Want to book a once-in-a-lifetime voyage, discover exciting new itineraries or simply require impartial travel advice? Look no further than ROL Cruise.

In 1995, Peter Beadles founded Reader Offers Ltd. Offering a range of land-based holidays, Reader Offers predominantly promoted and sold through regional newspapers. As the company expanded, Peter began to consider selling cruise as a project. He took a chance and placed a full-page advert for Queen Elizabeth II in the Evening Standard. It was here that the UK’s No.1 Independent Cruise Specialist was born.

Today, you may know us as ROL Cruise. For more than 25 years, we have been working with leading cruise lines to ensure our loyal customers enjoy the best new experiences the world has to offer with delectable cruise holidays. Want to book a once-in-a-lifetime voyage, discover exciting new itineraries or simply require impartial travel advice? We’re here to help your every need.

We’re lucky enough to work alongside many leading cruise lines. Take Celebrity Cruises, for example, the first cruise line to introduce a cantilevered, floating platform to their Edge-class ships. Then there’s Hurtigruten, pioneers in hybrid-powered cruise ships who have followed in the footsteps of epic explorers with their popular Northwest Passage expeditions. And let’s not forget Cunard, who completed the very first world cruise and have been defining sophistication for more than 175 years with their exceptional ships. We’re certain there’s a cruise line for you.

With many cruise lines comes the opportunity to visit many incredible destinations. What could be better than the picturesque vistas, pure white sand beaches and turquoise waters of the Caribbean? Flee the humdrum of everyday life as you dive between each enchanting island; scuba dive in St Lucia, catapult yourself into the colourful culture of Cuba or beach walk in The Bahamas. Meanwhile, on a cruise to Norway, you can chase the green and purple hues of the dancing aurora borealis. An experience that appears on many bucket lists (it is so easy to understand why when they sway across the sky), witnessing the beauty of the Northern Lights is truly magical.

Why not explore the coastal beauty, medieval towns and fascinating architecture of the mystifying Mediterranean for a love affair that will last a lifetime? Or what about a voyage closer to home? Discover the hidden gems along our beautiful coastline on a British Isles cruise for a closer look at the rich history and enthralling culture sitting quietly on our doorstep.

Would you like to head off on the holiday of a lifetime? An adventure cruise is the ultimate way to experience the most amazing places on earth. Tick items off your bucket list and create memories that will last forever. Perhaps you’d prefer a more relaxed affair? Ultra-luxury and six-star cruises bring you the finer things in life and provide the opportunity to enjoy opulent surroundings and exquisite dining.

Enjoy great conversations, amazing sights and unique experiences that will stay with you forever. Sail the seven seas solo on a singles cruise – an ideal getaway for solo adventurers, offering a safe and secure environment to visit new destinations, experience different cultures and make lifelong, like-minded friends. Maybe you’re new to cruise altogether and want to discover a new way to holiday? There’s a cruise for that, too.

With so many fantastic cruise agencies to choose from, you may be wondering why you should book with us?

A word from ROL Cruise ambassador, Jennie Bond

‘The past few months have been testing for everyone, and I think they’ve left many of us mentally and physically battered. In my view, the best panacea for all that stress - if you can possibly manage it – is a holiday. But you definitely need to travel with a company you trust and which has a proven track record. ROL Cruise has a solid 25 years of experience, they are fully ABTA and ATOL bonded, and they will reward your loyalty with Cruise Miles®.

Presenter Jennie Bond is an ROL Cruise brand ambassador

‘There’s something about a cruise holiday which gets into your blood and, during the pandemic, I’ve really missed my days at sea. I can’t wait to get back on board, relax into that cushion of luxury, and head off to explore the world again.

‘If, like me, you’re a bit of a cruise addict, you’ll need no further convincing.
