Rail and cruise vacations are natural companions, each offering a unique and relaxing way to explore a variety of destinations and to see unmatched scenery. The combination of the two creates an adventure to remember in one well-planned luxury vacation package. Cover longer distances by train, glide along famous rivers or through vast oceans by ship and discover picturesque ports of call throughout a rail and sail adventure.
Your rail experience can include travel aboard iconic long-distance trains in the USA, complete with overnights in classic sleeper cars; an all-daylight rail experience through the Canadian Rockies or a memorable trip on Europe's sleek high-speed trains. There are even more choices when selecting the cruise experience for your rail and cruise vacation. Step aboard a state-of-the-art ocean cruise liner for a cruise through Alaska's Inside Passage or the Hawaiian or Caribbean Islands. Your ocean cruise may venture to Mexico, the Panama Canal or the Mediterranean, or perhaps it will take you across the Atlantic aboard the luxurious Queen Mary 2. Enjoy all the perks of big-ship cruising, ranging from spa services, shopping and lectures to multiple dining venues, dancing and casinos, while experiencing the beauty of wide-open water.
Choose a train and river cruise vacation for an intimate cruising experience with an exclusive number of guests. Explore America's Great Lakes, steamboat down the Mississippi, meander along the St. Lawrence River in Canada or discover the famous waterways of Europe while making stops in the delightful storybook towns and imperial cities that line the shores. Well-appointed staterooms provide excellent views of the changing scenery; however, there are also decks and window-lined common rooms throughout the ships that capture the passing beauty. Other amenities to look forward to include gourmet dining, inclusive shore excursions and impeccable service.
