As the release further details, the train pays tribute to the years of "La Dolce Vita" in the 1960s, when Italy experienced an economic boom, giving rise to a more glamorous lifestyle. This is evident inside all 12 of the train's deluxe cabins, 18 suites, and its "La Dolce Vita" signature suite, all boasting cozy bedding, sitting areas, delicious chocolate wood accents, and massive picture windows, so guests can enjoy the view during every second of the ride.
