Review of Viking Idi

The Viking Idi boat cruises on Danube, Rhine and Main in Holland, Germany, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria, departing from Amsterdam, Passau, Basel and Budapest. This Viking longship is named after Idi - in Norse mythology a frost giant, son of Olvadi (the wealthiest among all Storm Giants) and brother to Gangr/Gang and Thiazi/Thiassi.

Viking Cruises longship Viking Idi, just like her sisters, was designed as a “green ship” by the legendary architects Yran & Storbraaten, with solar panels, hybrid energy-efficient engines and organic herb garden.

Viking Idi wiki

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

Viking Idi 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 Idi represents the line's latest Longship-class river boat design. Viking Cruises longships feature energy-efficient hybrid engine technology, solar panels and an 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-center shifting of the deck's corridor.

The riverboat's godmother is Mrs Regula Oderbolz - managing director at UBS AG (the Switzerland's biggest bank and financial services company), also director of the bank's "Trade - Export Finance" and "Advisory - Transaction Management" departments. The ship's christening ceremony was held in Rostock, Germany. On March 18, 2014, Idi was inaugurated together with the Viking longships Hlin, Kara and Kvasir.
