Pros: How comfortable it was. The train ride was smooth and we got to our destination at the exact time that was set. There was a dining cart available to all and the items were average priced. It felt luxurious compared to air and bus travel. It was quiet and respectful to all. The staff was funny and interactive with everyone it felt so refreshing and familiar almost like the world used to be. Very impressed with our complete service. Cons: Maybr more options in dispose trash after the dining cart, such as little trash bags by the seats or even complimentary individual wipes for the food tray area to keep it clean for everyone. Tips: The food cart maybe far from the cart your in so be prepared to walk in between while moving, or find a place closer especially if you have kiddos. There's wifi and a charging plugs so you can bring electronics, but make sure you bring head phones because there are all quiet carts you must respect while you ride. Book early to get great deals.
