Review of Viking Bragi

The Viking Bragi boat cruises on Danube, Rhine and Main in Holland, Germany, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria, France, Switzerland, departing from Amsterdam, Budapest and Basel. This Viking longship is named after Bragi - in Norse mythology the god of poetry and music, son of Odin.

The state-of-the-art Viking Bragi longship was designed as a “green ship” by the legendary architects Yran & Storbraaten, with solar panels, hybrid energy-efficient engines and organic herb garden.Three quarters of Viking Bragi cabins feature either a French balcony or a full veranda, and suites have both. On board ship you will find 95 outside staterooms (two Explorer Suites, seven Veranda Suites, thirty-nine Veranda Staterooms, twenty-two French Balcony Staterooms and twenty-five Standard Staterooms.

Viking Bragi cruise ship

The ship carries just 190 passengers in comfortable elegance, with amenities like in-room refrigerators and 40” flat-panel Sony TVs. The Aquavit Terrace is at ship’s bow, and offers opportunity for indoor and outdoor relaxation and dining, with floor to ceiling windows. The Sun Deck shaded sitting area provides ideal environment to enjoy the changing scenery while you cruise. Onboard amenities also include a library, an onboard boutique and free wireless internet service.

  • Viking Bragi is one of the latest generation Viking Cruises longships. This is a new (patented) Viking river cruise boat design allowing bigger accommodations without the need to shrink public areas size and to compromise the vessel's general comfort. The Viking ship Bragi represents the line's latest Longship-class river boat design. Viking Cruises longships feature energy-efficient hybrid engine technology, solar panels and an interior design by "Yran & Storbraaten" (Norway). The patented "longship" design ("Rottet Studios", USA) allows much larger passenger accommodations with full-size balconies. The additional cabin space is created by 1 m (3,3 ft) off-center shifting of the deck's corridor.
  • The riverboat's godmother is Dr Dertje Meijer - Port Amsterdam's CEO, "Amsterdam Cruise Port" board member, and also an ESPO member ("European Sea Ports Organisation"). The ship’s christening ceremony was held in Amsterdam, Holland, setting a Guinness World Record for "Most Ships Inaugurated in One Day by One Company". On March 20, 2013, Bragi was inaugurated together with the Viking longships Aegir, Atla, Embla, Forseti, Jarl, Rinda, Skadi, Tor and Var. Four of the longships were present in Amsterdam, while the other six attended the ceremony via live satellite video link from the Neptun Werft's shipbuilding yard in Rostock, Germany.
