Viking Helgrim - user reviews and comments

Viking Helgrim ship related cruise news

Viking Helgrim Wiki

Viking Helgrim is one of the latest generation Viking River Cruises longships specifically modified for cruising on Douro River. This is a new (patented) riverboat design allowing bigger passenger accommodations without the need to shrink public areas size and to compromise the vessel's general comfort.

In 2019, together with Helgrim, Viking River Cruises launched the standard longships Einar, Sigrun, Sigyn, Tir, Ullur and Vali. The 7-ship "virtual" naming ceremony was via satellite connections and held on March 19, 2019, in four riverports - Basel Switzerland (Sigrun and Einar), Rostock Germany (Ullur and Sigyn), Brunsbuttel Germany (Vali and Tir) and Oporto Portugal (Helgrim). The Helgrim boat's godmother is Natalia Hofmann (fashion entrepreneur).
