We chose this sailing so we could visit Christmas markets. We were not disappointed! Many markets, large and small, throughout the various ports. We were disappointed that we had to be bussed into so many towns however. The ship was ... Read more

This was our first river cruise, but not our last! Everything from the booking to the trip itself was flawless. The Hlin is a new ship with every amenity imiginable for a river boat. I'm not sure my wife and I will ever sail on a large ... Read more

Love river cruising. Everything was convenient. The service was good and always helpful. We like the small ship and less walking for activities. The scenic views of the landscape were breathtaking. We had a illness while on board and ... Read more

Unfortunately, what should have been a great Rhine cruise was marred for over half the passengers on the Viking Hlin. Within two days of boarding the ship over 60 out of 188 passengers came down with gastroenteritis. The ship staff took ... Read more
