Easy booking and friendly service

17 Jan 2019

Excellent presentation of the cruise and what was included; all very clear and easy to understand.

DISAPPOINTED!!

17 Jan 2019

I have experience of many cruise booking sights. ROL is the only one which is difficult to understand and, indeed, so far I have failed to find any detail of the cruise I have booked and paid for. I cannot even find any reference to the cruise I am on and nothing showed up either when I entered the ship I had booked or the cruise dates. I am also surprised how early you close and was unable to get any guidance as a result. Luckily, I am experiencing the difficulties nearly 4 months in advance of the cruise.

Excellent Service

I would certainly recommend ROL to friends We’ve never been on a cruise before so we valued the extra help. However , we had a problem with the dates we’d booked but the lady was very helpful and sorted it out perfectly

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

17 Jan 2019

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

17 Jan 2019

Roll on next January

The Ship


Columbus became the proud new flagship of Cruise & Maritime Voyages five ship ocean fleet in 2017 taking over the reign from Magellan. At 63,786grt and with an impressive space ratio, she carries approximately 1,400 passengers accommodated in 775 cabins and also accomodates for the solo traveller with 150 cabins allocated for single use. Given her size she provides a very generous, spacious and relaxing feel.

The ship was originally launched under Princess Cruises in 1989 and christened by Hollywood actress Audrey Hepburn on 23rd March 1989. In 1997 she was transferred to the P&O Cruises fleet and was the former Arcadia, where she stayed until 2003 when she was reassigned to Ocean Village, before returning to P&O Cruises in 2010. She was last refitted in 2015 and also underwent refurbishment in April 2017.
