We make a wonderful river cruise or small ship cruise — a truly GREAT cruise!


At Premier River Cruises, we’re very proud of who and what we are, and thought you might be interested in a bit more information about the ONLY agency in North America that specializes solely in the sale of river cruise and small ship cruise vacations.

Thinking about booking directly with the cruise line? That would be a HUGE MISTAKE!
That's right. In ALL cases, we have the same price as the cruise line publishes, but because of our volume, we're sometimes able to provide you with one of our many private, unpublished offers. Our exclusive prices are much lower than even what the cruise lines offer to the public.

Also importantly, you don't want to book with the cruise line as in most cases you're speaking with a call center employee who is most likely a "millennial" who may have never even seen a river ship. Their job is to get your credit card and then move on to the next caller. The cruise line wants to make a booking, the Premier Team wants to create a long-term relationship with you.

It is also a fact, that most cruise line call center employees have very limited knowledge about any destination, anywhere. The Premier Team all have over 20+ years of travel experience. Not only do we have in depth, personal knowledge of destinations around the world, provide one-on-one personalized service, we are YOUR ADVOCATE... we look after every element of YOUR vacation! We also do it far better than any travel agency or cruise line call center. That's why noted travel sites like Cruise Critic, Condé Nast, and the NY Times among many others recommend Premier so highly.
