17 Jan 2019

As usual the staff at ROL listen, react and deal with any query that you have. They are fast and efficient, pleasant in manner, and they care about the customer. Every different person dealt with over many years has been the same. As a Company ROL obviously train their staff well, are particular about the people that they employ, and look after their Staff in such a manner that they, the Staff, are more than happy in going the extra mile to ensure that ROL remain at the top of the game. Particular mention, on this occasion, must go to melody for her assistance. What a star!

I will hopefully continue to book with ROL & advise others to do the same

I have always found the people I have spoken to helpful & efficient Immediate response to my booking is always useful I have occasionally tried contacting cruise lines - not helpful / friendly or successful

Worth using

My booking was made so easy thanks to Katie.

Friendly, knowledgeable advice about the ship and very efficient booking

17 Jan 2019

Didn’t have to wait long to speak to an agent who was friendly, gave set helpful advice and made the whole booking process easy and efficient. Met ROL Reid first last tour on a South Africa cruise who were genuinely friendly and explained the benefits. First time we’ve used you to book will do again. Thanks to Katie who dealt with me.

calm flowing waters

Member of staff introduced herself and told me I can get back to her for any queries. She answered the questions I had and told me rest of the info she had to pass on. For me this is a holiday of a lifetime but she steered me through all the important stuff calmly.

Excellent service

    Lerwick, Shetland Islands

    14 Oct 2020

    Capital and county town of the Shetland Islands, Lerwick was settled by the Norsemen in the 9th century but has prehistoric sites going back thousands of years. Jarlshof, with its remains of Bronze Age, Viking and Medieval settlements is believed by some to be the most remarkable archaeological discovery in Britain.

  • Day 4


    Torshavn, Faroe Islands

    15 Oct 2020

    Capital city of the Faroe Islands, “The harbour of the god Thor”, is a modern town that retains a unique character; although the islands - a green home to birds, sheep and about 46,000 people - would still be recognisable to the early Viking settlers who arrived on their transatlantic trail from Scandinavia to North America.

    Welcome to the world’s most northerly capital! A modern, smokeless city with an old town, lovingly preserved, Reykjavik lies close to an astonishing region of lava fields, spectacular geysers and steaming geothermal springs. Attractions abound, but the Blue Lagoon, with its warm mineral rich waters, and the magnificent Gulfoss Falls should not be missed.
