Tsars Gold Cabin Classes

The Tsars Gold private train has 5 categories of cabin ranging from Category I consisting of 4 berth cabins little different to those on good Trans-Siberian public trains to luxury cabins with ensuite facilities such as the Category IV Bolshoi and V Bolshoi Platinum. In between is the popular Category III Nostalgic Comfort and a range of cabins – Classic, Superior and superior Plus – in Category II.

Below you will find all the information on each category – Just select a tab to view full details. Please see the Moscow to Beijing and Beijing to Moscow itineraries for pricing details for each class.

The Silk Road trips have their own classes which can be viewed under the “Silk Road” tab below.

Category II - Classic, Superior & Superior Plus

Category II is divided into three variants, Classic, Superior and Superior plus, the latter only available for group bookings. All three cabins are the same size and have two adjacent berths (Classic 187 x 68cm / Superior 185 x 68 cm / Superior Plus 185 x 63 cm). Classic and Superior cabins have a table, luggage storage above the door, centrally controlled air-conditioning and shared toilet facilities at the end of each carriage. Clients also have access to shower facilities elsewhere on the train.

The difference between these cabins is that superior was more recently refurbished. Superior Plus cabins differ from the other category II cabins by having their own exclusive shower cabin (note, not in the sleeping cabins themselves).
