Grand Circle USA

This magnificent holiday of a lifetime is a unique opportunity to visit the whole 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 on a grand circle route from the Big Apple, down the east coast and through the Deep South to the Big Easy - New Orleans. Then along the Gulf of Mexico and the Southern border through Texas and across New Mexico to the West Coast and Los Angles. From L.A cross the desert following Route 66 and the Santa Fe trail through cowboy and Indian country to Chicago. Your grand circle adventure is completed with an overnight journey skirting the Great Lakes and travelling though upstate New York back to Manhattan. The old Cunard slogan "Getting there is Half the Fun" has never been so true setting you up perfectly for your tour of the USA with no jetlag and concerns about luggage restrictions on the way home.

CHOOSE from a range of durations throughout the year from 26 to 36 nights!

 

(*Please note as a result of recent Amtrak train schedule changes the 15th December 2021 departure requires a direct flight between Chicago and New York towards the end of the itinerary. This is included together with a generous checked baggage allowance  plus the transfer between the New York airport and the hotel).
