ROL dealt with my booking promptly, and Aiden was very professional at handling my questions, and requirements. The additional £100 discount was better than booking direct with FRED Olsen, and clinched our business

The 138,000-ton, 3,114-guest Explorer of the Seas offers more space for every guest – plus enhanced staterooms, expanded dining options and exceptional recreational facilities.
