  3. Viking Hlin
Our most recent river cruise, 1st on the Yangtze, 2nd, the Baltic-Volga Waterway, found us on the Rhine Getaway aboard the Hiln. The scenery was amazing! As with our previous cruises we found the stateroom to be small but adequately appointed, the ship to be immaculately clean and comfortable, the crew, attentive and knowledgeable, food & wine delicious and plentiful, tours incomparable! In each port our tours were conducted by local guides who speak excellent English and shared their love and knowledge of the areas we were visiting. The coaches are all comfortable, immaculate and the drivers took great care of their passengers. On-board activities are always interesting and well presented. We have learned so much about each of the areas we've toured and actually felt the history brought to life around us. This is what I love most about Viking's Itineraries. Viking also takes great care to assure that you never feel uncertain as to what happens next. From picking you up at the airport to returning you to your place of departure, they handle everything for you. 2016 will find us cruising on The Star, one of Viking's new ocean ships. We will visit Viking Homeland. Can't wait!

Cabin Review

Veranda Stateroom
Cabin B 207
Cabin aboard the Hiln was well appointed, with the amenities needed to make a small room as comfortable as possible. As we are 2 female friends traveling together, the "king bed" is spit into 2 singles with a small end table in the center. There is a loveseat size coach and a separate single chair plus a vanity with chair. Cupboard and closet space are close, but adequate. There is a medicine cabinet, counter and shelf to stow your toiletries in the bathroom. The big plus is the full size sliding door to the veranda equipped with 2 chairs and a table. We spent most of our "chill time" enjoying wine on the veranda and watching the scenery cruise by.
