Review of Viking Legend

The Viking Legend boat cruises on Danube river in Austria, Germany, Hungary, Slovakia, departing from Budapest and Passau.

Viking Legend was specially designed for sailing in comfort on the European rivers. Her 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 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.
