Major Marine Tours is excited to offer a brand-new special for those who like to experience the best of the best. The GoldStar Getaway, our new premium package, combines the best experiences with the Alaska Railroad, Major Marine Tours, and Harbor 360 Hotel in one great package – all for $90 off per person. The GoldStar Getaway package includes delicious meals and complimentary adult beverages so you can have a Seward getaway like no other.

Alaska Railroad GoldStar Train Service

Your GoldStar Getaway will begin with a scenic ride from Anchorage to Seward aboard the famous Alaska Railroad in a GoldStar railcar. You will view the incredible beauty of the Turnagain Arm and Kenai Peninsula through the glass-dome ceilings, or get some fresh air on the exclusive upper-level viewing platform. GoldStar passengers enjoy spacious forward-facing seats and a delicious meal served in the full-service dining room. Breakfast will be served on your way to Seward, with menu items including sourdough french toast, biscuits and gravy with reindeer sausage, and Snow Bird Barley hot cereal. On your return to Anchorage from Seward the following day you will be served a satisfying dinner featuring local ingredients, with entree choices such as chopped salad with Alaska smoked salmon, fresh Arctic cod with vegetables, penne pasta with vegan meatballs (vegans and non-vegans agree: they are delicious!), or slow-braised pot roast. You can toast to your ultimate Alaska experience with two complimentary adult beverages per trip, served at the private GoldStar bar.

Major Marine Tours Kenai Fjords National Park Cruise

Experience the best of Kenai Fjords National Park on a full-day glacier and wildlife cruise. The GoldStar Getaway includes our most popular cruise, our 6 Hour Kenai Fjords Wildlife Cruise, or you can upgrade to our 7.5 Hour Kenai Fjords National Park Cruise for free. View wildlife such as humpback whales, orca whales, Steller sea lions, puffins, otters, and more. Visit a towering tidewater glacier on the 6 hour cruise, or visit two glaciers on the 7.5 hour cruise. Both cruises feature onboard National Park Ranger narration and our famous Alaska Salmon & Prime Rib Buffet, served onboard during your cruise. The meal is included as part of your GoldStar package, along with unlimited soft drinks. Take advantage of our full bar with one complimentary adult beverage per adult. Partake in local and domestic beer, wine, or one of our specialty cocktails such as our Glacier Margarita or Hot Otter. Cheers!

The 6 Hour Cruise can be taken on either the first or second day of your package. Due to the train schedule, the 7.5 Hour Cruise can only be taken on the second day of your package.

Deluxe King Harbor Balcony Room at Harbor 360 Hotel

After your day of adventure you will be ready to kick back and relax at Harbor 360 Hotel. Our newly-renovated Deluxe King Harbor Balcony Rooms feature Harbor 360 Hotel’s best views. Take in the sights of the Seward Small Boat Harbor and Resurrection Bay from the comfort of your private balcony. These rooms feature deluxe amenities including a king bed, sofa sleeper, large-screen TV, and microwave. Enjoy a soak in the indoor harborside hot tub while the kids play in Seward’s only hotel pool. The next morning, start the second day of your GoldStar Getaway off right with a hearty complimentary breakfast.

Explore Seward

The Alaska Railroad arrives in Seward at 11:05am on day 1 of the package and departs at 6:00pm on day 2, giving you plenty of time to explore Seward when you are not cruising. Visit the Alaska SeaLife Center, do some shopping in the Downtown and Harbor shopping areas, or embark on one of the many adventures that Seward has to offer including hiking, kayaking, fishing, and more.
