10,000 miles from home

At the far end of the Abu Dhabi Destination Village, there’s some seriously loud activity.

Clanging, banging, sanding and sealing – if it’s noisy, it’s happening in this place.

And as the blazing Arab sun beams in 24 degrees of mid-afternoon heat, it’s hard to believe that there’s just one week to go until Christmas.

Amongst these grinders, screwdrivers and spanners, there’s not a single jingle bell in sight.

Nick Bice, Head of the Boatyard, raises his voice above the clatter and chatter. “With the pressures of Christmas, we’ve put a timeline on the maintenance period,” he explains. “We’re going to be pretty strict that a lot of the staff make it home for Christmas day, to spend time with their family.” Then, a pause. “Some of us aren’t so lucky.”
