Viking Forseti - user reviews and comments

Viking Forseti ship related cruise news

Viking Forseti Wiki

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

Viking Forseti 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 Forseti 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.

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

The riverboat's godmother is Mrs Zhang Ling - a teacher at the sponsored by the Viking line "Cen He" school in Jinzhou (China), and coach of the kids' orchestra performing for Viking Cruises Yangtze River guests as part of the onboard entertainment. The ship’s christening ceremony was held in Amsterdam, Holland, setting a Guinness World Record for "Most Ships Inaugurated in One Day by One Company". On March 20, 2013, Forseti was inaugurated together with the Viking longships Aegir, Atla, Bragi, Embla, Jarl, Rinda, Skadi, Tor and Var. Four of the longships were present in Amsterdam, while the other six attended the ceremony via live satellite video link from the Neptun Werft's shipbuilding yard in Rostock, Germany.
