Traditional cruising

16 Dec 2018

They are very set in their traditional ways, eg set sittings for dinner leaving those at the second sitting only to sit down at 8.30. Service in the FourSeasons restaurant is dreadfully slow in the evening so dinner takes 2 hours. Destinations are good and the staff (Philippine mostly) are great.

An excellent all round service.

ROL Cruise's, as it happens, are based, in my old home town, although I now live in France. I have visited them twice, and I found the whole experience first class in that they were friendly, welcoming and efficient. I would certainly recommend them to others, and use them again.

Very helpful
