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

Stacey was most helpful and when we asked whether it was possible to add on an extra few days to our river cruise, she kindly contacted someone in the know and got back to us. Excellent service.

Excellent service

24 Sep 2018

This was the first time I had booked a cruise and a lady I had met recommended using ROL. When I rang a lady called Jo dealt with my booking. She was extremely patient and knowledgeable and really helped with a procedure that I knew nothing about.

    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.
