About the cruise holiday: Kick off the holiday with a 3-night stay in Las Vegas, amidst the glitz and glamour of the famous Strip. A flight from here brings you to Rapid City, where the Western USA and Canadian Rockies tour begins with a visit to the Mt. Rushmore National Monument and Crazy Horse Memorial.
Head west across the high plains and visit an old cowboy town in Wyoming before crossing over into 'Big Sky Country', Montana. Visit the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument in the Crow Nation before arriving in Billings; the explorers Lewis and Clark camped nearby in 1806. You'll follow their trail along the Yellowstone River in Yellowstone National Park, stopping at highlights including the Mammoth Hot Springs and Old Faithful Geyser -- keep an eye out for wolves, elk, moose, bison and bears.
Crossing the US-Canada border, travel north along the Macleod Trail to Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump -- a UNESCO World Heritage Site -- before arriving in Calgary, where you'll explore the city. Next, take in the "sublime scenery" (Rough Guides) of the Icefields Parkway in Banff and Jasper National Parks, stopping at the azure waters of Lake Louise. Having visited Canada's most picturesque National Parks, you'll then head to Vancouver to embark on the cruise.
Finish your holiday on a majestic note with the 7-night Alaskan cruise, which sails through the Inside Passage and visits Icy Strait Point, the Hubbard Glacier -- the largest calving glacier on the North American continent, it routinely calves off icebergs as high as 10-storey buildings -- Juneau and Ketchikan, before returning to Vancouver for your flight home.
