We chose this cruise because we always wanted to go to the Christmas markets in Europe. It was totally worth doing and would consider doing it every year. It gets you in the spirit of Christmas and is so fun to see all the decorations ... 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
