Norwegian Sets Sails With Rocky Mountaineer

The internationally recognised Rocky Mountaineer train has announced a major new global partnership with Norwegian Cruise Line, which will offer even more Rail and Cruise holiday options in 2014.

Connecting with Rocky Mountaineer’s new Coastal Passage rail route out of Seattle, as well as train departures from Vancouver, guests are invited to experience a stunning rail journey through the Pacific Northwest and the Canadian Rockies before or after their Norwegian cruise to Alaska. 

There are five different Rail & Cruise holiday packages available through Rocky Mountaineer for travel in 2014. Each itinerary offers a unique opportunity for travellers to make the most of their visit to Western Canada and Alaska by linking the Rocky Mountaineer with cruises on three of Norwegian’s ships: Norwegian Jewel, Norwegian Pearl and Norwegian Sun.

One of the most popular packages to add a Norwegian Alaskan Cruise to is the Canadian Rockies Highlights & Coastal Passage. Including the cruise, this holiday ranges from 13-14 days in length depending on the direction selected. Guests can enjoy a seven-night round-trip cruise from Seattle on Norwegian Jewel or Pearl plus a Rocky Mountaineer rail journey in either GoldLeaf or SilverLeaf Service. 

Whether departing from or arriving into Seattle, guests on board the train are seamlessly connected to the Canadian Rockies with stays in such renowned destinations as Vancouver, Banff and Lake Louise. An unforgettable helicopter flight over the towering Canadian Rockies tops off this genuinely amazing holiday experience.
