ROL Cruise customer experience rating 4.8/5 


Based on 3094 reviews

Energetic, but just not sure of some of the details when asked.

19 Nov 2018

Generally very good - had to be prompted about a few things, hence the 4 stars rather than 5

Excellent service.

Oriana May 2019 - something to look forward to!

18 Nov 2018

I initially made the enquiry prompted by a Daily Mail advert for a cruise in May 2020. However, after speaking to Gerald and thinking about it, my husband and I decided to book a cruise for next year ie 2019!! Upon contacting Gerald's phone again, it was his day off, but a colleague, Stacey, rang me back and we discussed options for May next year. We have now booked for the Oriana 19 days. Both agents were really helpful, knowledgeable, friendly and confident with their knowledge. Well done!

Spot On.

    Day 3

    Portofino, Italy

    04 Jun 2019

    Located on the Italian Riviera, Portofino's brilliant bay is ringed by lush green hills serenely profiled against the sky. World renowned as a playground for artists and international jet-setters, this charming seaside retreat boasts spectacular vistas of natural treasures such as the Gulf of Rapallo and its coastline.

  • Day 4


    Porto Venere, Italy

    05 Jun 2019

    Porto Venere, Italy, has all the essentials of an idyllic medieval town. It boasts two ancient churches, a 16th-century fortified castle, a bell tower built on the ruins of a Roman temple, even a wistful tale of English writers Lord Byron and Mary Shelley. Lord Byron, the story goes, had a favorite spot on the rocks at the base of the church of San Pietro where he would pause to find his muse; it was also the place from which he would launch his swim across the bay to San Terenzo, where Shelley would be waiting. While the legend is certainly romantic, Porto Venere's breathtaking natural beauty is enough to put it at the top of any traveler's list. Poised on the tip of the small peninsula that extends from the celebrated Italian Riviera, Porto Venere is the southernmost town on the walking trails connecting the five villages that make up the famous Cinque Terre, or five lands. Though not officially a part of the Cinque Terre, Porto Venere should be, and perhaps it would be if it weren't for its slightly removed location. With its sweeping views, brightly-colored houses, terraced gardens and three small islands — Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto — sitting prettily just off its rocky promontory, Porto Venere is so lovely, one wonders why Shelley did not instead make the swim to Byron.

  • Florence/Livorno, Italy

    Day 5-6

    Florence/Livorno, Italy

    06 Jun 2019 to 07 Jun 2019

    Formerly a small fishing village on the western coast of Tuscany, Livorno was reinvented as an ideal Renaissance city at the hands of the sixteenth century House of Medici.

  • Day 7


    Elba/Portoferraio, Italy

    08 Jun 2019

    Perhaps most famous for its exiled inhabitant, Napoleon Bonaparte, the island of Elba is a haven for the inquisitive traveler. Situated between the Northern Italian Coast and the French Island of Corsica, Elba's geographical location, combined with its mild climate, fertile valleys and cliff-fringed coasts, leaves little to be desired. Sweeping views of azure bays and scenic countryside meld with the fascinating history of this island to provide a visit that will not be forgotten.

  • Rome/Civitavecchia, Italy

    Day 8

    Rome/Civitavecchia, Italy

    09 Jun 2019

    Civitavecchia was founded by Emperor Trajan in the 2nd century. Today this port is noted for its fine seafood and attractive monuments. Located 90 minutes away is the Eternal City of Rome. Steeped in 2,500 years of history, Rome was for many centuries the center of Western civilization. It was both the focal point of the Roman Empire and of Christendom. Landmarks such as the Colosseum, Forum, Pantheon, Vatican, Sistine Chapel and Spanish Steps are reminders of the legacy of its rich past.

The Ship


An entirely new class of luxury yachting lifestyle has been introduced with the launch of the Crystal Esprit. Sleek and nimble, the boutique yacht features a shallow draft that allows it to visit secluded harbours, coves and islands that are simply not accessible to larger cruise ships. New itineraries, excursions and activities – all designed with the yacht’s size in mind – enable you to maximize your engagement with the destination in ways not previously possible aboard a ship. The Crystal Esprit features a variety of watersports equipment that can be used directly from the marina deck aft. Snorkel or swim in the inviting waters of the Adriatic or Seychelles; water ski and jet ski, or paddle a kayak in the early morning quiet. For the ultimate experience, embark on a two passenger underwater adventure on the submersible or a high-performance Wider 32 speed boat ride for the thrill seekers. Alternatively, The Esprit’s activity director will help you plan your day on the water or ashore, with a variety of excursions or suggestions for personal discovery.
