Give an exceptional service, professional and always a good deal

25 Sep 2018

They always give us a great price and give excellent customer service. We have booked many cruises with ROL and the service they give is professional and customer friendly.

Planning ahead. We wanted a trip which would dispel the cold winter blues.

The young lady who came on the phone was brilliant. Not only helpful but gave us information which helped us to make our decisions. She was polite but not pushy. And, more to the point, she was patient even when we um'd and ah'd over the finer details.

xetremely helpful

25 Sep 2018

they were patient and helpful as we wanted a flight from the North of England rather than London. This necessitated some contact with the cruise company but the agent was more than willing.

Helpful staff

25 Sep 2018

I spoke to two staff and found them very helpful offering good advice on cabins, and we were also offered a complimentary upgrade which meant we ended up with a better cabin than the one I was pricing up.

A very pleasant experience.

We spoke to Emily she was very friendly and it was a pleasure to deal with her and ROL.

Pre book Online

25 Sep 2018

The pre-booking service seems to be very oriented to phone booking which I dislike as I am generally travelling and use mobile phone. It also means much time is wasted while waiting on the phone. I would like it to be easier to book directly online. Post booking, the online back up service is excellent.

Thank you for your feedback, unfortunately, due to the availability continually changing on the Ships and all the different booking processes that are required for each individual cruise line, it makes it very difficult to operate an online booking system. I'm glad to hear though that the post-booking process online is excellent. Hope you have an excellent cruise

Overview


Sweep across the heart of Europe on the illustrious Rhine River, one of the great passageways of the continent. From its source in the Swiss Alps to its mouth at the North Sea, the Rhine flows through six countries, introducing you to a collection of unforgettable sights and experiences — from the majestic Rhine Gorge to the medieval splendour of Heidelberg and Rüdesheim. Your time on this ageless waterway begins in the Netherlands, where you’ll enjoy the countless highlights of Amsterdam and the unique customs of Volendam and Edam. Cologne beckons with its exquisite Gothic cathedral, whilst the historic allure of Cochem is yours to discover during a stop in Koblenz. After travelling through the Black Forest, you’ll arrive at Basel, before returning to the UK.
