Indian Odyssey: Delhi to Mumbai by Luxury Train


The Deccan Odyssey is one of the subcontinent’s most luxurious trains; its cars, built in 2003, have been upgraded with new carpet and bedspreads recently, according to our ground suppliers. These improvements, which we recommended last year, bring this train up to “luxury” status, because its staff, service, amenities and food were already superb.

The train has 12 air-conditioned sleeping cars with two suite types. Deluxe cabins are 95 square feet, with four per car. These have twin beds or double bed and en-suite shower, sink and toilet. Four Presidential suites (205 square feet) each take up half a train car. These suites have large double bed, separate sitting room and two bathrooms. The train takes a maximum of 88 guests. Each sleeping car has a small lounge area at one end, where the car attendants greet guests with cool drinks and towels after each day of touring.


Lovely meals are beautifully served in the two diners, with a choice of Continental and Indian cuisine. Off-train dining is usually Indian cuisine only.

Lounge Cars

Public spaces abound: a bar car with full-time bartender; conference car with plasma-screen TV, library and business center; and spa car with massage services, sauna, beauty parlor and a small workout room.
