Felt that we were being taken. Seriously and ROL would do their best for us

25 Apr 2019

Very helpful. Made sure they understood our likes and dislikes

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

Book Early for Christmas & New Year

25 Apr 2019

I Wanted to get away for Christmas it was a shock to find Many of the Cruise lines were all ready fully booked in April But ROL found a Cabin for me and Southampton easy to get to from London its a Inside Cabin but I will not be alone for Christmas

ROL Cruise package deals - good but high deposits

25 Apr 2019

ROL Cruise offer cruises or cruise packages and advertise in newspapers and magazines. The prices they offer are actually more similar to other sites than the fantastic headline discounts suggest, but they are customised to make a proper holiday around cruise only deals. Customer service do make call-backs and take the time to explain the options and exclusions. Expect high deposits, eg. my offer required a 30% deposit and we are 18 months ahead of departure.

Excellent communication knowledge and extremely polite and helpful staff

24 Apr 2019

I would recommend Rol to anyone. Staff so polite and helpful a pleasure to deal with

Informative , friendly and very helpful booking.

24 Apr 2019

Please note this is Rhonda Smith replying, I booked for both parties. John, was very helpful, lots of info and rang back to confirm availability etc. made everything run smoothly.

Liam was excellent calm and we sorted an acceptable cabin reasonably quickl
