Review of Viking Lofn

The Viking Lofn boat cruises on Rhine, Main and Danube Rivers in the Netherlands, Switzerland, Hungary, Austria, Germany, France, Slovakia and Czech Republic. This Viking longship is named after Lofn - in Norse mythology the goddess of marriages. Love-inspiring, she is bestowed by Odin with the power to melt the hearts of humans and join them in wedlock.

Join the 2015 Viking Lofn Grand European Tour for 15 pleasant days along the Main, Danube and Rhine Rivers. You'll be able to see Holland’s windmills and tulip fields as well as Germany’s fairytale castles and the vineyards of Wachau Valley in Austria. Another chance gives the Rhine Getaway itinerary - an 8-day sailing through four countries, experiencing the lavish landscape of Black Forest region and Holland’s windmills and waterworks, as well as the nightlife of Rüdesheim’s Drosselgasse.

Lofn is a Norse goddess who is so gracious that gods' mightiest melts to her will. Odin, the chief god, even gives permission for arranging marriages.

Viking Lofn wiki

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

Viking Lofn 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 Lofn 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 Karoline Landa - one of the line's long-serving employees (a Controller & Hotel Manager). The list of other Viking Cruises longships launched in 2015 includes Astrild, Beyla, Eir, Gefjon, Mani, Mimir, Modi, Skirnir, Ve, Vidar and Vili.
