ROL Cruise customer experience rating 4.7/5 


Based on 1209 reviews

The person I spoke to was clear, helpful and very professional.

21 Jul 2018

The offers were explained clearly and I found it a pleasure to choose the right holiday for me.

Very good service

21 Jul 2018

I did not expect to pay the full amount when booking, this was a problem as the credit card we use has a low limit and was used close to its limit. We are just back from the Baltic and intended to pay off the card. This caused a delay in us confirming the booking but was handled very well by Natasha.

Appalling!

21 Jul 2018

This booking was NOT supposed to have any communication by email! This was told to you by EMMA who did the booking. This has wrecked the surprise that this was to be! You were told after I received a confirmation on my email shortly after booking not to send anything else.Then I receive THIS! THIS IS A DISGRACE!!!!!

A caring, well organised company.

21 Jul 2018

Excellent service from Natasha. Would recommend the company to anyone. Will continue to use FO.

Always a good service

21 Jul 2018

I've used ROL several times before and have always received efficient and good service from them. They phone back when they say they will and will look into any queries that you may have. Cruise Miles is a good incentive to use ROL for another booking. I would recommend them to others booking a cruise.

Quick and easy.

21 Jul 2018

Everything was fine and the booking was handled efficiently. Promised callbacks came within minutes and everything was done with the minimum of fuss.

First class service.

21 Jul 2018

The experience from start to finish was first class. Ensuring that every bit of our forthcoming experience would be to our needs and personal requirements. Also giving us really good advice and the benefit of her knowledge and expertise. I felt that I could really put my trust in the representative because of the way that she handled every detail of our booking. Thank you.

Simple and efficient service.

21 Jul 2018

Excellent and helpful. Booking done with minimum of fuss.

Realistic and helpful

21 Jul 2018

My questions carefully considered and realistic and helpful suggestions made. An excellent booking outcome too. Thank you!

I've never had any problems with Readers Offers in booking cruises.

21 Jul 2018

Very professional and helpful.

Prepared to spend time sorting out a problem

21 Jul 2018

I needed to rebook after original cruise was cancelled. ROL spent a lot of time arranging new booking and ensuring all requirements were met. I was pleased with the time and trouble taken

Very helpful

20 Jul 2018

I spoke to a very helpful young lady when making my booking. Answered all my questions with patience.

Overview


Enjoy an unforgettable festive fortnight packed with sun, sea, sand and an abundance of authentic Caribbean experiences, sailing from one spectacular paradise island to the next aboard Braemar. Your friendly home-from-home at sea will be waiting for you to embark in Barbados, from where – after settling in on board – you’ll sail to stunning St Lucia. With breathtaking attractions such as the soaring Twin Pitons; bubbling hot springs of the Soufrière Volcano; and the Diamond Botanical Gardens and Falls within reach, a call into Castries will ensure a memorable start to your Caribbean adventure. Then in Grenada, not-to-be-missed experiences include exploring the gorgeous lush landscapes of Grand Etang National Park – a haven for a wealth of fascinating fauna and flora – and a ride along the scenic coast aboard the legendary Rhum Runner boat. You’ll then arrive at Curacao on Christmas Eve, for the chance to take in UNESCO-listed Willemstad’s colonial architecture and pretty pastel-fronted houses in the sunshine, before enjoying a magical Christmas Day at sea. Combine traditional food, drink, fun and festivity with hours of soothing sunbathing on board Braemar, while the friendly, attentive staff take care of everything for you – a simply unforgettable occasion. It’s back on dry land on Boxing Day, visiting the beautiful island of St Kitts. An undoubted highlight here is the world-famous St Kitts Scenic Railway, regarded as one of the greatest train journeys on earth. The next morning your ship stops at Road Town, gateway to uncovering the famed pirate history of Tortola. There’s a chance to explore the island’s myths and legends on a scenic boat tour, followed by an exciting open-top safari bus adventure. A diversion to Gran Turk follows, for the chance to make the most of the Caribbean sunshine on white-sand beaches, bathe in warm, crystal-clear waters or even snorkel tropical reefs, before ending the year in style in St Maarten. Perhaps unwind on the beach; discover historic sites such as the Willem and Amsterdam Forts; or tour the island on the back of Harley Davidson. No matter what you choose to do during the day; watching the New Year’s fireworks at midnight will be an experience you won’t forget. Finally, after a day at sea to catch your breath, you’ll return to Barbados for chances to admire floral displays at Hunte’s Gardens, go in search of Sea Turtles and much more.
