Amtrak Ending Traditional Dining Car Luxury PDF Print E-mail


Not many of us can remember way back to the days when meals and drinks were served like an upscale restaurant on US trains. Gradually over the past decades, that all became quick snacks. Now Amtrak has officially discontinued waiter-served meals.

If you’re planning a long railroad ride, buy snacks aboard or be sure to pack your meal and drinks . Be content to enjoy them in your regular seat. www.usatoday.com/story/travel/2019/09/27/amtrak-dining-car-alternatives-napa-valley-wine-train-conway-scenic-railroad

Soar As A Space Tourist If You Have The Nerve And Dough PDF Print E-mail


The Gateway Foundation hopes to create a commercial space station with passenger suites, orbiting the Earth. The California company is planning a cruise ship-style hotel floating among the stars.

The aim is to start test runs by 2025 and open for business in 2027. When space tourism happens, it will be only for the very daring and very rich. Concurrently, Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic also plans to launch sub-orbital space stations in the near future, costing $250,000 per person, per trip. Of course, it includes all meals and booze. And maybe some spectacular sightseeing. www.cnn.com/travel/article/space-hotel-designs-von-braun-station-scn

 
Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Grabs More Tourist Money PDF Print E-mail


Will it be Double Dutch? Next time you visit this favorite foreign city of your travel4seniors.com editor, be aware. Politicians there will be taking more cash out of your travel pocket.

The charming city already has the highest hotel tax rates in Europe. And they will go higher. Of course, as in many world cities, that’s just the tip of the extra charges. So, when you see ads touting hotels for $99.99 a night, whether in the Dutch or other tourist city, that’s just the start of the real cost. With add-ons of local taxes, resort fees and other hits, consider your advertised room rate may be actually only about half of what you’ll really have to pay. www.cnn.com/travel/article/amsterdam-tourist-tax-increase
