  3. Viking Hlin
We had not been back to Europe in 40 years, and we had never done a cruise of any kind. The Viking cruise on the Viking Hlin far surpassed any expectations we could have. It was literally the best vacation we have had. The ship was fantastic. The cabins were roomy enough for two to move around in easily; the furnishings were very nice and the veranda was much appreciated and much used. The staff were great, with special mention to our cabin steward, the captain and the maitre'd, not to take anything away from anyone else. Everyone bent over backwards to please and succeeded. The food was excellent. The wait staff was excellent. The tours were well planned and informative, and the four tour buses that followed the route of the ship and drove the tour groups was at once unexpected and appreciated. There are no negatives of any kind that I can apply to our cruise. We will definitely cruise with Viking again.

Wunderbar!
