Excrellent!. Highly recommended

26 Sep 2018

Informative, helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We have used ROL before and each holiday has lived up to our expectations. I cannot praise Gerald enough. So polite, efficient and helpful. He is a credit to the company.

Give an exceptional service, professional and always a good deal

25 Sep 2018

They always give us a great price and give excellent customer service. We have booked many cruises with ROL and the service they give is professional and customer friendly.

Planning ahead. We wanted a trip which would dispel the cold winter blues.

25 Sep 2018

The young lady who came on the phone was brilliant. Not only helpful but gave us information which helped us to make our decisions. She was polite but not pushy. And, more to the point, she was patient even when we um'd and ah'd over the finer details.

xetremely helpful

25 Sep 2018

they were patient and helpful as we wanted a flight from the North of England rather than London. This necessitated some contact with the cruise company but the agent was more than willing.

Booking onloy at this stage

Good overall. Shame the cabin we booked (& confirmed) wasn't available - and we have gone further forward on the ship. We'll see..........................

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.

The cruise was very well organised and service on board was very good.the entertainment was of a particlarly good quality.

A good service !

25 Sep 2018

The lady was very good at answering all my questions. Engaging and very friendly.

Very friendly and efficient

25 Sep 2018

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

The Ship


Cruise ships were once famous for their style and charm. And our Black Watch cruise ship is a hark back to those days, when quality and service were taken for granted. Sleek and intimate, with cabins and suites for 804 people, Black Watch has a warm welcome waiting for you. Black Watch was voted 'Best for Entertainment' in the 2012 Cruise Critic 'Cruisers' Choice UK Awards’*. Only UK cruisers voted, and they were especially impressed with our service: “they consistently went the extra mile”. So, be captivated by the entertaining cabaret at the Neptune Lounge,and fire-up your taste buds for a treat at the Glentanar Restaurant. Or, share a relaxing drink over panoramic views across the ocean in our Observatory Lounge.
