    Grand Suites

    On a train where peerless luxury class is the standard, the exquisite Grand Suites command an almost euphoric sense of grandeur. Be swept up in a sense of unbridled indulgence, previously known only to travel royalty of the golden age.

    Our six Grand Suites draw inspiration from the romance, adventure and style of the city’s they are named after—Vienna, Prague, Budapest, Paris, Istanbul and Venice.




    Our elegant cabins have perfected the art of travel. Rich details, including fine fabrics and glossy wood panelling, whisk you back in time.

    By day, Twin Cabins let you admire the passing scenery from plush banquette seating. At night they are transformed into inviting bedrooms with soft lighting and crisp sheets. The ultimate in luxury, Cabin Suites offer extra space to unwind.
