River Cruise Review - Viking Hlin - Viking River Cruises

Read a professional travel writers review of the Viking Hlin, Vikings Longship to find out about more award-winning river cruises and Viking's newest ships.

 

Best River Cruise Ship - Viking Longship Hlin - Viking River Cruises hit this one out of the park, so to speak. The new Viking Longships are the biggest sailing the European waterways, but they are also some of the nicest. A lot of thought has obviously gone into the design and construction of these floating hotels. Rich leather furnishings with a Scandinavian decor give the ship a classy and elegant feeling, like a 5-star hotel. Read our review.

Best Lounge - Viking Longship Hlin -  There is no better view than sitting in the Viking Lounge on a Viking Longship. Expansive views of the river are made possible by walls of floor-to-ceiling glass without the typical dividing structures to impede the view. Simply brilliant.

Best Decor - Viking Longship Hlin -  We really liked the light colors and Norwegian/Scandinavian decor theme on Hlin better than any river cruise ship we have been on to date. Very comfortable and very elegant..

Best Sun Deck - Viking Longship Hlin -  Even though it was too cold to enjoy on our late November cruise, the Sun Deck on Hlin was the perfect design for enjoying the river scenery. There are plenty of deck chairs, many protected from the elements with canvas tarps. And, they have swapped the useless large chess set for a mini-golf putting area and herb garden!

Best New Concept - Viking Longship Hlin - Aquavit Terrace - This alternate dining venue is positioned all the way forward on Deck 3 and offers both indoor and outdoor (al fresco) seating. A Continental breakfast is served here each morning as well as a light luncheon each day at Noon. There is an evening "bar menu" for those who would rather skip a trip to The Restaurant. Diners can also enjoy seating for two in Viking Lounge.

 


 

River Cruises - In The News

 

Travel & Leisure Readers Name Viking River Cruises #1 River Cruise Line
Viking rated highest of all cruise lines in 2015 World’s Best Awards

Los Angeles (July 8, 2015) – Sailing high on a year of impressive accolades, Viking River Cruises® has once again been named the #1 River Cruise Line by readers of Travel + Leisure. The results of the annual Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards are based on a survey that asked readers to cast votes for the very best in cruising on the following characteristics: cabins/facilities, restaurants/food, service, itineraries/destinations, excursions/activities and value. The full results of the awards can be found at http://www.travelandleisure.com/worlds-best.

 

This is the eleventh consecutive year that Viking has appeared on the World’s Best Awards list, and this year the company earned a score of 93.92 – higher than any other river or ocean cruise line.

“We are delighted to be named the top river cruise line and would like to thank our guests and the readers of Travel + Leisure for this great honor,” said Torstein Hagen, chairman of Viking Cruises. “As the river cruise market continues to grow, we will never lose sight of the Viking Way of travel – we offer our guests the ‘thinking man’s cruise,’ not the ‘drinking man’s cruise.’ We provide enriching experiences for our guests in every destination, and we do it at a great value.”

“The Viking Way” of travel is small ship cruises that focus on the destination, that provide authentic cultural touch points along the way and that offer a wide variety of choice for many different budgets and individual travel preferences. Every Viking itinerary covers a destination’s most famous sights and landmarks, but guests are also offered opportunities to go beyond the iconic and expected – a “Local Life” experience, such as a home-hosted visit; a “Working World” experience, such as a factory visit; and a Privileged Access experience, such as an exclusive, behind-the-scenes museum tour.

As a response to increased traveler demand for Viking’s destination-focused cruises, the company expanded its river offerings in 2015 with the launch of new award-winning Viking Longships® and new European itineraries. Since entering the North American market in 2000, Viking has continued to set industry standards with best-in-class river cruise ships, award-winning service, outstanding quality and all-inclusive itineraries offered at a competitive price.

In early 2015, Viking officially expanded into the ocean cruise market and with the launch of its first ocean ship, the 930-passenger Viking Star® – marking the arrival of the travel industry’s first entirely new cruise line in a decade. In June, Viking “floated out” its second ship, Viking Sea® at Fincantieri’s Ancona shipyard. Viking Sea was launched in early 2016, and the company’s third ship on order, Viking Sky®, is currently under construction for debut in early 2017. All three ships will sail popular routes in Scandinavia and the Baltic; and the Western and Eastern Mediterranean.

River Cruise Tips

What's not found on a River Cruise: River Cruises don't offer elaborate production shows, don't have a casino. There's no big promenade shopping mall, no midnight buffet, nor any waterslides, ice skating rinks or rock climbing walls. River Cruises do transport you "back in time" to visit the people, places and events, where Europe's rich history comes alive in hundred's of historic sites, classical cities and towns. All the while, enjoying Viking’s modern comfort, cuisine and included onshore excursions and activities. Taking a River Cruise Vacation could turn out to be quite a journey.
