Concierge.com's insider take:

It's rightly called a cruise train, because this train has many of the advantages and disadvantages of cruise-ship travel. If you are a romantic, a train buff, or have limited time or limited tolerance for having to explain to people why you don't want to visit their cousin's shop, even just for looking, then you may find there is no better way to see Rajasthan than from the Palace on Wheels. Its 14 cars house two restaurants and 52 wood-paneled compartments with double beds, each with private bath and shower. The eight-day all-inclusive journey begins in New Delhi and stops at all of the major sites in Rajasthan, as well as at the Taj Mahal. This mode of travel is not everyone's cup of tea (served promptly, mornings and evenings), as you're subject to a strict schedule and cannot linger at the sites. However, the concept is so popular that two more, even plusher, palace trains are in the works.

From $2,450 per person.
