On this tour we experience the Rocky Mountains, the beauty of British Columbia, two of North America’s favourite cities and a relaxing time at sea - quite a wide range of experiences! We begin in Banff - heart of the Canadian Rockies, for a 3-night stay. Touring highlights here include Lake Louise, the amazing Columbia Icefields and the Banff Gondola ride to the top of Sulphur Mountain for the view of a lifetime.
Then we board the Rocky Mountaineer for a 2-day journey. This is one of the world's most spectacular rail journeys. The train follows the path of the early explorers as it meanders over trestle bridges, follows rivers, passes waterfalls and everywhere, of course, the glacier-clad mountains. Your train attendant will entertain you with interesting commentary and ensure your comfort. There are two types of service aboard the Rocky Mountaineer. Silver Leaf Service includes hot breakfast and luncheon selections served at your seat. You will enjoy the spectacular scenery through the oversized panoramic windows. Gold Leaf Service includes gourmet hot breakfasts and lunches served in the exclusive Gold Leaf Dining Room, and unparalleled panoramic views through the full-length dome windows. Note - Gold Leaf passengers will be separated from the main group during the journey.
The train trip ends in Vancouver (undeniably Canada's most beautiful city), for a 2-night stay. We will enjoy a city tour and a free afternoon to explore Vancouver on our own.
Then we board our ship for a 3-night cruise down the west coast. Our ship, the Royal Princess, is a luxurious floating resort with the Princess Line’s standard of facilities, entertainment, cabin amenities and meal service. A choice of cabin categories is offered.
Our cruise ends in Los Angeles, where we enjoy a city tour, our Farewell Dinner and an overnight. The city of Hollywood glamour is always a fun place to visit.
