Viking Hermod - user reviews and comments

Viking Hermod Wiki

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

Viking Hermod 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 Hermod 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 BuriDellingForsetiHeimdal.

The riverboat's godmother is Mrs Anne Willan - a world-renown French cooking authority and culinary author (with over 30 cookbooks) and founder of the "La Varenne" professional cooking school in Paris, France (1975). The ship’s christening ceremony was held in Avignon, France. On March 18, 2014, Hermod was inaugurated together with the Viking longships Buri and Heimdal.
