We cruised the Danube River in 2017 with Viking and loved it! This latest cruise was as good if not better than the Danube. We love Viking! Everything was seamless and so relaxing. From the transfers in Switzerland to the Lucerne extension, to the hotel in Lucerne (6 star!!), to the excursions in Lucerne (the walking tour was fantastic!), the transfer to Basil, onboarding in Basil, and our suite onboard the Hlin, this journey was impeccable! We so enjoyed every port of call with Strasbourg and Cologne being our favorite ports of call.

We did the Alsace wine tasting (absolutely perfect!) and the Kinderdijk Windmill tours as well and absolutely had a blast in each one of these adventures. Perhaps the biggest highlight was the cruise through the Rhine Gorge and the tour of Marksburg Castle. Absolutely stunning! We were sad to see our adventure come to an end and are already planning our next Viking cruise in 2025!

The only slight negative were a couple issues with getting my food in the dining hall. The dining staff seemed to be shorthanded on this cruise so there were delays at times. Overall, though, the experience was unforgettable!
