Pros: I hadn't been on one of these in years. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience. The Staff are incredibly friendly and down to earth. One guy with a big beard was hysterical and graciously took pictures for several groups on the train. Cons: Nothing. It was glorious! Pros: I hadn't been on one of these in years.
