Last year, we reserved a roomette on the Empire Builder for this past May, after a cruise, and it was around $750 for two. Well, both were cancelled due to the pandemic. We just signed up for the same cruise next summer and wanted to take the EB back to Chicago from Seattle. Now it is $1,300!! And a bedroom is over $2,000. It’s not the pandemic that are keeping people off of trains, it’s the ridiculous prices. By the way, our cruise is costing us the same price next August as it was in May.
