My trip was very enjoyable, traveling for a funeral. I was able to recline my seat and rest before I arrived at my destination.

Booking through Wanderu was great! It was my first time traveling on Amtrak and will definitely be splurging for business class in the future. Our train was on the warmer side with poor wifi connection, but overall a good bargain for what we paid!
