ROL Cruise customer experience rating 4.7/5 


Based on 1666 reviews

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.

Jak dealt with our booking, which had started off as just an enquiry. He was professional, patient and knowledgeable. After much discussion my husband and I decided to proceed with the booking. Jak took us through our options and constructively helped our decision making.

The Ship


Named after the Scottish home of the Royal Family. Still smaller than most cruise ships today, there are 710 cabins and suites and generous public space for the 1,300 guests on board. The main restaurant is Ballindalloch (named after the Speyside village and castle), while the two other formal restaurants are Avon and Spey – named after two of Scotland’s most beautiful salmon rivers. There’s a comfy pub with occasional live music or comedy, cabaret and shows in the Neptune Lounge, or drift away with a cool drink and spectacular seascapes in the Observatory Lounge.

Balmoral


Launched: January 2008 | Occupancy: 1,350 passengers

Tonnage: 43,537 tons | Length: 715 ft (217.93 m)
