Review of Viking Heimdal

Longship Viking Heimdal boat cruises on cruises on Saone and Rhone rivers in France, departing from homeports Avignon and Chalon-sur-Saone. This Viking longship is named after Heimdal/Heimdallr - in Norse mythology the guardian of the gods, son of god Odin and the Nine Maidens. Heimdal is also the creator of the three main social classes among humans (earls, freemen, serfs). At the end of the world, Heimdal and the god of evil Loki will battle and slay each other.

Viking Cruises Heimdal ship was designed by the legendary architects Yran & Storbraaten, standing behind Seabourn Yachts. This new river cruise boat offers state-of-the-art patented design, luxury and engineering. All Viking Longships offer guests more ways to personalizing their trip.

Viking Heimdal Wiki

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

Viking Heimdal 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 Heimdal 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 cruise ships in France are the longships BuriDellingForseti.

The riverboat's godmother is Mrs Susie Barrie - renown wine expert (MW- "Master of Wine", BBC1 TV broadcaster ("Saturday Kitchen" cookery program) and award-winning writer ("Gourmand World Award" 2006). The ship’s christening ceremony was held in Avignon, France. On March 18, 2014, Heimdal was inaugurated together with the Viking longships Buri and Hermod.
