The Skeena conveys Comfort Class, and during the peak period Totem class. In Comfort Class, one can buy food from the food cart and there is one power point in the carriage. There is also access to a microwave and hot water, for passengers who bring their own food. Totem Class is treated to three meals a day (hot dinner), as well as access to the dome car. Staff offer commentary throughout the journey.[citation needed]
It offers connections at Prince Rupert between the BC Ferries service to Port Hardy, the Alaska Marine Highway service to points in southeast Alaska, and a connection at Jasper to the Via Rail The Canadian to Vancouver and Toronto.
