Review of Viking Gullveig

The Viking Gullveig boat cruises on on Rhine river in Holland, Germany, France, Switzerland, departing from Amsterdam, Budapest, Nurnberg and Basel. This Viking longship is named after Gullveig/Heidr - in Norse mythology the "three times burnt - thrice reborn" seeress and volva (witch). The Gullveig's mistreatment by Aesir started the Aesir–Vanir War that in the end united the two god groups (Vanirs and Aesirs) into one.

The Viking Cruises longship Viking Gullveig was designed as a “green ship” by the legendary architects Yran & Storbraaten, with solar panels, hybrid energy-efficient engines and organic herb garden.

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 Gullveig 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 Hanh Haley - partner of Michael Batt (founder/chairman of "Travel Leaders" - the America's largest network of agencies providing travel deals, vacation packages, business travel services). The ship's christening ceremony was held in Amsterdam, Holland.
