I'm not the kind of person who sits around and writes negative reviews. But after the multiple horrendous experiences I've had with Amtrak Vacations, I actually googled around until I could find somewhere to write about how badly run this business is. The customer service reps are all very nice. But it is the most poorly managed company I've ever encountered. (I received a $300 Amtrak Vacations gift card, so the reason I've continued booking with them for a few trips was in order to use up the amount on the card.) Prepare for a long phone call when you book--my longest was 53 minutes. They will put you on hold while they speak to people from accounting to check the amount on your card. (Why do I get the feeling that nobody there is sitting in front of a computer?) They will transfer you back and forth from "reservations" to "guest services". You may or may not get the emails they say they'll send with your ticket information. (I find I receive about 50% of the ones promised to me.) They will make errors refunding money to your card. And never ever call on a Saturday. The last straw that led to me writing this review was the 25 minutes I just spent, waiting to talk to a rep. She said that the business only has 3 employees on the phones Saturday to handle all the calls that come in. In short, don't use this company. Book online with regular Amtrak and save yourself the hassle.

We got an Amtrak credit card three years ago. So far we have traveled to five different locations and used our points for every trip but the first. No charge! Thank you Amtrak.
I believe the Coastal Starlight was the most beautiful trip from Seattle to Los Angeles in early April.
The trip from Portland, MAINE to Boston then ,Chicago and through upper north to Sandpoint, Idaho was a good one with a nice sleeper great food and views.
Next trip is going to be up to Canada and try crossing from Van cover to Calgary.
Enjoying this kind of traveling.

There's just something about taking a train, the sound of the railway, the views on your journey, dinning , and cabins if needed. Short or long , it was comfortable, I look forward to my next journey with Amtrak.
