If an Alaskan cruise has ever left you wanting more, Cunard Line has you covered. The luxury brand is once again partnering with the Rocky Mountaineer train company to offer rail extensions on its Last Frontier sailings this summer.
Between June and August, passengers on Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth ships can ride the train through the Canadian Rockies by taking on either a three-night post-cruise package or adding a four-night tour before sailing, depending on the date of the cruise . .
“We are delighted to partner with Rocky Mountaineer so that our passengers can enjoy the spectacular scenery and Alaskan wildlife in the utmost luxury both on land and at sea,” said Matt Gleaves, Cunard’s VP Commercial, North America, in a press release.

Cunard previously partnered with Rocky Mountaineer in 2019. Other cruise lines, such as American Queen Voyages, have also worked with the company.
Where do Cunard’s Rocky Mountaineer cruises go?
During the three-night option, Rocky Mountaineer takes guests east from Vancouver, British Columbia to Calgary, Alberta. The four-night tour does the opposite, building in extra time to explore Banff, where passengers can enjoy the sweeping views courtesy of the Banff Gondola.
The train also offers plenty of striking scenery: glass dome windows provide 180-degree views of lakes, gorges and mountains. The train also has an on-board dining room that serves locally inspired food and free bar service, according to the release. The guests stay in hotels along the way.
How much are Cunard’s Rocky Mountaineer packages?
The three-night post-cruise package starts at $2,850 per passenger based on double occupancy. The supplement is available on two itineraries from Japan to Alaska – one is 25 days long, the other is 16 – and four Alaska cruises sailing round-trip from Vancouver. These sailings are between 10 and 11 nights.
