Review of Viking Hild

The Viking Hild boat cruises on Rhine and Moselle rivers in France, Germany, Switzerland. The ship is departing from Paris.

Viking Hild cruise ship

The state-of-the-art river ship Viking Hild longship was designed as a “green ship” by the legendary architects Yran & Storbraaten, with solar panels, hybrid energy-efficient engines and organic herb garden. The added benefit of hybrid engines is smoother cruising experience.
