Grand Alaska & US Rockies - No Flying

This magnificent holiday of a lifetime is a unique opportunity to visit the northern cities of the United States of America without having to board an flight at all. Set sail from Southampton on board a classic Cunard voyage to New York and end your tour on a seven night voyage back home.  Travel by full board sleeper train to Chicago taking in Upper New York state and skirting the great Lakes. Change trains in Chicago and board the Empire Builder Rail Journey: On board, you will experience the comfort and relaxation of train travel while witnessing some spectacular scenery. From the beautiful Cascade Mountains or the spectacular Columbia River through Glacier National Park, high desert and Big Sky country, the plains of North Dakota, past the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, to North Dakota to the sights and sounds of Chicago, the Empire Builder® offers one of the most majestic routes in the Amtrak system.

Contrast icy glaciers with mountain vistas, stunning wildlife with incredible museums and the home of Starbucks® Coffee with the home of the Pizza Pie. Wonder in awe at the Space Needle as it lights up the Seattle sky line at night, explore the floating town of Ketchikan and marvel at fascinating works of art, contemporary and old, at The Art Institute of Chicago.

If there is only one international city on anyone's must-see list, it has to be New York City. The bright lights, sights, and shopping delights beckon to create the buzz that is Manhattan - the memory of which stays with you for a long time afterward. Think of Central Park, 5th Avenue, the Empire State Building, Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, Wall Street, Macy's, Tiffany's, NYPD, yellow cabs, Broadway and the Rockefeller Centre. These are the ingredients that come together in a whirlwind of sights, sounds, and experiences.
