Belmond Offers New Routes and Entertainment

Traveling to Europe soon? Now is the perfect time to see Europe by train. Belmond is now offering new routes, packages and themed trips that will excite every type of traveler.

Belmond's new route through Ireland is now accepting reservations ahead of its launch in August 2016. Belmond Grand Hibernian will be guests’ home for a two-, four- or six-night journey. Though, we think, the six-night journey gives just the right amount of time to see the countryside and coastal scenery of both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

For a trip back in time to the 1920s, guests should visit the new champagne bar aboard the Venice Simplon-Orient Express. Only the top selections of bubbly are offered, including Tattinger, Laurent Perrier Rose and Louis Roederer Cristal. And for passengers looking for a special touch, the champagne celebration breakfast on trips from London to Venice is a must. Imagine enjoying delicious pastries while enjoying the scenery of the Swiss lakes.

The entertainment on Belmond Northern Belle is getting an exciting revamp this fall. Variety Dinners will highlight British entertainment and entertain guests with cabaret, dancers, contortionists, comedians, magicians and musicians. During the show passengers will enjoy a five-course meal. The dinners will depart from select stations this September.
