Amtrak Silver Service

Pros: It was air conditioned. Cons: Bad speakers couldn’t understand anything seat was uncomfortable rude ill mannered passenger were loud and the staff did nothing after it was brought to their attention bathrooms remained unclean thought there would be some kind of maintenance during all those long stops when we were already behind schedule from the gitgo. And the WiFi sucked Disappointed Very disappointed. Tips: Bring ear plugs expect the crew to do nothing guess where you are and don’t sdronk anything for hours because the bathrooms are filthy.
