Pros
Staff friendly, helpful seats were better than airplane. Some freedom to move about and the dining car was nice.
Cons
The air conditioning wasn’t working very well. The bathroom was kinda gross (not your fault) another customer must have left a mess.. but it would have been nice if there was a way to clean it up a bit before you use it. Free WiFi would be nice too for such a long trip
Tips
Enjoy the ride.
