Viking Lif - user reviews and comments

Viking Lif Wiki

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

Viking Lif 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 Lif 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 Sarah Henshall - a veteran of the AAA's (American Automobile Association) "Roadside Assistance" and "Travel" services, and currently the VP of AAA Carolinas "Travel" operations. The ship's christening ceremony was held in Amsterdam, Holland. On March 17, 2014, Lif was inaugurated together with the Viking longships Alsvin, Baldur, Bestla, Delling, Eistla, Gullveig, Ingvi and Magni.
