Overview

Start with a stay in Calgary before setting off for two days of rail travel on the Rocky Mountaineer, passing through magnificent scenery in Canada’s west and the Canadian Rockies. The RedLeaf coach service lets you enjoy the views with extended legroom. After disembarking in Vancouver and exploring the city, head to Seattle to board the Norwegian Star to cruise up to Alaska. NCL’s exclusive Freestyle Cruising® means that if want to walk on a glacier- you can. And there’s no problem if you want to watch whales or check out the amazing scenery. But, if you’d rather be winning in the casino or relaxing in the spa, you can do that too. This style of cruising allows you to experience what you want, when you want.
