Review of Viking Aegir

The Viking Aegir boat cruises on Rhine, Main and Danube rivers in Holland, Germany, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria, Serbia, Croatia, Romania, Bulgaria. The ship is departing from Amsterdam, Bucharest and Budapest. This Viking longship is named after Aegir - in Norse mythology the sea god ("Lord of the Ocean").

The state-of-the-art river ship Viking Aegir 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.

Viking Aegir wiki

To/from Viking Aegir boat transfers and airport meet&greet services are included in the cruise fares only when airfares are purchased through the Viking line.

Viking Aegir 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 Aegir 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.

The riverboat's godmother is Mrs Agapi Stassinopoulos - actress and writer, sister to "The Huffington Post" founder Arianna Huffington. The ship’s christening ceremony was held in Amsterdam, Holland, setting a Guinness World Record for "Most Ships Inaugurated in One Day by One Company". On March 20, 2013, Aegir was inaugurated together with the Viking longships Atla, Bragi, Embla, Forseti, Jarl, Rinda, Skadi, Tor and Var. Four of the longships were present in Amsterdam, while the other six attended the ceremony via live satellite video link from the Neptun Werft's shipbuilding yard in Rostock, Germany.
