Compared to the DB, there was good wifi and power sockets within easy reach on the train. It's difficult without a seat reservation, you have to keep moving around. Nevertheless, the seats were very comfortable. The staff were courteous, but there was some rubbish in the corridors and especially in the toilet. The rubbish bins could be emptied more regularly. Due to roadworks, the train had to divert to a different route, which caused delays.
Pro

Contra
IconOn-board restaurant
On the train journey from Paris to Munich. We had a power socket and wifi. The wifi was OK👌 it was very quiet and calm. We had plenty of legroom and it was almost empty on the train. The staff were nice, but unfortunately the on-board restaurant only served chips. The toilets were very clean and modern. Unfortunately, we were delayed by 2 hours due to track works. Overall, and for 1st class, the price-performance ratio was excellent.
