There are 3 different dining cars onboard and as we were having 3 main meals throughout our 36 hours on board – lunch,dinner and brunch and we were able to sample all 3.
Bar car – this stays open as long as there are clients there. On occasions it has to be temporarily closed at frontiers for customs formalities.
An Agatha Christie cocktail is a must ! When asking what the ingredients were I was advised there were 12 different ones which is the number of countries the train travels through.
Life on board the Orient Express.
There are 3 different cabin types on board:
Single cabin – one lower berth
Double cabin – upper and lower berths
Cabin suite – two inter-connecting double cabins
On our journey from Venice to London there were only 76 passengers on board and we were extremely lucky to be upgraded to a cabin suite. Thank you Santino and the train manager.
All cabins have their own wash basin cabinets. A toilet is located at the end of each carriage.
There are no shower or bath facilities on board.
There is also a beautiful luxury travel collection of 9 items created by Temple Spa exclusively for Venice Simplon Orient Express in your cabin.
