Viking Hlin Cruise Review by molly1196
- Sail Date: October 2015
- Destination: Europe River
- Cabin Type: Veranda Stateroom
I had two disappointments. The cuisine aboard was just so-so. Breakfast was excellent as one had many choices to choose from. lunch was usually ordinary, nothing special. Dinner was more disappointing. Food was usually overcooked or tasteless. Sauces were nothing special. I skipped dinner twice in the dining room. I hope you can fix this. I am a chef and fussy about food, however, serving food in a large atmosphere can be excellent everyday if food is fresh and sauces are not frozen or packaged.
The Radisson Blu hotel at the end of our trip in Amsterdam had its issues too. While the hotel was conveniently located in the city, the room was nicely appointed and had comfortable beds. There was too little lighting and a hazardous entry to the bathroom. One had to step up to go into the bathroom and I tripped and fell twice as did my roommate. Combined with poor lighting this could have been tragic. My suggestion, pick another hotel and check out the rooms more carefully.
The best part of the Radisson stay was the tour guide through the city. Her name was Hannakah. She watched out for us and was a wealth of Amsterdam information.

Canal TourThe highlight of Amsterdam were the museums. The Rikjsmuseum and Van Gogh were breathtaking. I so admired the use of light in their paintings and the skill at projecting such artistry in the sixteenth century.View All 263 Canal Tour Reviews
