Cunard resumes Rocky Mountaineer add-ons

Rocky Mountaineer train trips through the Canadian Rockies are being offered as add-ons to Cunard Alaska cruises this summer after a break due to the pandemic.

A three-night post-cruise trip or a four-night tour before embarking on Queen Elizabeth in Vancouver will be available, depending on the sailing date.

The three-night rail tour takes an eastbound journey from Vancouver to Calgary, the four-night tour goes the opposite direction and gives an additional day of sightseeing in Banff.

A partnership between the cruise company and Rocky Mountaineer was announced in 2018 ahead of Cunard’s 2019 Alaska season. 

Following a pause in operations due to the pandemic, Cunard is now offering the Rocky Mountaineer packages for its 2023 Alaska season from tomorrow (Tuesday) at 9am.

The three-night tour starts at $2,850 per person based six sailings, while the four-night trip leads in at $3,250pp on three pre-cruise departures.  

Sture Myrmell, president of Cunard parent Carnival UK, said: “We are thrilled to be able to provide guests an opportunity to combine a luxury cruise on board Queen Elizabeth that takes in the finest views of Alaska by sea, with a journey on the Rocky Mountaineer taking in the stunning scenery of the Canadian Rockies by train. 

“With the exceptional service and fine dining, Rocky Mountaineer is a wonderful addition to a Cunard voyage and we know our guests will be delighted to have an opportunity to enjoy the spectacular surroundings in style.”
