Princess Rail Service travels through some of Alaska's most spectacular scenery. Enjoy our exclusive Denali Express and McKinley Express service, both, which take you directly from your cruise ship to a Princess Wilderness Lodge. So you can enjoy more of your time at Denali National Park and less time en route.
Open-air viewing platforms allow you to step outdoors for the perfect snapshot or breath of fresh air. Dining choices include an elegant dining salon with picture windows and a menu of delectable entrees prepared fresh to your order or a club car serving delicious snacks and beverages in a more casual setting. Add reserved seating, plenty of legroom and friendly, attentive service and the number one choice for an Alaska cruisetour is Princess Cruises.
*Amenities vary by individual rail car.
Ship to Train to Denali - All in One Day Our exclusive ship-rail-lodge connection takes you straight to Denali National Park. While others are still in transit, you'll be enjoying more time at one of our two Denali area lodges where fabulous Princess service meets the real Alaskan wilderness.
Fewer Transfers, Less Time Waiting: Disembark while you're still in the glow of your Alaska cruise. Then step directly from your ship onto your waiting railway carriage. Sit back, read, chat, dine and marvel at the panoramic vistas from the domed observation lounge. Arrive at Denali that same day ready to experience the wonders you've traveled so far to see.
More Time at Denali: Wake up to the sights and sounds of Denali National Park. You'll bask in the pleasure of knowing you've reached your destination nearly a full day earlier than with any other cruisetour company. That means more time to sit by the fire, linger over grilled salmon and soak up the comfort and luxury of the Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge and the Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge.
A Princess Exclusive: Our new luxury rail service direct to Denali will make all the difference in your Alaska cruise vacation. It's one of the many reasons Princess Cruises is the leader in Alaska.
Map of Direct-to-the-Wilderness Rail Service: Princess Cruises exclusive Direct-to-the-Wilderness service allows you to step off your cruise ship in Whittier onto your Princess railway carriage and arrive at your Princess Wilderness Lodge that same afternoon. Or, on southbound itineraries, leave the Denali area and enjoy a direct link to your awaiting cruise ship in Whittier. Because fewer transfers and less time waiting makes for a more relaxing and hassle-free trip.
