Amtrak New York to DC return - which option

Jump to last reply

We will be visiting New York and would like to catch the train to Washington. I was looking at Acela but read a post that the train sways a fair bit and the poster felt a bit sick by the end of the journey. I am now a bit wary of booking as I am prone to travel sickness (fine in planes but not great in buses). Everyone seems to recommend the train between the two cities as an easier way to travel.

Has anyone noticed the difference in swaying between the two train types?

If there isnt a difference is Acela worth the extra fare?

Thanks for any advice you may have.
