As always very pleasant efficient service

Spoke to Auden who quickly and efficiently dealt with my booking suggesting the better cabin. Paperwork came by email straight away.

excellent experience

17 Oct 2018

John was more than thoughtful. He explained everything to me so carefully, wanting me to understand everything thoroughly, which I do, even though the cruise I booked is just under 2 years away! The information I received as a result by e-mail confirms everything so clearly including about visas. It is our first time with P & O and we also had a welcoming e-mail from them which we haven't experienced before. We are going with a different cruise line in January and they were most unhelpful when it came to questions I needed to know about the destinations and visas. What a refreshing difference. It's all down to training, I believe, and ROL employees at whatever level, have always been helpful whenever we have booked with them in the past.

Great

Excellent service you can trust

17 Oct 2018

The staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. They are always happy to answer any questions. The paperwork is sent out in good time and is clear and comprehensive. The packages including transfers are well organised. I am very happy to use ROL time after time and to recommend them to other people.

As above.

17 Oct 2018

Try to ensure all queries are addressed. To the best of their knowledge. Very Disappointed that a cabin offered to me by ROL at a price I could afford was later proved incorrect. Otherwise a good understanding of the cruise. Have used ROL a number of times now.

Excellent PROFESSIONAL CLIENT FOCUSED SERVICE.

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)
