Historic Cabin During Day

Venice Simplon-Orient-Express Historic Cabins

The most common and most affordable type of cabin onboard the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express is the Historic Cabin, formally known as the Twin Cabin. Although the smallest of all cabins, it is still plenty large enough for two people, and with a large window, it offers a light and airy space.

The main difference between the Historic Cabin and all other cabins onboard is the conversion from day lounge to bedroom. Grand Suites have enough space for a lounge with a separate sleeping area, whereas the Historic Cabin must be converted between the two. The stewards convert Historic Cabins from lounges to bedrooms while passengers are at dinner.

Passengers are free to wander the train and lounge in the bar car if they wish, therefore the time you spend in your cabin may be minimal. If you’d rather converse with fellow passengers and explore the train throughout the duration of your trip, a Twin Cabin to store your luggage and sleep may be the ideal option.

Historic Cabins do include a sink with running hot or cold water but no en-suite, however there is a WC at either end of the sleeping carriages. All suite cabins including the suite twin and suite double have en-suite facilities, the Historic Cabins are true to their name and comply with the traditional cabin setup.

Historic Cabin prices start at £3,530 per passenger

Venice Simplon-Orient-Express Single Cabins

Now due to the upgrade of the Cabin Suites and Grand Suites, unfortunately, it is no longer possible to book a Single Cabin aboard the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. Solo travellers are still able to book, of course, but there is a single occupancy supplement, which in effect is like paying for two passengers. If you are looking to book as a solo traveller aboard the train, please get in contact as we may be able to reduce the cost of the single occupancy charge.

Cabin Suite

Venice Simplon-Orient-Express Cabin Suites

A Venice Simplon-Orient-Express Cabin Suite is essentially made up of two connected Twin Cabins. The result is effectively one room for sleeping and another for lounging. In short, a Cabin Suite is double the size of a Twin Cabin.

Ideal for those who wish to spend more time in solitude, a Cabin Suite is a popular option. Offering both a sleeping and lounging area means no need for conversion by the stewards and allows one to take a nap if they so wish during the day.

A Cabin Suite benefits from two large windows for added light and an interconnecting door that can be opened to fully make use of the extra space. If you are considering a longer journey onboard the Venice Simplon Orient Express, a Cabin Suite may be a wise choice.

Cabin suites will be replaced on the 15th of June 2023 by the Suite Twins and Suite Doubles, details of which are noted below.

Venice Simplon-Orient-Express Suites (double or twin)

The new double suite and twin suite cabins are to be made available for journeys departing after the 15th of June 2023. These new suites are inspired by the landscapes of which the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express passes through and feature beautiful designs famed by Art Deco designers Lalique and Dufrene. The suites compliment the current Historic Cabins and Grand Suites and are the perfect in-between option.

With a private en-suite bathroom, featuring an intricately designed mosaic floor, you will have the added comfort of your own private facilities. All the new suites also come with complimentary amenities, which include slippers and kimono to take home.

There are though a limited number of suite twins and suite cabins onboard, therefore if you are interested in a journey and would like to book one of the suites, we recommend doing so as far in advance as you possibly can.
