If you’re trying to learn more about the QSuite experience, I’d highly recommend you check out the review of my flight from Hong Kong to Doha, where I gave an extensive evaluation of the hard product. On this flight I assigned my family a quad suite, which is one of the ways Qatar Airways creatively customised their QSuite product. This trip report will mostly focus on that, as well as how the soft product differed of that of the other Qatar Airways flights I took on this trip.
Docks opened to the 51,000 visitors of the 42nd Cannes Yachting Festival on Tuesday, effectively kicking off the fall boat-show season. The seaside city of Cannes, set along the French Riviera, makes way each year for everything from go-fast speedboats to tenders, dayboats and superyachts, both motor and sailing. In total, this year’s show features 542 exhibitors and 640 boats in the water, from Astandoa to Wally—and beyond.
“This year the Yachting Festival is organized between the two ports,” says Sylvie Ernoult, director of the Cannes fest. “The Vieux Port hosts the ultimate in motor boats while Port Canto becomes the new showcase for the most beautiful sailing boats.” Ernoult points out that free sea and land shuttles are provided to help visitors get from one port to another easily. She recommends taking the day boat—which offer magnificent view of the Croisette and the bay of Cannes—to enjoy a fleeting moment on the water.
You also don’t want to miss the Concours d’Élégance, an in-water parade of vintage and modern day boats that pay tribute to the history of yachting on the French Riviera. Of course, no boat show would be complete without the proper yachting accoutrements. The event’s Luxury Gallery showcases watches, jewelry, artwork and other handcrafted items.
The beautiful Great Ocean Road. A must do when in Melbourne, this road trip will take at least a day or two out of your itinerary but a trip to Melbourne wouldn’t be complete without hitting the road and experiencing the worlds longest war memorial. Built between 1919-1932, the Great Ocean Road stretches 151 miles, and […]
I admit, when I first started traveling, my interests were pretty limited. I simply longed for a beautiful beach. This was before my introduction to Europe, before Asia, before South America and Alaska. I just wanted to find the most pristine sandy coves fronting the most luscious clear waters — and rank them. More than a million miles intervened, and naturally, thankfully, my travel repertoire expanded, to cultural and architectural sites, to diverse cuisines and, most meaningfully, to interactions with the citizens of dozens of fascinating countries.
Of course my love of beaches never faded, so what a treat, at the end of my Panama Canal cruise on Westerdam, to disembark on Half Moon Cay. Full disclosure: I was here before on Nieuw Amsterdam, on my first Holland America Line cruise in 2011. So I’m feeling lots of anticipation as the crew, with friendly Dutch cadets like Jelmer onboard, on hand to see that everyone has a great time. Just like before, I book a cabana, and as I make my way to it, soft fine sands underfoot, I wonder if today is going to be a replay of that sunny Bahamian day eight years ago. When I see the water, I barely have the patience to find my cabana and meet my smiling butler, and then I’m grabbing my swim goggles and running past pine trees and lounge chairs down to the water’s edge. The loungers are arrayed so perfectly — with a clearing in the center that seems made just for my ease of access into the sea.

And it could signal a new direction for the watchmaker.
Vacheron Constantin debuted a seriously hot new Overseas Dual Time watch this week in New York City’s Greenwich Village, along with new brand ambassador Cory Richards. The National Geographic photographer and adventurer wore the watch on a recent attempt to summit a new route on Mount Everest—he has already reached the peak twice, once without oxygen in 2016—but Mother Nature proved a formidable opponent when the weather prevented the completion of his ascent.
During his climb, the new Dual Time watch allowed him to tell time both in Tibet and back home in the States, while its über-tough and ultralight case was able to withstand the extreme conditions of the world’s toughest mountain. For the rest of us, it simply offers a beautifully executed sports watch.
