Great service

18 Feb 2019

They answered the phone quickly and found out the minute of the cruise when asked. She gave her direct line and either remembered us or kept good records so that after 4 telephone conversations (while we thought about it) we concluded the deal. Very good

Great service and cruise miles as well.

Great service and cruise miles as well.

good booking proceedure but let down by non follow up of complaints .

18 Feb 2019

Never came back to me regarding previous cruise complaints against celebrity cruises. celebrity have eventually replied re my e mail to rol and celebrity, but nothing from rol. booking experience quite good but have certainly lost a star because of their non reply as stated.

This is the first time I have booked with ROL and so far, no complaints!

18 Feb 2019

The cruise consultant acknowledged my enquiry and confirmed she would telephone the following morning, which she did. As I require an accessible cabin there were none available on my first my choice of cruise, but one was found on a similar cruise sailing a month later. This was booked, and confirmation was emailed within a couple of hours, with the promise that all the paperwork would be received within five working days.

Great Purchasing Experience

18 Feb 2019

Kelly Boherty was the agent that helped us make the cruise purchase. We are in the USA so she followed up from Joy Magnussen who said she would have someone call us on Saturday morning and Kelly did that. She went over the details as we had never purchased a cruise from ROL. She was very detailed, had answers to our questions and was very pleasant. Hopefully the follow up with cruise information and the cruise itself will be as pleasant an smooth.

Excellent

Show less Capable of comfortably accomodating up to 929 passengers, Braemar has a uncrowded, intimate feel, with friendly staff providing a fantastic level personal, attentive service and catering to your every need.
