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 with a 2-night stay in Los Angeles. The city of Hollywood glamour is always fun to visit. In L.A. we will enjoy a city tour and a visit to the Getty Museum.
Then we board our ship for a 3-night cruise up the west coast. Our ship, the Star Princess, is a luxurious floating resort with the Princess Line’s standard of facilities, activities, entertainment, cabin amenities and meal service.
We disembark in Vancouver (undeniably Canada's most beautiful city). In Vancouver we will enjoy a morning city tour and an afternoon at leisure to explore on your own.
Then we board the Rocky Mountaineer - one of the world's most spectacular rail trips - for a 2-day journey. 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 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.
