Amtrak Sleeper Car Advice Needed

Jump to last reply

I bought a ticket on Amtrak from Oregon to California with a room. At the last minute, a friend has decided they'd like to come along. We'd like to share a room instead of buying a second one, but I don't know if this is possible, because this is the first time I've purchased a room.

I've ridden on trains before, and if I remember correctly, you show your ticket and get shown to your seat (in the coach cabin). It seems like it's not really possible for her to "sneak" over to my room to sleep there (and it definitely doesn't seem possible for her to join me for the pre-paid meals in the dining car). Am I right, or does anyone know of a way that it's possible?

I guess I could refund my ticket and we could repurchase it as a shared reservation, but the prices have gone up since I bought mine, so I feel like I'll be getting the bad end of that deal.
