Wow, quite an experience, and probably the worst night sleep I had in the whole trip. Very bumpy, and sways vertically and horizontally to rather an alarming degree. Typical train noise I accept, but there was an alarming sound everytime the train took a slight direction change. Rather like a sledgehammer being repeatedly hammered on the bottom of the carridge. Probably happened every twenty seconds. Didn't help that at 3am the stewards rapped on the door to let someone else in when,even though there were plenty of empty cabins, I guess it for convenience for clearing up. And speaking of the stewards, they should try to talk quietly while at work and not shout to each other repeatedly along the corridor throughout the night. There are many excellent and cheaper overnight buses.
The cabins were pretty but it didn't have much space
