River Cruise & Ocean Cruise
Something magical happens when you take to the water - a feeling of joining centuries of travelers, all with a common goal: discovery. Our rail and cruise vacations capture this essence and open your eyes to destinations whose connections to the water have been essential for their growth and development throughout the ages. Follow your ship's course to cities with culture coursing through their veins and places whose scenery leaves you in awe, using your floating hotel, your luxurious ship, as a base. Complimentary excursions in each port of call introduce new and exciting adventures. As the ship sails between these harbors, panoramic vistas of the constantly changing land, relaxing onboard accommodations, and all-inclusive meals and drinks ensure your journey is as comfortable as it is scenic.
Take to the water by the ocean or on a European river. Joining a rail and cruise vacation allows you to combine train travel on land with either of these options, allowing you to choose just how far your journey takes you. In the United States, perhaps travel from Chicago to Glacier National Park aboard Amtrak's Empire Builder before joining a memorable cruise through Alaska's Inside Passage. The Canadian Rockies host incredible rail vacations that pair well with the glaciers and icebergs of Alaska's coast. For a more active cruising experience, follow Europe's famous rivers, including the Rhine, the Rhône, and the Danube, to alluring ports of call, where timeless history and memorable experiences fill each day's itinerary. On a cruise vacation, some of the world's best destinations are within reach.
