Choose this cruise because…
The Views! From your hotel room; from your train, motorcoach or "snowcoach!" - the views of snow-capped mountains; roaring, glacier-fed rivers; and mirror-bright lakes are stunning!
The Easy, Steady Pace. These are relatively leisurely tours; most days are spent viewing the breathtaking scenery from the road or rails.
Accessibility. With gateways at Calgary or Vancouver, these cruisetours begin just a few hours by air from your home city. When combined with a roundtrip Seattle or Vancouver cruise, they're especially easy on your time and budget!
   But consider…
Limited Availability. Most cruisetours are available in conjunction with selected cruises. Book early!
Somewhat Limited Activities. Unlike most Alaska cruisetours, these itineraries offer a little less time for side trips, activities, sports, etc. and you'll spend more time aboard a train and/or motorcoach.
Meals. Unlike aboard your cruise ship, most meals on the land portion of cruisetours are not included in the price.

The Buzz
The Cost of Rail. All Celebrity, Holland America, Radisson Seven Seas and Royal Caribbean Canadian Rockies cruisetours include travel on the highly acclaimed Rocky Mountaineer, which elevates cruisetour prices about 15%. Princess offers both - the train or the less expensive motorcoach alternative. Just be sure you're comparing apples to apples when you're comparing cruisetour prices!
Upgrade Me! The Rocky Mountaineer offers two classes of service. Included in your tour price is their standard, excellent "RedLeaf Service." However, you may want to upgrade to "GoldLeaf Service" for these added benefits: gourmet meals served in a dining car, an elegant dome car, extra onboard attendants and upgraded hotel stays for a portion of the tour. The upgrade raises cruisetour prices by about 15%.
Pre-cruise or Post-cruise? Which is better - a pre-cruise tour or a post-cruise tour? Well, the cruise lines made that decision for you. With the exception of Radisson and Royal Caribbean, most all Canadian Rockies Cruisetours are PRE-CRUISE.

The Details
  The Departure Ports
Calgary. Calgary, of course, isn't a cruise port at all but it's here where most Cruisetours begin. From Calgary you'll work your way west to your ship at either Vancouver or Seattle. (Radisson & Royal Caribbean offer a post-cruise tour that begins in Vancouver and ends in Calgary.)
Seattle. Princess also offers cruisetours that begin in Seattle and travel a roundtrip loop into the Canadian Rockies and then back to either Seattle or Vancouver where you board your ship.

Mid-May through mid-September
Peak season: Late June through mid-August
