Spitsbergen Cruises

Found on board many cruises, the ROL Cruise Ambassadors are there to ensure your holiday runs as smoothly as possible and can offer advice on anything from Cruise Miles® and documentation, to future cruise bookings and how to make the best of the destinations you are visiting. If they are on board your voyage, you will receive a letter introducing them and advising where and when they can be found. We are delighted to introduce you to John and Liz Schultz, they can’t wait to welcome you aboard…

As we spent much of 2020 ashore, many of us can’t wait to take to the seas again. Do you have any exciting travel and cruising plans for 2021 and beyond?

We are hoping to go on a tour of Japan in early June, which we should have been on in May 2020.

When we can return to the seas, the cruise experience will be a little different. What are your expectations for this newer way of cruising?

We are hoping it will be as much as normal, we do expect more hygiene and social distancing, no helping yourself to food. But as time goes on and the vaccine proves to be working, things will slowly relax.

What are you most looking forward to about returning to cruising?

Seeing old friends, meeting new people, travelling to new places.

What’s on your travel bucket list for the next few years?

Spitsbergen/Arctic and the South Pacific Islands.

Do you have any top cruising tips for our customers?

Be sure to pack all medication and documentation in your hand luggage. Research ports in advance.

Can you tell us a bit about your unique relationship with ROL Cruise?

As a retired couple, ROL Cruise has given us a unique opportunity to share our extensive experience of worldwide travel with ROL guests. To enable them to have the best experience possible.

What do you love most about being a ROL Cruise Ambassador?

Meeting people from all walks of life, making new friends and being able to help them if needed.

Why do you think it’s important to book with a travel agent?

First and foremost, peace of mind - knowing that if there are any problems or questions, you have someone to help sort things out for you. Also prior to booking, you have someone who can answer all your questions and provide advice.
