Luxury cruise brand Cunard has announced a new partnership with Rocky Mountaineer to offer passengers cruise and rail journey packages in Alaska. Recently it was announced that the Cunard experience will return to Alaska in 2019 for the first time in over two decades.
The Rocky Mountaineer is the world's largest privately-owned luxury tourist train, offering views of mountains and wildlife along its four rail routes that travel through destinations such as Seattle, Vancouver, and the Canadian Rockies in Alberta. Now, travelers can combine a Cunard cruise with a trip through one of Rocky Mountaineer’s routes.
Since 1990, Rocky Mountaineer has welcomed over 2 million passengers. The experience onboard the all-dome ﬂeet oﬀers historic storytelling, fine dining, and a first-hand look at the wilderness in Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest.
Rocky Mountaineer tours are offered pre-and post- voyage and includes either three or five nights’ accommodation and two full days aboard the train. The expedition travels through an array of scenery including the glaciers and snow-capped peaks of the Canadian Rockies, river canyons, mountain passes and tunnels. Highlights include the Continental Divide, Kicking Horse Canyon, Spiral Tunnels and the waters of Hell’s Gate in the Fraser Canyon.
Cunard is the operator of luxury cruise ships Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria, and Queen Elizabeth. All three ships offer gourmet dining, live entertainment, and luxury accommodations in its Britannia, Britannia Club, Princess Grill Suite and Queens Grill Suite staterooms. Cunard offers regularly scheduled transatlantic service between New York and London, and its World Voyage and Grand Voyage itineraries take guests to Europe, North America, South America, Africa, Asia and Australia.
