CANADA

Showcase Departure

CANADIAN SUNSET

Our Canadian Sunset is a jewel of a trip featuring a rare four-night voyage through Upper Canada and scenic 1000 Islands aboard Canada's only riverboat, the 66-passenger Canadian Empress, at the height of autumn colors.  Also included is scenic train travel, four nights in New York State's beautiful Finger Lakes region, fine hotels, daily sightseeing and much more, concluding with visits to historic Niagara on the Lake and Niagara Falls for visual splendor throughout.

LEARN MORE

For decades, Canada has been our most popular foreign destination and we know Canada better than some Canadians. Whether it is where to get the best Montreal smoked meat sandwich in all of Quebec (Schwartz Deli on Boulevard St Laurent) or the best seafood in Vancouver (Joe Fortes on Thurlow St) we know Canada inside and out. This is why our annual Fall Royal Canadian Holiday with the Queen Mary 2 or our Springtime in the Canadian Rockies program always sells out.

Naturally, this knowledge extends to Via Rail Canada, Canada’s provider of excellent rail passenger service. We know the trains, the accommodations, the services and the stopover points. For superb Canadian holidays founded on decades of experience, we invite you to join us. All Aboard!

Canadian Rockies & Alaska with the Queen

2024 DATES:
July 27 to August 10 – ONCE ONLY!
RATES:
15 Days from $4,995 per person

For summer of 2024, we have a one-time special holiday that is very special indeed since it combines in one stylish and relaxed journey two places on every traveler’s bucket list: Alaska’s stunning Inside Passage including Glacier Bay and the majestic Canadian Rockies, both at the perfect lime of the year.

And since how one travels is often as important as the destination, here too, we offer up two more bucket list experiences: Travel through the heart of the Canadian Rockies on a stunning daylight passage aboard Via Rail Canada’s showcase Canadian with its iconic dome cars followed by Alaska aboard the acclaimed Queen Elizabeth of Cunard Line. Thus, our guests enjoy the last great train in North America along with travel aboard a ship that is the heir to the great traditions established with the original Queen Mary, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Elizabeth 2. While countless ordinary cruise ships offer Alaska cruises, there is only one Queen ship offering it and these two components make our holiday a splendid undertaking.

Our ship is the supremely comfortable Emerald Princess offering acres of open deck space, comfortable staterooms, most with balconies, a huge array of restaurants, lounges and bars and remarkably nice pools, jacuzzis, health club and spa. With an extraordinary voyage to spectacular seldom-visited places, a fine hotel, a train ride, a lobster lunch on Cape Cod along with a professional tour manager with special parties and events aboard ship, we invite you to join us on this most uncommon journey.
