  3. Viking Hlin
We have been on at least 6 Vikings and loved them and this one we hadn't taken yet and wanted to see it. We are sorry we did. It was a disappointment. The trip was okay as was the food. The weather was bad. We did enjoy Basel a lot. Would love to go back there sometime. We liked Strasboug, France, Black Forest and Cologne, Germany. The ship entertainment was weak to non-existent. We found the focus on board was to sell drinks. We don't drink alcohol and found we were outsiders on own trip. Too much focus on drinking and not enough for people like us. The Airport connections were terrible. We were dumped off at 5 am at Amsterdam and abandoned , when the British flight desk didn't open till 6:30 am. All were rude. No place to sit. Awful! The walk to the gate was way too far away...miles.

It was okay. Not great!

Cabin Review

Veranda Suite
Cabin AA 312?
We found it to be fine. The steward was good too. Enjoyed the room and balcony. Had room to relax and enjoy in separate areas. Easy to get to and from. Centrally located. We enjoyed Basel and other cities on cruise. Food was not very good!
