Lola is owner and Manager of Cruise Holidays of Oakville.


Lola Vassiliadis, MCC

Aside from being a mother and grandmother to three I have been blessed with a career that  has afforded me hours of joy and wonderful memories.

I entered the world of cruise travel in December of 1992 after graduating with honours from the Mississauga School of Travel and Tourism. For the next five years I was with The Cruise Professionals. After leaving The Cruise Professionals an opportunity presented itself that turned out to be one of the best decisions I have made during my working career. And that was to join the Cruise Holidays family.

We opened our doors in downtown Oakville in September of 1997 and proudly hung our Cruise Holidays sign. I started with myself and one employee and we have steadily grown over the years to a team of ten.
