Cunard cruises to Alaska

Combine a cruise with a train trip – My favorite!

With the return of Cunard cruises to Alaska in 2019, the cruise line announced its partnership with luxury rail Rocky Mountaineer.  It has been nearly 20 years since Cunard cruises to Alaska ended.  And soon they’ll be back.

Cunard cruises to Alaska will mostly be 10-nights, with round-trip departures from Vancouver, beginning on May 31, 2019.

Rocky Mountaineer railroad is the only train line that covers these majestic and historic routes in British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest.  A visitor favorite since 1990, Rocky Mountaineer has welcomed over 2 million passengers.  A train trip onboard Rocky Mountaineer’s all-dome fleet offers an up-close  look at  the vast and untouched wilderness of the Pacific Northwest.
