Take a journey back in time, to the
fairy tale world of chivalrous Princes and beauteous Princesses. An era of
unimaginable splendour, a period of unmatched opulence. Rediscover the
glittering, golden age through the last of the great extravaganzas - The
Royal Orient, a spectacular concept in transport; an aesthetic marvel of
modern times. A throwback to the bygone days. Capture the essence of the
realm of the Maharajas. An opportunity to experience its princely grandeur;
a possibility of redefining the word pleasure. Thirteen indescribably
wondrous, beautiful, gold embossed saloon cars recreate the resplendent
living of times of yore.
Live out your fantasies in the fashion
of early royal passengers on bridal journeys, state visits and grand hunting
parties. Sink into pink retreats with hot and cold running water, showers
and soft channel music. Restaurant cars with exquisite Indian and
continental cuisines. A luxurious lounge, a library, television and video
entertainment. Most of the travel is done by night; daytime is reserved for
sightseeing and shopping.
The fun comes up when the sun goes down. Unwind at the " Watering
Hole," a bar well stocked with the choicest liquors. Have a drink with
a friend and get into high spirits, as high spirits get into you! And when
you think you've had enough for the day (an unlikely possibility, but
neverthless), retire to the privacy of your chambers, and sleep with the
memories of an era that was, and a world that time forgot.
