While you enjoy our cruising restaurant service you'll be able to sit at your reserved seat inside the heated cabin and not miss out on any of the beautiful scenery.

    Our Captain made it a point to be back on time for the train’s departure. Barring unforeseen mechanical issues, they will make sure to be back on time. The docks are only 2 blocks from the depot as well.
