Review of Viking Mimir

The Viking Mimir boat cruises on Rhine, Main and Danube Rivers in the Netherlands, Austria, Slovakia, Germany and Hungary. This Viking longship is named after Mimir (meaning "rememberer") - in Norse mythology the god of wisdom and knowledge. Beheaded during the war between the two groups of gods (Venirs and Aesirs), Mimir's head was later on carried by Odin to receive secret knowledge.

Join the 2015 Viking Mimir Grand European Tour for 15 pleasant days along the Main, Danube and Rhine Rivers. You'll be able to see Holland’s windmills and tulip fields as well as Germany’s fairytale castles and the vineyards of Wachau Valley in Austria. Another chance gives the Romantic Danube itinerary - an 8-day sailing along the “Blue Danube” to explore fascinating Budapest, tour riverside in Austria’s Wachau Valley and experience the imperial architecture of Vienna.

Viking Mimir cruise ship

Mimir has gained his wisdom by drinking from Well of Wisdom and was so wise that the Venir tribe called on him for counsel when the tribes of Aesir and Venir gods were at war. Mimir could not translate the words of guidance, so they beheaded him and sent his head to the Aesirs. Odin embalmed Mimir’s head and casted a spell empowering it to share secrets. This way Mimir guided Odin through war until the two tribes unified into one. Viking Mimir hosts 190 guests in 95 staterooms. The Mimir ship boasts the same design elements as the other Viking Longships, featuring deluxe accommodations, streamlined Scandinavian interiors and exceptional engineering. Viking Longships have new features including the revolutionary all-weather Aquavit Terrace bringing the outdoor scenery indoors, allowing passengers to enjoy the river views and al fresco dining. The Longships have two Explorer Suites which are the largest in Europe as well as seven Veranda Suites (two-room) with a veranda and a French balcony. The 39 Veranda Staterooms feature full-size balconies and there are also 22 French Balcony Staterooms. All Viking Longships, including Viking Mimir boast organic herb gardens and onboard solar panels. Their hybrid engines are energy-efficient and reduce vibrations for a smooth ride.

Viking Mimir river cruise prices are per person and based on double occupancy. These are only indicative Viking cruise rates.

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 Mimir 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.
