The Golden Eagle

By Chris Boyle

golden

Top cabin: Imperial Suite

Key selling points: These lavish sanctuaries are the most spacious cabins on any train in Russia and feature large double beds, a lounge area with a dressing table, a small library, two picture windows, and a private en-suite bathroom with a power shower (no need to worry about wavering pressure) and heated floors. Done up in tones of blue and yellow with rich wood accents, the suites are as regal as they are serene.

Standout service: One passenger discovered she was of Russian heritage and her great-grandfather was buried near Moscow, so the train’s tour manager arranged for her to visit the cemetery during her trip.

Style: Modern, by Russian Railways’ design team, 2012

Special amenities: L’Occitane toiletries, dedicated butler service, complimentary bottle of Dom Pérignon upon arrival, private car and guide for off-train excursions, laundry service

Square footage: 120
