    Я собираюсь в круиз (поездку/путешествие на корабле) по Волге до Нижнего Новгорода.

    круиз=cruise=boat trip=путешествие на корабле, but cruise (круиз) is usually a sea trip, not along a river.

    1. Я собираюсь ехать на круиз
    или
    2. Я собираюсь крейсировать по волге
    или
    3. Я на кораблике буду отдыхать по Волге, ну, как круиз допустым.
    1. отправиться в круиз (во-первых, не "на", а "в", а во-вторых "ехать в круиз, ехать в поездку" do not sound well (redundant, like "oily oil"))
    2. Only if you are very big. And you are a ship. You must also have a few cannons on board.
    3. отдыхать на Волге

    Крейсировать doesn't mean you're going on a cruise, it means you're travelling on a battlecruiser! Well, why not?

    *поплыть

    But I'd say "Я собираюсь в круиз по Волге до Нижнего Новгорода".

    And if you say "поплыть" to a real sailor he'll reply that "плавает" только го*но, а корабли "ходят" ;)
