Review of Viking Legend

The Viking Legend boat cruises on Danube River in Austria, Germany, Hungary, Slovakia, departing from Budapest and Passau. Followed by the sister-ship Viking Prestige, the Legend ship is Viking's first pre-longship "green" riverboat. Both vessels run on hybrid engines (diesel-electric type) producing less vibrations for a quieter ride.

Viking Legend was specially designed for sailing in comfort on the European rivers. The ship's higher ceilings give a spacious feeling. With good height of deck, Viking Legend is similar to Viking Helvetia and Viking Sun, but has sleeker shape ensuring ultimate flexibility. Viking Legend is a Viking “green” ship, boasting diesel-electric hybrid engines producing reduced noise, vibration and 20 percent fewer emissions.

Viking Legend cruise ship (Danube River)

The entire ship was set up for best viewing of scenery and in addition to the French balconies, large picture windows and hotel-style beds, guests can enjoy the open air decks during their sailing. The observation restaurant and deck feature huge panoramic windows. Ship’s lobby atrium also offers a seating area with large observation windows. Viking Legend boasts 97 outside staterooms, of which 66 French Balcony, 24 Standard, 5 Singles and 2 Suites. The Sun deck features 360-deg. views and provides shaded sitting area. Benefit from the onboard boutique, library and free wireless internet service shipwide.
