Holidays By Rail has added two new rail-sail combination itineraries to its US product line for early 2014 departures.

The Southwest Chief & Panama Canal itinerary takes travellers from Chicago across America’s southwest by train to LA. Upon arrival, there is a guided sightseeing tour before transferring to the cruise terminal, where guests will board their cruise ship for a 14-night sailing. Ports of call include Cabo San Lucas (Mexico), San Juan del Sur (Nicaragua), Puntarena (Costa Rica), the Panama Canal, Cartagena (Columbia), and Aruba, concluding in Miami.

March and April departures are available from £2,906 per person land-only, based on double occupancy.

Meanwhile, a California Zephyr with Hawaiian Cruise offers a 19-day break which begins with a two-night rail journeyacross the Colorado Rockies to San Francisco, followed by a 14-night sailing to Hilo, Honolulu, Kauai, Maui, and Ensenada (Mexico).
January through March departures are available with prices starting at £2,567 per person land-only, based on double occupancy.
