Ocean & Rail Escorted Cruises

The beauty of ocean cruises with Great Rail Journeys is that they combine two of the most relaxing and enjoyable forms of transport - train and boat - to create the perfect carefree holiday. Ideal for first-time cruisers and experienced travellers alike, our wide choice of unforgettable ocean cruises offers a rail-cruise holiday to please everyone.

Of course, railway travel is still a fundamental ingredient of an ocean cruise holiday with Great Rail Journeys. Whether you're sprinting to Paris in the comfort of the Eurostar before embarking on a sunkissed Mediterranean cruise or journeying by steam train on one of the most scenic railways in Britain as part of our Scottish Islands cruise holiday, travel by train still plays an important and memorable role in our ocean cruises.

Looking for mega-pools, spas, theaters and wide-open water views on your cruise vacation?  Ocean cruises are your best bet. The largest of the ship types, ocean cruises generally tend to offer more activities such as spas, casinos, theater performances or even rock climbing. In addition, because of their size, ocean cruises can travel further than other vessels - affording sweeping view over the water and giving passengers a true sense of adventure. 

On our unique rail & ocean cruise itineraries, you'll have the opportunity to experience two fantastic modes of transport in one vacation!

“A very well organised and enjoyable holiday, accommodation in hotels and on board ship was clean and comfortable. The experience was enhanced by being part of a friendly group of like minded people. The balance of organised excursions and free time meant you didn’t feel that you were just part of the group.
