Viking Astrild - user reviews and comments

Viking Astrild Wiki

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

Viking Astrild is one of the two latest generation Viking Cruises longships specifically modified for cruising on Elbe River. 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 Astrild represents the line's latest Longship-class river boat design. Viking Cruises longships feature energy-efficient hybrid engine technology, solar panels and 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-centre shifting of the deck's corridor.

Riverboat’s godmother is Mrs Sinemie Bakker - one of the line's long-serving employees (a Program Director). The list of other Viking Cruises longships launched in 2015 includes Beyla, Eir, Gefjon, Lofn, Mani, Mimir, Modi, Skirnir, Ve, Vidar and Vili.

Note: You can see the CruiseMapper's list of all river cruise ships and riverboats in the "itinerary" section of our River Cruises hub. All companies and their fleets are listed there.
