The Viking Vilhjalm boat cruises on Danube River in Austria, Germany, Hungary, Slovakia, departing from Nurnberg, Budapest and Passau. This Viking longship is named after William Longsword (893-942 AD) - half brother of Kadlin and son of Rolf (aka Rollo, first Duke of Normandy). Succeeding his father, William ruled Normandy between 927-942 AD. Rolf's great-great-great-grandson Vilhjalm ("William the Conqueror") became the England's first Norman King. He invaded and conquered England in 1066.

  • Viking Vilhjalm 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 Vilhjalm represents the line's latest Longship-class riverboat 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.
  • Vilhjalm longship's godmother is Mrs Beryl Gibson (Northumbria Travel Limited / co-owner). The ship's naming ceremony was held in Amsterdam on March 1, 2016. Traditionally for Viking River Cruises, this was another "group christening" for 6 longships. Vilhjalm was christened together with the sister ships Alruna, Egil, Kadlin, Rolf and Tialfi.
