American Queen Voyages has joined forces with Rocky Mountaineer to offer pre- and post-cruise luxury rail packages for the inaugural season of Ocean Victory in Alaska.
The legendary rail experiences through the Canadian Rockies will be available as an add-on for six sailings taking place between May and September 2022.
Shawn Bierdz, chief operating officer of American Queen Voyages, said: “The inaugural expedition season of Ocean Victory in Alaska, made even more special with the Rocky Mountaineer program, is a magnificent add-on to our new expedition experience.”
He added: “This partnership is a wonderful way to kick off American Queen Voyages’ 10th anniversary year, combining the adventure of expedition cruising in Alaska and the romance of rail travel through the Canadian Rockies.”
The Landscapes & Luxury Rocky Mountaineer City Stay Package is available as a six-day pre-cruise option or a five-day post-cruise option for select voyages.
Expedition highlights include a two-day Rocky Mountaineer train experience with GoldLeaf Service, hotel stays in Banff, Kamloops and Vancouver, and a National Parks pass.
“We are thrilled to add American Queen Voyages as a cruise partner, offering our iconic luxury rail journeys through the Canadian Rockies to their guests,” said Jonathan Hope, managing director, sales, for Rocky Mountaineer. “Rocky Mountaineer journeys are the perfect complement to an Alaska cruise, offering guests views of breathtaking scenery while enjoying delicious cuisine, friendly service, interesting storytelling and the social atmosphere from our luxury glass-dome trains.”
Accommodating 186 passengers, new expedition ship Ocean Victory will sail 12- and 13-day journeys through the lesser-known regions of Alaska’s Inside Passage, sailing between Vancouver and Sitka, Alaska.
