Has anyone recently used this overnight train from Amsterdam into Zurich. I want to ask some questions :
1) Is the couchette option convenient for a family of 4 ( 2 A + 2 C ) ?
I was hoping to book a 4 berth couchette but it looks like they are going to remove this option from December onward,In that case I will have to book 5 berths in a 6 berth couchette, since I am traveling in July 2016.
From what I have read from Mark Smith's website Seat 61: ( Sorry, not sure whether we can publish this kind of stuff from another website, apologies if not,and please remove. )
"From 13 December 2015 City Night Line will no longer offer 4-berth couchettes, only 6-berth. But they say they will only ever book 5 people into a 6-berth, to give extra room. So a family of 4 will need to book 5 berths in a 6-berth to get a 4-berth.
2) Is it safe ?
3) Is it too noisy to sleep ? I mean are the train coaches really old or modern ?
Thanks for your reply in advance.
