Review of Viking Beyla

The Viking Beyla boat cruises on Elbe River in Germany and the Czech Republic. This Viking longship is named after Beyla (meaning "bee") - in Norse mythology a female servant of Freyr (the god of sacral kingship). The other Viking longship on Elbe River is Astrild.

Discover the loveliness of former East Germany on a 10-day Elbe River cruise onboard the brand new 2015 Viking Beyla. 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 Beyla wiki

Viking Beyla is one of the two latest generation Viking Cruises longships modified for river Elbe cruising. 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 Beyla represents the line's latest Longship-class riverboat 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 Adriana Filkaszova - one of the line's long-serving employees (a Receptionist). The list of other Viking Cruises longships launched in 2015 includes Astrild, Eir, Gefjon, Lofn, Mani, Mimir, Modi, Skirnir, Ve, Vidar and Vili.
