The Dome Car rocks!!! Well worth the extra money for the views and ambiance. Don't understand all the other comments about the rough ride - were they expecting dinner on the QE2? It's a train! No spills or culinary mishaps on my trip with 5 other world travellers - including 3 cynical New Yorkers - who all cleaned their plates. Car was about half-full on a Tuesday evening. No obnoxious fellow diners so we were able to chew the scenery and food in relative peace and quiet. We were in the full length dome car - the Renton. We looked at the other 2 dome cars which are considerably smaller and more intimate. Huge thanks to our servers, Krista and Zach, for a great evening!
Loved being on a train, but it does rock and roll so much that it's difficult to walk around safely during the trip. It's probably not a great idea for seniors who can't risk a fall. Also, note that they don't have high chairs.
If you have an iron stomach (in terms of motion sickness), it's a fun trip. The food was great, and there was plenty of it. The service was fabulous. The views were very cool.
But it's been three hours and I still feel like I'm rocking back and forth.
... but the food was overcooked. The ride was nice, especially with the sunset. Be sure to ask for the best seats -- you want to be on the left side of the train for the ride up, as that's where all the good water views are.
Took my Fiancee on the train and had an awesome time, the Prime Rib was the best I had ever tasted, the trip, the cars and the people were awesome. We are taking the Alaskan Cruise to Glacier Bay in September and are planning on taking our parents before we leave.
