Viking Hlin wiki

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

Viking Hlin 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 Hlin 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 riverboat's godmother is Mrs Marion Krase - a Neptun Werft GmbH senior employee in the company's "Repairs & Ship Building" department. The ship's christening ceremony was held in Rostock, Germany. On March 18, 2014, Hlin was inaugurated together with the Viking longships Idi, Kara and Kvasir.

This Viking longship is named after Hlin - in Norse mythology the goddess of protection and consolation, one of the handmaidens of goddess Frigg (Odin's wife).
