Review of Viking Astrild

The Viking Astrild boat cruises on Elbe River in Germany and Czech Republic. This Viking longship is named after Astrild (meaning "love-fire") - in Norse mythology the goddess of love, the heavenly cupid inspiring love and passion in the world of humans. The other Viking longship on Elbe River is Beyla.

Discover the loveliness of former East Germany on a 10-day Elbe River cruise on board the brand new 2015 Viking Astrild. Stroll through the palaces and gardens of the Saxon monarchs and sail between the cliffs of “Saxon Switzerland” in Germany. The voyage is bookended by nights in the beautiful Prague and multicultural Berlin.

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 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.

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.
