Pros
IconNice staff
IconEnough free places
Cons
IconDefective toilet
IconWeak wifi
Overall, the journey was good. We even made up for the few minutes of delay at the end. As the journey was in the morning, there were still some free seats and probably because it was the first stop. The train got very full during the journey. We were seated in a quad and had power sockets. The wifi worked, but was very slow and weak at times. The staff and especially the driver, who introduced himself very pleasantly, were very nice and friendly. The price was a bit expensive when you consider that there is no seat included and it was "only" a 3-hour journey. The seats were OK. Not particularly comfortable, but OK for the duration of the journey. Only the "pillow" was defective, which is why I just sat down on the seat next to it.
