ROL Cruise customer experience rating 4.6/5

Never get best offer price

21 Apr 2018

Every time I ring up for an offer the best advertised price seems to be gone and I have to pay extra. Although the telephone operator was plesant one does feel that they are on commission and therefore charge the higher price.

Thank you for your feedback.  We are booking from a live system with the cruise line, they do have ‘fluid pricing’ which means  the price can go up or down depending on demand, the cruise line will give us the price and this is what you would be charged.

Improvements needed

16 Apr 2018

Original holiday cancelled by operator. Handling by ROL not of the best (difficulty in getting hold of ROL, inconsistency of information, incorrect information etc.) I had to keep riding back to get things corrected. Cancellation department need to sharpen up I think, and recognise that cancellations and rebooking are traumatic and disappointing for customers - not routine!

Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to hear that your cruise was subject to a redeployment of which we understand came as a disappointment to both our customers affected and ourselves. I understand that our Customer Support Team transferred your voyage to an alternative sailing within 5 days of us being notified of this change and we hope you are now looking forward to your sailing in 2019.

I hope they fix the engine vibration before I use the vessel again

14 Apr 2018

The general overall condition of the vessel and the tours and on board facitities were good. The lectures about Concorde and the RAF were excellent. The cruise was let down by the condition of the power plant as there was obviously a big problem with the engines/properller shafts shafts as they vibrated by such an amount they really upset the dining experience as the dining room was at the rear of the vessel

First class service.

13 Apr 2018

Pleasant and very helpful service throughout initial enquiiry and then actual booking. I would have no hesitation in recommending ROL to others.

Thank you for such a wonderful review! It is a delight to hear you have had a smooth journey throughout the entire process!

Excellent personal, efficient service

13 Apr 2018

Service overall was very good. We got the cabins we requested on the cruise we wanted at a discounted price due to having ROL points. However, was disappointed to find out that the ROL operative had misinformed me regarding the use of a particular benefit to gain additional OBS with P&O. P&O informed me that we could not use this benefit as we had not booked direct with them. I made a point of enquiring about this and was told that all I needed to do was speak to P&O after booking. This was not the case.

Thank you for taking the time to speak to me today, I hope you are happy now it has all been resolved, hopefully for future bookings our star rating can be improved.

Overview


Go in search of stunning scenery, amazing wildlife and once-in-a-lifetime experiences on this epic 14 night exotic voyage aboard Boudicca, hopping between some of the most beautiful, culturally-diverse and captivating islands in the Indian Ocean. This incredible journey begins in Port Louis, a city renowned for its mix of cultures, religions and ethnicities. Sample the diversity of the Mauritian lifestyle, with time to taste local teas in the beautiful Chinese Pagoda, stop by the local stamp museum, explore the colourful central market and much more before you set sail. Alternatively you could tour to Casela National Park and walk with lions; or head to the south of the island, a showcase of breathtaking natural wonders including the Trou-aux-Cerfs Volcano and the ‘Seven Coloured Earth’ sand dunes. Heading north, an abundance of ‘must-do’ experiences will await you in the Seychelles. With almost two days on Praslin Island you could join an incredible Robinson Crusoe Adventure tour from Praslin Island in search of huge Coco de Mer nuts and Aldabra Giant Land Tortoises, one of the largest tortoise species in the world; then from Mahé discover the beautiful, uninhabited island of Moyenne on a memorable catamaran cruise. Sandwiched between these calls is a magical cruise by Silhouette Island at sunset – a simply unforgettable spectacle. During a day-long stop at the French island of Mayotte, you will have the opportunity to observe the breahtaking fauna and flora of the Indian Ocean's largest lagoon. You could look out for colourful fish, vibrant coral reefs and even dolphins from aboard a glass bottom boat; or even go snorkelling in the crystal clear waters and see the wonders of this natural aquarium up-close. Amazing plant and animal life awaits your discovery in Madagascar too, with two days to discover the best of this world-famous natural wonderland. Hell-Ville is perfectly placed for tours to Nosy Be’s tropical, 740-hectare Lokobe National Park; while Amber Mountain National Park is within easy reach of Diego Suarez. Both of these calls offer you the chance to see wonderful wildlife such as lemurs, chameleons, geckos, boa constrictors and much more in their unspoilt natural habitat. Before returning to Mauritius, you can also savour the sweeping volcanic landscapes of Reunion Island on a hike or exhilarating helicopter tour from Port Reunion.

The Ship


Boudicca was the heroic warrior queen of the British Iceni tribe. And we like to think our truly British, world class cruise ship lives up to the name. Up to 800 people can enjoy a cruise on board Boudicca – not the thousands to be found on most ships these days – so there’s plenty of space for everyone. And our cruise ship is small enough to reach shores many rival cruise ships cannot. Inside, indulge yourself at the Tintagel and Four Seasons Restaurants. Lounge around on the Lounge Deck, or in one of our two Jacuzzis. Or splash around in one of our three pools. And when the sun’s shining, our tasty poolside buffet will hit the spot. There’ll be days and nights to remember on board Boudicca.

Boudicca


Launched: February 2006 | Occupancy: 880 passengers

Tonnage: 28,388 tons | Length: 674 ft (205.44 m)
