Cunard Line has you covered if an Alaska cruise has ever left you wanting more. This summer, the luxury brand will once again collaborate with Rocky Mountaineer to offer rail extensions on its sailings to the Last Frontier.
Passengers on Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth ship can ride the train through the Canadian Rockies between June and August by adding a three-night post-cruise package or a four-night trip ahead of their sailing, depending on the date of their cruise.
“We are excited to partner with Rocky Mountaineer so our passengers can enjoy the spectacular scenery and Alaskan wildlife in the utmost luxury both by land and sea,” Cunard’s VP, Commercial – North America, Matt Gleaves, said in a news release.
Cunard’s Rocky Mountaineer tours take you where?
Rocky Mountaineer takes guests east from Vancouver, British Columbia to Calgary, Alberta during the three-night option. The four-night trip takes the opposite route, with extra time for exploring Banff, where passengers can enjoy panoramic views from the Banff Gondola.
The train also provides stunning scenery, with glass-dome windows providing 180-degree views of lakes, canyons, and mountains. According to the release, the train also has a dining room on board that serves locally-inspired cuisine and complimentary bar service. Along the way, guests stay in hotels.
What are the prices for Cunard’s Rocky Mountaineer packages?
The three-night package that follows the cruise costs $2,850 per person based on double occupancy. The add-on is available on two Japan-to-Alaska itineraries, one of which is 25 days long and the other is 16 days long, as well as four Alaska cruises sailing round-trip from Vancouver. These voyages last between 10 and 11 nights.
The four-night train journey begins at $3,250 per guest based on double occupancy. This option is available on three Alaska round-trip sailings ranging from seven to ten nights from Vancouver.
Hotel stays, meals on board, and other amenities are included in the packages. Travelers can make reservations on Cunard’s website or by calling 1-800-728-6273.
