Escorted Rail & Cruise

Great Rail Journeys was born from a passion for rail travel, so what could be a more fitting way to cruise with Great Rail Journeys than by arriving in style following a simple journey from the UK to mainland Europe?

Escorted Rail and Cruise

We even have a number of rail options available to you, as some departures make the most of the comfort First-Class rail travel has to offer, while some take advantage of the value for money Standard-Class provides. Whichever you prefer, you'll be escorted all the way from St Pancras International to your ship by your Tour Manager.

Rail offers more comfort, more luxury and more charm than any other form of travel. Why not add more to the experience by upgrading to First-Class? With more leg room, wider aisles and seats which offer more comfort, First-Class travel perfectly complements the stunning scenery you see as you glide through Europe on its excellent railway networks.

For those who enjoy fantastic value-for-money, our Standard Class option retain the same beautiful scenery and glorious landscapes on offer from a rail carriage but for a lower price.
Whichever option you choose, we're still sure that travelling by rail to your port of departure remains as one of the best ways to make the most of your cruise holiday.
