Yes, it's everything you expect and others' descriptions are accurate - attentive staff, outstanding food throughout (how they do it in tiny kitchen galleys beats me). We were delayed on the coach going under the Channel because of a train failure, but that was not the VSOE's fault. At least we knew we wouldn't miss our connection and indeed the Orient Express train was waiting for us, staff stood to attention outside, when we finally got to Calais Station. Dinner on the first night was a highlight. People made good effort to dress for the event. The journey on the second day through the Swiss Alps was sensational. But don't expect to get much sleep in the overnight bit because of the train noise and constant stopping/starting. No-one seemed to get murdered and there was no sign of James Bond on the train, but life is full of these trivial disappointments. Wouldn't do it again; it really is a once in a lifetime experience, but glad we did it.
