Review of Viking Jarl

The Viking Jarl boat cruises on Danube, Rhine and Main rivers in Holland, Germany, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria, Belgium, departing from Amsterdam, Budapest and Nurnberg. This Viking longship is named after Jarl - in Norse mythology the noble son of god Heimdal (who disguised as a human fathered Jarl and his 2 brothers, Karl and Thrall, thus creating the three main social classes, respectively, nobility/earls, freemen and serfs).

Viking Jarl was also designed by the legendary Yran & Storbraaten. This new vessel offers state-of-the-art patented design, luxury and engineering. All Viking Longships offer guests more ways to personalizing their trip. Choose from the various stateroom classes, ship locations and onboard entertainment options to enjoy sailing through the scenery, while enriching time in Europe’s remarkable destinations.

Viking Jarl wiki

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

Viking Jarl 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 Jarl 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 Sabine Rhabek - founding member of the "AKH Wien"'s emergency room team (AKH stands for "Vienna General Hospital", the city's University medical centre), who also worked as a nurse at the UN's "Mission Hospital" in Iran during Gulf War I. The ship’s christening ceremony was held in Amsterdam, Holland, setting a Guinness World Record for "Most Ships Inaugurated in One Day by One Company". On March 20, 2013, Jarl was inaugurated together with the Viking longships Aegir, Atla, Bragi, Embla, Forseti, Rinda, Skadi, Tor and Var. Four of the longships were present in Amsterdam, while the other six attended the ceremony via live satellite video link from the Neptun Werft's shipbuilding yard in Rostock, Germany.
