  3. Viking Hild
We sailed the end of September and early October 2018 (not a choice in date sailed box). Never been to Sweden before. Best part was post cruise, wine tasting stops, "Highlights of the Alps" and Zermatt. Hotel Alex in Zermatt was exceptional I would highly recommend the post tour and Hotel Alex! The weather was clear and the Matterhorn was spectacular! This was our 5th Viking River Cruise segment ( Grand European, France's Finest, Paris to Switzerland) and we got the level of service and food that we have come to expect from our other cruises. We also like the ability to bring wine on board for our room. First Class! Negative Comments: Not a fan of the UN and probably could have had better use of our time. Hotel in Geneva was beautiful inside but I didn't really care for the area (train yard out our window). Seems like in Paris and the othe big cities Viking could locate a hotel closer to the old parts of town or at least something within walking distance of some activities.Always having to take a taxi, bus, subway ot tram. Tired of Paris (2nd time of Pre Cruise package) and if we take another vacation in Europe we probably won't do a Paris stay. We are in our eraly 70's so what we enjoy might be different from other cruises.
