Viking Egil Wiki

Viking Egil is one of the two latest generation Viking Cruises longships modified for cruising on Rhine, Main and Danube rivers. 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 Egil 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. 

The riverboat's godmother is Mrs Jennifer Gasser (World Travel Holdings / VP of supplier relations and product operations). The ship's naming ceremony was held in Amsterdam on March 1, 2016. Traditionally for Viking River Cruises, this was another "group christening" for 6 longships. Egil was christened together with her sister ships Alruna, Kadlin, Rolf, Tialfi and Vilhjalm.
