Golden Eagle:
Trans-Siberian Express

T

he Golden Eagle train has
made a huge push to offer
true luxury accommodations
with an Imperial Suite (includes butler service and private
touring), as well as Gold and
Silver Class accommodations,
all with en-suite bathroom. The
train also has two dining cars and
a lounge car. It plies the famous
Trans-Siberian route between
Moscow and Vladivostok, as well
as making special tours of the
Silk Road, Russia's Arctic, Iran
and the Caspian region.
The train's "Freedom of
Choice" program offers a range
of options. It appeals to two
types: travelers who, for example,
have already been to Moscow and
don't want to tour the Kremlin
for a second time; and people
who'd simply like a range of activities from which to choose.
New "Freedom of Choice"
activities are added, and others
removed, periodically, so check
with us if you have your heart set
on, for example, hiking around
Lake Baikal, cooking classes in
Irkutsk, cycling or horseback
riding.
Just about everything is included with Golden Eagle: transfers, sightseeing, all meals (with
wine and beer) - even tips. In
all, 58-60 staff members cater to
the needs of 90 to 100 passengers.

All cabins have toilet, sink and
shower, individually controlled
air-conditioning/ heating, safe,
wardrobe, DVD/ CD player and
TV. Beds fold into comfy seating
by day.
Silver Class cabins are 60
square feet, with six compartments per car. There is a small
lower double bed and upper twin
bed. The Silver Class shower occupies the same space as the sink
and toilet; to take a shower, the
passenger draws a curtain around
him- or herself. It sounds odd,
but it works well. Silver is big

enough for a solo traveler, but we
don't recommend it for couples.
Gold Class compartments, at
77 square feet, have five cabins
per car. Gold bathrooms have
under-floor heating and separate
showers with curved, sliding glass
door. The lower bed is doublebed width; the upper is a twin.
At 120 square feet, the Imperial Suite is the train's most
spacious accommodation. It has
a fixed king-sized bed, dressing
table and lounge area as well as a
large en-suite shower and underfloor heating. It boasts two large
picture windows (Silver & Gold
have one). Imperial guests receive
complimentary mini-bar, laundry service, dedicated butler and
room upgrades at hotels (where
available). They can take meals
in their cabin upon request. The
best perk of all: the private guide
and driver dedicated to Imperial
guests on most off-train tours.
The "Romanov Suite" is the
ultimate splurge: an entire train
car for 4-6 guests with 3 cabins:
Imperial, Silver and Heritage,
plus kitchen, lounge/private dining area. Guests enjoy the same
perks as those in Imperial Suites.
DiNiNg & louNgE cArs
The train has two 64-seat
restaurant cars. The "Gold" diner
is decorated with brass, elaborate
indirect lighting and gleaming wood. The "White" diner is
arrayed in shades of white and
cream, with gold medallions
and intricate carvings. A maitre

communication and on-board
service and food.
The bar car includes a piano
and pianist. Bar drinks are included in Gold (standard list)
and Imperial Class (premium
list); drinks are additional for Silver Class passengers. Something's
always up here: a Russian lesson,
singing, a card game. The bar
closes when the last guest leaves.
