Pros
The staff was friendly.
Cons
The conductor was not transparent and did not keep us in the loop about what was going on. Once we started moving again we averaged about 15 MPH the rest of the way.
Tips
Do not take trains in the US. They are unreliable and inefficient. Could have driven from NO to ATL, back to NO, and back to ATL in the amount of time this trip took. Very disappointing. All in all our average speed was 25 MPH over the course of a 19-hour train ride.

Pros
Riding on a train was an experience that most people must have! The temperature in the train was nice and cool.
Cons
Departure times.
Tips
Bring a pillow and blanket! The seats can be set back pretty far, so if you have more than a couple of hours to kill, you usually can get pretty comfortable.

Pros
It got us from point A to point B.
Cons
This was an over night trip. Sleeping was difficult due to noisy neighbors and bright lights which stayed on all night.
Tips
We were looking for a nostalgic way to travel on one leg of our trip. If you have the time and want a good deal on travel, then take a train. It was just not what we were expecting.

Pros
Good seats, plenty of legroom. Clean bathrooms.
Cons
Our trip was over 3 hours late arriving with no communication from staff. Staff were generally rude and abrupt -not all, but on several occasions. Passengers drinking alcohol on the train escalated to abuse of other passengers and physical assault on 2 staff members wit...More
Tips
Consider if you are comfortable with the possibliity of drunk passengers being noisy, rude and possibly threatening in the carriage. Take snacks as the cafe car was frequently closed.

We recommend you bring a book or download a movie just to play it safe. Amtrak Crescent WiFi is generally best used for surfing the web, checking emails and chatting with friends, you shouldn’t count on the WiFi to binge watch your favorite show.

Yes, there are power outlets onboard Amtrak Crescent train trips. You can generally find one or two plugs per row of seats, so be a good traveler and check if your seat neighbor might want to charge up their devices as well. With the onboard power outlets, you can charge both a computer and USB devices with a power outlet USB converter that typically come with most phones and tablets. Since Amtrak Crescent might sometimes use replacement train vehicles, not all trips are guaranteed to have power outlets. We recommend to bring a power bank to charge your phone for all trips over 2 hours, just in case.
