  • Viking Baldur 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 Baldur 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 Kathryn Burney-Mazza - NEST's president and TRAVELSAVERS exec VP of sales (both companies are vacation travel brands). The ship's christening ceremony was held in Amsterdam, Holland. On March 17, 2014, Baldur was inaugurated together with the Viking longships Alsvin, Bestla, Delling, Eistla, Gullveig, Ingvi, Lif and Magni.
