Luxury cruise line Cunard is once again offering Rocky Mountaineer train trips through the Canadian Rockies on all Alaska cruises this summer, following a pandemic-enforced break.

The partnership between the cruise company and Rocky Mountaineer was first announced in 2018 ahead of Cunard’s 2019 Alaska season.

A three-night post-cruise trip or a four-night tour before embarking on Queen Elizabeth in Vancouver will be available, with packages going on sale tomorrow (Tuesday January 24) at 9am.

The three-night rail tour takes an eastbound journey from Vancouver to Calgary, while the four-night tour goes the opposite direction and gives an additional day of sightseeing in Banff.

Prices for the three-night tour start at $2,850 per person, while the four-night trip leads in at US$3,250 per person.

President of Carnival UK, Sture Myrmell, 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.”

Cunard’s newest ship, Queen Anne, will set sail on May 3, 2024 for its seven-night maiden voyage to La Coruna and Lisbon.
