  3. Viking Kadlin
We arrived in Paris two days before departure and went to the Palace of Versailles. It was spectacular! On Friday we were picked up at our hotel and brought right to our cruise ship. It was the maiden voyage of the Kadlin. The crew were there to meet us, offering us warm, moist towels to clean our hands. Our luggage was brought right to our rooms. Our 21 year old daughter traveled with us. We were a little concerned that the cruise might be too old for her. Not to worry. She met several other twenty-somethings and had a blast. She actually turned 21 on the ship and they brought out a cake with sparklers and sang. The ship had everything we could want. The room was well appointed and comfortable. We had a French balcony which was really nice. Our daughter had a standard room and while she didn't have a great view, she spent most of her time in the lounge. The only downside was the weather. It was very cool and overcast. We didn't spend much time up on the top deck. We are definitely going again and placed a deposit down for our next cruise. Would highly recommend Viking River Cruises.

The most relaxing vacation we ever had.

Cabin Review

Cabin 226
The cabin was beautiful. Linens were soft and clean. Had a little problem with the internet but it was fixed by the end of the first day. The cabins are all equipped with quiet vox headsets to take on your excursions. This allows you to hear the guide without having to be on top of them. I was worried about where we would put our clothes but there was more than enough storage and hanging room. Bottles of fresh water were supplied every day in the rooms as well as ample toiletries.
