – The Witch Queen of New Orleans? Answer- Redbone.

For fireworks, Stuart chose Sydney Bridge. They have been there on a leg of a world cruise and climbed the bridge tower.
