Review of Viking Herja

Longship Viking Herja cruises on Rhine and Moselle rivers in France, Germany, Switzerland. The ship is departing from Paris. This Viking longship is named after Herja - a mighty valkyrie from the Old Norse mythology. Valkyries (Valkyria, translated "chooser of the slain") are female mythological personages who choose who lives and who dies on the battlefield.

Viking Herja is among the newest longships in Viking River Cruises fleet. The riverboat features innovative corridor configuration (patented design), modern engineering and technologies, signature Scandinavian-themed decor, premium stateroom amenities, itinerary-based and expert-led enrichment program, themed onboard entertainment, the efficiency of public spaces, the signature lounge Aquavit Terrace and numerous cabins with step-out balconies. Each of the Viking's longship-class riverboats also has two of the European river cruising industry's largest suites.

Viking Herja - user reviews and comments

Viking Herja Wiki

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

Viking Herja 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 Herja 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.

Traditionally for Viking River Cruises, Herja boat's naming ceremony was a "group christening" event. On March 7, 2017, was held a double-christening ceremony on which Viking Herja was officially named - together with Viking Hild. The event took place in Germany (at the confluence of Rhine and Mosel) and close to the border with France.

The riverboat's godmother is Mrs Debbie Wiseman (British composer/film and TV music, conductor, radio and TV presenter). The ceremonial bottle was Veuve Cliquot Champagne. The Hild riverboat's godmother was Princess Stephanie von Brenken) - wife of Prince Carl Friedrich of Lowenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg. Princess Stephanie is also CEO of the family-owned winery "Weingut Furst Lowenstein". The family’s home is also an exclusive (Privileged Access) Viking river cruise excursion for touring the family's estate and winery.
