easy to arrange, and a welcome change to actually speak to a human being instead of loads of press options

Professional and helpful service.

Hello, the travel consultant that I spoke to was very helpful in finding the cruise that I required at the right price and she was able to answer all of my questions with professional and helpful answers. Nothing was too much and the ease of booking was so simple.I hope that the cruise itself is as plain sailing. This is a trip of a lifetime for my 60th birthday, so my husband and I are really looking forward to it .

Your representative was very good answered all my questions professionally.

Quite simply I wanted to book a cruise and I phoned ROL and they deal with my request efficiently giving useful advice.

Excellent advice even though it was at 8pm at the end of a long, busy day.

We found a cruise to the Hidden Baltic that we were interested in but as it was advertised for 2020 we did not want to book so far in advance. It hadn't occurred to us that there would be the same tour going at Easter this year, but that is exactly what the salesperson suggested she would check. It was available and in the cabin grade that we wanted.Excellent advise

Well done. It is apleasure doing business with you
