Hi everyone, Thanks to everyone here you helped me pick a trip to take my son on (https://discuss.amtraktrains.com/threads/help-planning-upcoming-trip.74422/#post-791235). Now that I've booked the trip, and gave it to him as a birthday present a few days ago, we're having fun researching the outing. To summarize we're taking the Crescent (19) from PHL to NOL, staying in NOL overnight and hopping back on 20 the very next morning. this is truly all about the trip and not the destination. We're very excited and will have lots of questions to come. To start... - Our trip is in June so we have time to build up excitement and plan - Our rooms are Car 1911 Room A and Car 2011 Room B - Anyone with experience on this trip? - One reason we picked it is b/c of the dining experience. I also found a menu online but not sure if its the latest. Looked awesome. - We get on in PHL at 3:55. Looks like we wont have lunch but we'll have two dinners possibly as the train arrives in NOL at 7:32 the next day? - The videos we've seen the cars look a bit newer/nicer than those on our only other trip (Autotrain) - Are these newer/refurbished cars Thanks again for everyone's help, anything else you can add is appreciated!
