Rolling out this month, the Maharajas’ Express (91-22/6690-4747; the-maharajas.com; six nights from $11,200 for two, all-inclusive; September–April) travels four cross-country routes in an early 20th-century train that mixes timeless details such as wood-paneled dining cars and 24-hour butler service with modern technology—LCD televisions; climate-controlled cabins. On the Royal Rajasthan on Wheels (royal-rajasthan-on-wheels.com; seven nights from $8,260 for two, all-inclusive; September–April), you’ll journey through the northwestern state aboard a 38-cabin train with jewel-tone, fabric-covered walls and large panoramic windows, perfect for viewing the Thar Desert. —Jaime Gross
