Pleasant, knowledgeable, efficient staff

26 Sep 2018

Early days as I have only just booked the cruise, and it is my first experience of using ROL. The initial contact with reservations and subsequent securing of the requested cabin by a pleasant, helpful and efficient ROL travel adviser gives me confidence in the company.

Perfect

Emily was a very competent and patient operative who went through many scenarios till we found the holiday we wanted. Would buy again and recommend to others.

Friendly, helpful and efficient.

Perfect service as always

I spoke to Gerald who was really knowledgeable and help me with my decision on what room to pick. He also gave us various options of costs for the different dates on offers, freely offering his direct dial so I could go away and look at options before making a decision to book.

Try them, you'll love them :)

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.
