Orient Express Tour
The Orient Express

Travelling On The Orient Express

Although the original Orient Express service ceased operation in 2009, after more than a century of providing incredible levels of luxury on the tracks; the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express continues to operate services through a number of major European cities.

One of the great travel experiences available anywhere in the world, the Orient Express has captured the imaginations of millions of people – featuring heavily in popular culture. Dozens of books, films and television shows have been inspired by the famous line.

And, at Cruise1st, we can make it easier to combine a trip on the famed Orient Express with an unforgettable cruise experience. Visiting the likes of London, Paris, Venice, Stockholm and Copenhagen; the Orient Express calls in at a number of cities with extensive cruise connections.

Although the current service started in earnest in the 1980s, it retains the charm and class of the original Orient Express. The routes are navigated by restored 1920s and 1930s carriages – providing a sense of timeless elegance and sophistication.

Holidays aboard the Orient Express and cruise ships go hand-in-hand; savouring the journey as much as the destination. Without the rush to get to the next call point, both modes of transport are beautifully relaxed and effortlessly enjoyable. Stimulating all of the senses, trips aboard both the Orient Express and cruise ships provides guests with the chance to enjoy beautiful scenery, stunning culinary experiences and much, much more.
