Quite simply I wanted to book a cruise and I phoned ROL and they deal with my request efficiently giving useful advice.

Excellent advice even though it was at 8pm at the end of a long, busy day.

21 Feb 2019

We found a cruise to the Hidden Baltic that we were interested in but as it was advertised for 2020 we did not want to book so far in advance. It hadn't occurred to us that there would be the same tour going at Easter this year, but that is exactly what the salesperson suggested she would check. It was available and in the cabin grade that we wanted.Excellent advise

Well done. It is apleasure doing business with you

Measuring 445 feet, the founding members of our luxury European Space-Ship fleet are slender enough to negotiate the waterways of the continent’s most esteemed cities.

Like every ship in the Scenic fleet, these vessels feature spacious luxury suites that are class-leading in terms of size and refinement. Suites and cabins are complete with lavish extras like large private balconies fitted with the pioneering Scenic Sun Lounge screen, as well as a 32-inch Samsung HD TV linked to a Mac computer and complimentary access to a high speed WiFi system. Other in-cabin features include a minibar, luxurious double (or twin) bed complete with pillow menu, and perfectly appointed bathrooms featuring the very latest shower and wet-room technology. Every Scenic European river cruise begins aboard one of our boutique vessels or custom-built Space-Ships, so named for their spacious guest cabins, dining, and entertaining areas. Each of these four-deck Scenic Space-Ships includes numerous dining and sightseeing areas, as well as a lounge and bar area that offers panoramic views. Additionally, guests can retreat to the wellness center, which is equipped with a beauty salon, and massage rooms.
