The legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express is undoubtedly one of the most famous trains in the world. It has been a synonym for stylish and exclusive travel since 1883. Her vintage carriages enable the traveller to step back in time to rediscover an age of romance and elegance.
Part of this experience is unique high quality tableware present in three on-board restaurant cars. A need that was perfectly fulfilled by Villeroy & Boch. As a result, guests aboard the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express are now accompanied by the exclusively designed Villeroy & Boch tableware series “L’Oriental”, “Etoile du Nord” and “Côte d’Azur”, made of premium bone porcelain.
Gary Franklin, Managing Director of Trains & Cruises at Orient-Express, sums up delightedly, “We are very excited by our new range of china for the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. We were looking at ways of bringing out the details found throughout the train and Villeroy & Boch were very imaginative in finding beautiful and creative ways to achieve this whilst also respecting the history and heritage of the train.”
