Extremely comfortable trip. Comfortable seating. Very quiet. good service and good clean amenities. Larger baggage areas in each compartment would be great

despite having seats allocated, the same seats were already occupied by people who also had been allocated same seats. There is not enough room for luggage and most train stations in France do not have lifts or ramps so luggage is a real problem especially if you have not packed light

My husband and I bought first class tickets because they were on sale. Initially there was a group of people who were not supposed to be in the first class cabins and they were talking loudly. When the inspector came, they had to go to their "rightful" seats and there was quiet. Everything was good except that on the end leg, there was no water in one of the toilet cubicles.
