Tren Al Andalus

By Chris Boyle

Top Cabin: Superior Suite

Belle Époque-Style Cabin / Superior SuiteKey selling points: These recently refurbished suites, within carriages that were built in France in the 1920s and used by the British monarchy, still retain their stunning Belle Époque style, like wood paneling with gold accents. But now they sport all updated amenities such as independent climate control, well-stocked minibars, and full bathrooms.

Standout service: The crew has arranged for dance classes to take place on board, as well as special “show cooking” performances, so guests can watch and interact with the chefs preparing their meals.
