Roller furling main

Hello,
I am about to book a charter yacht for next summer in Greece. This will be my first time sailing without a skipper. The boat is an Oceanis 393 and is listed as having "roller furling main". I have never sailed with one and don't know anything about them. I would appreciate any comment some of you may have about them, their reliabilty and usefulness.
One other thing I would appreciate hearing about. How much chain should I expect to have on the anchor rode on a charter yacht of this size?
Thank you
