Destinations

Since its launch journey to Istanbul in 1883, the Orient Express has served a host of different destinations.

Venice, Belgrade, Vienna and Bucharest were all part of its early network. Sister services led to Berlin, Baghdad and Cairo. The two World Wars, revolutions and the Cold War were to affect these routes: while new cities were added, some were swiftly axed.

Big changes were to transform Europe in 1989 with the fall of the Iron Curtain. This has led to the return of several of the train’s earliest routes. The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express has now added Prague, Budapest, Krakow and Dresden to its list of destinations. And in 2010 it went to Amsterdam on a private charter for the very first time.
 
Cabins
Traveling in private cabins impeccably restored to their former glory, passengers are assured of a truly unique travel experience complemented by the very best personal service.

Each cabin has an original washbasin cabinet with hot and cold water, and at night-time becomes a comfortable bedroom, complete with soft towels and crisp linen. Cabins convert in moments from daytime seating to a luxurious bedroom, all performed by cabin stewards whilst passengers enjoy a gourmet dinner in the restaurant car.

Double Cabins feature a single cabin room, whilst our Cabin Suites feature the ultimate luxury of two inter-connecting cabins. Toilet facilities are available in each carriage, luxuriously appointed and maintained to the highest standards by our stewards.
 
Dining
Dining on board the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express is an unforgettable delight. All dishes are freshly prepared on the train by skilled French chefs, with the finest supplies taken onboard during the train's journey.

Lunch, dinner and brunch are served by waiters in one of the three individually styled Restaurant Cars: Cote d’Azur, Etoile du Nord or L' Oriental. Breakfast and afternoon tea are served to passengers in the comfort of the train's luxury cabins.

Table d'hôte meals are included in the fare, while an à la carte menu and 24-hour compartment service is available additionally. The Maitre D' will come to your cabin to take your lunch and dinner reservations in advance of your meal.
 
Our Carriages

The carriages of the Venice Simplon-Orient Express are individually designed and each has played a significant role in the golden age of luxury train travel during the 1920s to 30s. Every carriage has been lovingly restored to its former glory, with $16 million spent on recreating one of the finest luxury travel experiences the world has ever seen.

Each of the carriages has its own personal story, from transporting European royalty across the continent and being shot at during World War II, to being caught in a snow drift for 10 days and inspiring the events in Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express.
