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

Very pleasant sales person. Very knowledgeable about the product and the back up paperwork was promptly sent.

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


Brabant, Fred. Olsen’s first-ever dedicated river cruising boat. Built in 2006, this elegant and comfortable vessel is in keeping with the fleet of our ocean-going cruise ships. Brabant’s bright and spacious public areas and 79 well-equipped rooms and suites, spread across four decks, provide the intimate, home-from-home feel which Fred. Olsen’s guests already know and love. Cruise ship staples such as swimming pools, a number of lounges and on-going activities are not in evidence on board, making way for a comfortable ambience and ample space in which to relax and enjoy the river cruise experience with around 150 fellow guests. Smaller-sized and classically designed, Brabant lends herself perfectly to Fred. Olsen's approach to cruising. Making the most of the boat's size advantage, we can expertly craft simply unforgettable river cruise itineraries which do not only feature some of Europe's most breathtaking river scenery and cities, but also include chances to enjoy journeys along spellbinding, size-restricted sections of rivers and calls into stunning destinations that larger boats can't access. No matter which incredible Fred. Olsen river cruise you choose you’re in for a very special experience aboard Brabant.

Brabant


Launched: January 2006 | Occupancy: 156 passengers
