Cunard Line offers its guests the opportunity to experience the Rocky Mountaineer train when they sail through Alaska aboard Queen Elizabeth ship in summer 2023.

Passengers will be able to extend their Alaska journey with either a 4-night pre-cruise train experience or a 3-night post-voyage package, depending on the sailing date. The 3-night Rocky Mountaineer tour takes travelers on an eastbound journey from Vancouver BC Canada to Calgary, while the 4-night train tour goes the opposite direction and gives an additional day of sightseeing in Banff, with the highlight being a trip on the Banff Gondola.

Rocky Mountaineer Pre-/Post-Cruise Tours:

The 3-night post-voyage tours start at US$2850 per person (double occupancy), available on a couple of Japan-Alaska voyages and 4 Alaskan roundtrips from Vancouver ranging from 10 to 11 nights.

The 4-night pre-voyage tour starts at US$3,250 per person (double occupancy), available on 3 Alaska voyages round-trip from Vancouver BC ranging from 7 to 10 nights.

Guests traveling on the Rocky Mountaineer train (the only passenger rail service on the historic rail route) will experience luxurious coaches and expansive glass-dome windows. 180-degree panoramic views of shimmering lakes, winding canyons, and snow-capped mountains, are offered from all angles. Popular for its GoldLeaf Service, Rocky Mountaineer provides an onboard dining room where vacationers can indulge in culinary delights inspired by the region with a brand-new menu and complimentary bar service.
