Another first timer question... I can't afford Roomettes the entire way but for the longer parts of the journey I can swing it. However it would save SO MUCH MONEY if I just went with Coach there and back (total of 141 hours/6-ish days on the train round trip, but we are getting off and staying overnight somewhere) that it is tempting to book that instead. Booking the Roomettes even just a portion of the trip leaves me with barely any wiggle room for additional spending. My kids are not babies, they'll be 11, 13 & 15 when we travel. Definitely old enough to keep themselves entertained. Can Coach people use the showers? Sorry if that's a dumb question, it will be our first time after all LOL! Will we be completely miserable if we travel coach the entire way? We are planning one of two possible trips, if this helps with answers: Crescent GA to DC, Capitol Ltd DC to CHI, then CHI to Flagstaff on Southwest Chief. **OR** Crescent GA to NOLA, Sunset Ltd NOLA to LAX. Thank you and sorry for all the questions! This forum is super helpful and I'm so glad I stumbled across it!
