The Danube Express

By Chris Boyle


Top cabin: Deluxe Suite

Key selling points: The Danube Express is the only private train in Central Europe that offers guests en-suite facilities, and when you book one of the Deluxe Suites, you’ll be treated to a plush living area with three chairs by day that converts into a sleeping area with two cozy beds by night. Dark wood paneling, luxurious brass fittings, a full-length wardrobe, and a large picture window complete the space.

Standout service: After one guest requested a beverage that was not available on board, the crew picked it up at the next destination for the guest to enjoy for the duration of the trip.

Style: Classic, by owner Howard Trinder and designer Agnes Zsigmond, 2008

Special amenities: 24-hour cabin attendant, fresh flowers, complimentary mineral water and most beverages upon request, Fusion toiletries, individual air-conditioning
