A good service !

25 Sep 2018

The lady was very good at answering all my questions. Engaging and very friendly.

Very friendly and efficient

25 Sep 2018

We spoke to Emily she was very friendly and it was a pleasure to deal with her and ROL.

Pre book Online

25 Sep 2018

The pre-booking service seems to be very oriented to phone booking which I dislike as I am generally travelling and use mobile phone. It also means much time is wasted while waiting on the phone. I would like it to be easier to book directly online. Post booking, the online back up service is excellent.

Thank you for your feedback, unfortunately, due to the availability continually changing on the Ships and all the different booking processes that are required for each individual cruise line, it makes it very difficult to operate an online booking system. I'm glad to hear though that the post-booking process online is excellent. Hope you have an excellent cruise

Stacey was most helpful and when we asked whether it was possible to add on an extra few days to our river cruise, she kindly contacted someone in the know and got back to us. Excellent service.

Excellent service

24 Sep 2018

This was the first time I had booked a cruise and a lady I had met recommended using ROL. When I rang a lady called Jo dealt with my booking. She was extremely patient and knowledgeable and really helped with a procedure that I knew nothing about.

Personal attention at all times.

Overview


This ultimate journey with Hurtigruten is described as “The World’s Most Beautiful Voyage” by Lonely Planet. See 34 ports and cover over 2,500 nautical miles, which allows you to explore every inch that Norway’s magical coast has to offer. Any time of year, it’s a voyage like no other. 22 of the ports lie north of the Polar Circle – and you will be given the opportunity to join excursions tailor-made to match your exploration level . On this voyage, you will not only feel like an explorer, you will be one.


With spring comes the return of the warmth and daylight, which is like an infusion of vitamins, kickstarting life along the Norwegian coast. The migratory birds return, meaning the coast is teeming with life. You’ll also visit the beautiful Lyngenfjord, with its majestic mountain backdrop and unique nature. In summer, the long light days seem to energise both nature and people. Even as far south as Bergen, you can experience 19 hours of daylight. Flowers bloom, rivers fill with fish and giant waterfalls cascade towards the ocean, creating a picture-perfect setting for a summer holiday. North of the Arctic Circle, you can experience the Midnight Sun – a natural phenomenon. The autumn sailings include a visit to the incredibly beautiful Hjørundfjord. Majestic mountains surround this narrow fjord, and Hurtigruten offer several excursions that let you explore this spectacular area. Enjoy a beautiful voyage during this season, as the fresh and clear coastal air enhances the intense red and yellow that fi lls mountainsides, hilltops and forests. From the deck, you may see the sharp profiles of the highest peaks sprinkled with the first snow, against the background of an ice blue sky
