Stunning Alaska & US Rockies - No Flying

Take this unique opportunity to cruise the Alaskan coastline without having to fly!  Cross the Atlantic both ways between Southampton & New York on the iconic Cunard Queen Mary 2. Then travel right across the USA in a cosy Amtrak sleeper train between New York, Chicago & Seattle.

On board Amtrak, you will experience the comfort and relaxation of full-board sleeper 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.

Stunning scenery and breathtaking wildlife encounters continue on your Alaskan cruise from Seattle. Cruise like a celebrity on the fabulous Celebrity Soltice to witness glaciers calving into the ocean, the flash of a whale's tail breaking the surface of a flat calm island studded sound. You may be lucky enough to spot dolphins racing along with the bow of the ship and bald eagles soaring high above on thermal currents. The ports of call offer a wonderful mix of  memories too - such as panning for gold in the Klondyke, wild moose foraging on the hillsides, bears catching their daily salmon fix in a fast moving river or rustic Ketchikan  propped up on stilts against the back drop of pine forrested slopes.
