Rail & Cruise Holidays in the USA
Many people do not like flying. So, when you arrive in New York on your cruise ship, consider taking Amtrak to the other coast and continue the cruising experience. Your three night rail journey to either, Los Angeles, San Francisco or Seattle will go via Chicago, where you can spend a few nights and enjoy the delights of this wonderful city. Or just one night on the train down to New Orleans to see some of the old plantations and antebellum homes.
Then combine your rail journey with a cruise to some of the exciting and interesting places in the Pacific or Gulf of Mexico. From Seattle cruise up Alaska’s Inside Passage and enjoy the stunning vistas of majestic mountains, calving glaciers and glistening blue waters as your luxurious ship glides serenely along. Or Los Angeles for a warm few days as you sail to the golden sandy beaches of Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta. The fiftieth state also awaits if you cruise due west toward the extraordinary beauty of Hawaii and the famous beach of Oahu, Waikiki. Sit in the beach bar of the Royal Hawaiian hotel and sip a Mai Tai as the sun sets over the tranquil Pacific.
