Review of Viking Kvasir

The Viking Kvasir boat cruises on Danube, Rhine and Main rivers in Holland, Germany, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria, France, Switzerland, departing from Amsterdam, Basel and Budapest. This Viking longship is named after Kvasir - in Norse mythology the god of knowledge and wisdom, who was created by all the Vanir and Aesir gods out of their saliva.

Viking Cruises “green” longships feature solar panels, hybrid energy-efficient engines and organic herb garden. Viking Emba carries 190 passengers who benefit from the comfortable amenities like flat-panel 40” Sony TVs and in-room refrigerators. Don't forget to try the putting green and the walking track, or have a rest in the library corner.

Viking Kvasir wiki

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

Viking Kvasir 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 Kvasir 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 Monica Petitpierre - Brazilian by birth, involved with various health and social projects, wife of the river cruising industry's banker Cedric Petitpierre (CIC AG bank, Switzerland). The ship's christening ceremony was held in Rostock, Germany. On March 18, 2014, Kvasir was inaugurated together with the Viking longships Hlin, Idi and Kara.
