The service has been excellent.

Arlene was very efficient and very helpful with our booking.

15 Jan 2019

Arlene was very efficient and very helpful. The only issue we have with ROL bookings is that the holidays seem mainly to be from HRW, we would prefer LGW, so it isn’t an easy option for us. Jane Jolliffe

We have purchased many cruises through this company over the years. The staff are always extremely curtious and very helpful. We feel they recognise our loyalty and give us competitive prices for our chosen cruises. Also the follow up emails and paperwork for our cruises has always been punctual and thorough. Well done ROL staff.
