Amtrak, the largest passenger railroad service in the US, operates the train from Washington to Miami. The two cities are connected by the Silver Service line, composed of two trains, the Silver Meteor and Silver Star.
The Silver Service is a long-distance Amtrak service connecting New York and Miami and serving many smaller cities, one of them being Orlando. All trains have Viewliner sleeping cars, with the option of booking a smaller roomette or a more comfortable bedroom. Still, unlike the Silver Star, the Silver Meteor has a dining car, which also means that the sleeping cars get inclusive room service.
So there are two options to pick from if you want to sleep on the train:
- The Roomette is, at first glance, a tiny room, but it is very well-used. Different innovative storage options will surprise you at every step. They start with two comfortable recliner seats, which turn into a bed, and a second bunk bed that you pull from the ceiling, making enough space for two people to sleep and have a great view. The older Viewliner cars have a toilet and a sink in the room (one of the surprises under the steps to the upper bunk), which can be tricky if there are two people. The newer cars have toilets and bathrooms in the hallway.
- The Bedroom is twice as big, with a big comfy queen bed and a bathroom in the room (separated by a door). It has all the amenities of the Roomette with a difference of more space and a higher price.
If you opt for the sleeping car, keep in mind that you must book the entire unit alone or with someone. Also, the coach has comfortable reclining seats, perfect for getting some shut-eye, so give it a chance.
