River Cruising


For many people, the first thing that comes to mind when they think of taking a cruise is cruising on the ocean, but there are many reasons to consider a river cruise. River cruises are always on smaller boats typically with 120-160 passengers, which means a more intimate experience with less crowds. While the experience on the ship is always fantastic, the focus of river cruises is immersing yourself in the culture and experiences of each port and you tend to spend time on land everyday. At Cruise Holidays of Nanaimo, we are your river cruise specialists having enjoyed many river cruises ourselves. If you've never been on a river cruise or are looking for more information, please drop by or give us a call and we'll be happy to help.
