Review of Viking Magni

The Viking Magni boat cruises on Danube, Rhine and Main rivers in Holland, Germany, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria, Belgium, departing from Amsterdam, Budapest and Basel. This Viking longship is named after Magni (meaning "strong") - in Norse mythology the god of strength, son of Tor (by his lover - the Jotnar giantess Jarnsaxa) and brother to Modi.

The state-of-the-art river ship Viking Magni longship was designed as a “green ship” by the legendary architects Yran & Storbraaten, with solar panels, hybrid energy-efficient engines and organic herb garden. The added benefit of hybrid engines helps for smoother cruising experience.

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.
