EXCELLENT.10/10

26 Apr 2019

First time booking with ROL. We were very pleased with their excellent service when booking our holiday. 10/10. Would definitely recommend.

Fast and competent

26 Apr 2019

Fast and competent.

So far so good.

26 Apr 2019

They provided a no-nonsense response to my telephone booking and payment of deposit albeit I was surprised at the amount of this, ******* for 18 months or so, but I suppose this does mean that I only have the remaining two-thirds to pay in 2020?

Excellent job

26 Apr 2019

Friendly, professional member of staff who spoke clearly and handled the whole booking experience smoothly and efficiently.

Helpful and friendly booking process

26 Apr 2019

The booking process was straightforward and Lee was very helpful, friendly and patient. I booked a Hurtigruten Northern Lights cruise for Nov 2020 which is a long way off. The deposit (£699 per person) was much higher than I'd expected but at least it will mean less of a balance to pay later!

Booking made easy.

25 Apr 2019

This was the first time we have used ROL although we have had many emails and postal information. Booking was surprisingly easy. We had left booking rather late because of my health. Completed by James McAulay on behalf my wife Sheila who was away at present. Sheila spoke on the phone but I was sitting beside heer.

Great service !

25 Apr 2019

They got back to me when they promised and dealt with all my questions.

Excellent service.

25 Apr 2019

I usually consult ROL when purchasing a cruise. I have always found the consultants knowledgeable and helpful. Access by telephone has been improved and I had no problems with this consultation. Service was crisp, professional and friendly.

A pleasant experience

25 Apr 2019

A very friendly and pleasant person with whom to deal with at ROL. Went out of his way to give us excellent service.

  • Rome (Civitavecchia)

    Day 1

    Rome (Civitavecchia)

    27 Sep 2020

    Hidden piazzas, opulent baroque churches, classical ruins at every turn. The best of Italian fashion. Countless art galleries, gardens and palaces. If ever there was a place to return to and delve deeper, it’s Rome.

  • Day 2


    Sicily (Messina)

    28 Sep 2020

    Just three miles off the coast of southern Italy's mainland is the port town of Messina on the island of Sicily. This bustling town has a complex history with roots in Greek mythology but, because of an earthquake in the early 1900s, it's a relatively young city architecturally. Since the majority of the city has been rebuilt or refurbished within the last 100 years, you'll find the town has an interesting blend of new architecture and old styles.

  • Valletta

    Day 3

    Valletta

    29 Sep 2020

    Lined with Baroque buildings and enclosed within its sixteenth century city walls, it’s almost as if time stands still in Valletta. With 7,000 years of history just waiting to be discovered, the Maltese capital is a dream to explore.

The Ship


There's never been a cruise ship like this. Enjoy one-of-a-kind features like an ice skating rink, the Royal Promenade and a rock-climbing wall.

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.
