17 Aug 2018

Searching for the right cruise and cabin taking the time to give us the best possible deal and giving advise on the ship and destination to suit us we travel with my sister who uses a single occupancy cabin and so it’s a double booking and we can’t always get the cabins together he took the time to give us several options and we were very glad he did . We have used ROL often and can say without hesitation we have never had a problem either in the booking tickets and solving any problems we might have . Thankyou for doing what many high street travel agents fail to do .

It could not have been better service

The agent was polite helpful and had travelled on the ship we were considering and another we had already used, and so was able to advise us on the differences.. The booking was efficiently taken

Good proffesional service. Highly recommend

16 Aug 2018

We were told that the offer was fully booked when we asked for an outside cabin after getting a flyer of said cruise. We were dealt with respect and understanding of our disappointment. However the phone call we received shortly after was the best news that she was able to offer us a place as she had been given a few more cabins. We think how very kind she was to think of us. Thank you very much looking forward to the trip.

The Ship


New in 2017, Emerald Radiance navigates the beautiful Douro, giving guests the chance to enjoy the famous Portuguese climate and the beautiful vineyard-strewn panoramas. Emerald Radiance boasts extensive, exceptional open-air public spaces – so guests can enjoy a barbecue on the Sun Deck or take a plunge in the open-air pool. The Emerald Radiance will explore Portugal’s Douro region, navigating the eponymous river Douro. Dissecting some of Europe’s most beautiful vineyards and wine-producing villages, the river Douro evocatively stretches through beautiful backdrops on either bank. Fittingly, the bespoke Emerald Radiance has been lovingly designed and built to complement the jaw-dropping scenery unfolding before the ship’s bow.
