Viking Buri - user reviews and comments

Viking Buri Wiki

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

Viking Buri 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 Buri 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.

While the Viking Buri ship does not have a pool, sauna or spa, her guests can enjoy luxury wellness facilities in all the port cities along the river cruise itinerary.

The other Viking river cruise ships in France are the longships DellingForsetiHeimdalHermod.

The riverboat's godmother is Mrs Mireille Mathieu - a renown French singer (Chanson and pop), publisher and author, with over 122 mill music albums sold worldwide. The ship’s christening ceremony was held in Avignon, France. On March 18, 2014, Buri was inaugurated together with the Viking longships Heimdal and Hermod.
