Cunard to offer legendary Rocky Mountaineer train tours for guests visiting Alaska this summer.

23 January 2023 [Southampton, UK]

Luxury cruise line Cunard is offering guests joining Queen Elizabeth in Alaska this summer the opportunity to experience the world-famous Rocky Mountaineer train through the spectacular Canadian Rockies.

Depending on their sailing date, guests will either be able to extend their Alaska voyage with a three-night post-cruise Rocky Mountaineer package or a four-night tour before embarking on Queen Elizabeth in Vancouver. Packages will be on sale from Tuesday 24 January at 9am UK time.

While the three-night tour takes guests on an eastbound journey from Vancouver to Calgary, the four-night tour goes the opposite direction and gives guests an additional day of sightseeing in Banff, where the highlight is a spectacular trip on the Banff Gondola.

Guests travelling on the legendary Rocky Mountaineer train – the only passenger rail service on this historic rail route – will experience expansive glass-dome windows and luxurious coaches. Breath-taking 180-degree panoramic views of snow-capped mountains, shimmering lakes and winding canyons are offered from all angles. Renowned for its GoldLeaf Service, Rocky Mountaineer offers an on board dining room where guests can indulge in culinary delights inspired by the region with a new 2023 menu as well as a full complimentary bar service.

Sture Myrmell, President, Carnival UK, said: “We are thrilled to be able to provide guests an opportunity to combine a luxury cruise on board Queen Elizabeth that takes in the finest views of Alaska by sea, with a journey on the Rocky Mountaineer taking in the stunning scenery of the Canadian Rockies by train. With the exceptional service and fine dining, Rocky Mountaineer is a wonderful addition to a Cunard voyage and we know our guests will be delighted to have an opportunity to enjoy the spectacular surroundings in style.”

Queen Elizabeth’s summer in Alaska is set to be a season full of adventure and discovery, with an Insights Programme featuring Bear Grylls and a host of other iconic explorers. Other highlights on board include the Alaska Afternoon Tea, the elegant Ice White Ball and a new dining concept called Frontier, which offers a taste of Alaska.
