Rail & Cruise
Rail and cruise vacations are natural companions, each offering a unique and relaxing way to see a variety of destinations and unmatched scenery in one well-planned package. Cover longer distances by train and glide along famous rivers or vast oceans by ship, discovering colorful ports of call throughout the journey.
Your rail experience can include travel aboard North America's iconic long-distance trains complete with classic sleeper cars, an all-daylight rail experience through the Canadian Rockies, or Europe's sleek high-speed trains. And there are even more choices when selecting your cruise experience.
Step aboard a state-of-the-art ocean cruise liner for a cruise through Alaska's Inside Passage, the Hawaiian or Caribbean Islands, Mexico, the Panama Canal, the Mediterranean or cross the Atlantic onboard the luxurious Queen Mary 2. Enjoy all the perks of big ship cruising including an assortment of amenities from spa services, shopping, and onboard lectures to multiple dining venues, dancing, or an evening at the ship's casinos.
Choose a small river cruise ship adventure for an intimate cruise experience with an exclusive number of guests. Explore America's Great Lakes, steamboat down the Mississippi, meander along Canada's St. Lawrence River, or discover Europe's famous waterways and the delightful storybook towns and imperial cities that line the shores. Well-appointed staterooms provide excellent views of the changing scenery from the comfort of your private cabin, gourmet dining, inclusive shore excursions, and impeccable service.
