  3. Viking Hlin
This was by far the highlight of our month in Europe. We have never done a river cruise before, but we will certainly be traveling with Viking again! From the moment we stepped on board to the time we left the cruise in Basel, we were treated with respect, courtesy and friendly crew. Everyone was amazing and went out of their way to ensure all guests had a fabulous time. The shore tours were very well organized and executed. The guides were local to the area and passionate about their cities. We travelled in the midst of the heatwave and our comfort was taken into account every step of the way. We were in the 'cheap seats' as far as our accommodation was concerned, but we had no issues with engine noise or feeling cramped. The rooms were lovely and our steward was amazing! We ate in the restaurant most nights and became very friendly with a lovely couple from Mobile, Alabama. In fact, we still email each other weekly. The food was second to none, thanks to the amazing culinary skills of Mark Anthony. Our waiters, in particular Kyle, Branislav and Jerome were very attentive and super friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. If they could possibly cater to your requests, they would do so in a heartbeat. The entire trip was so well organized and the crew were incredible. I highly recommend the Viking Hlin to everyone!!
