The cozy seats and panoramic windows will give you the perfect view as the train hugs the rocky coastlines on the legendary horseshoe bend that merges into the cascading mountains.


Once in Seattle, the pre-cruise tour includes stays at a 4 star hotel, great dining experiences at well known local eateries, a visit to the iconic Space Needle and Pike Park Market and a full day visit at beautiful Mount Rainier, a national landmark in Washington, the icing on the cake.


But hold on to your hat, if the pre-cruise tour wasn’t enough, the crème del crème is the 7-Day Alaskan Cruise on the Emerald Princess.  This Alaskan cruise includes some of the region’s must see sights, with four extraordinary ports in Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan and Victoria, British Columbia, Canada and scenic cruising of the Glacier Bay National Park.  After this amazing adventure, you will have just enough time for your flight back to LA to reminisce over all of your photo opportunities.
