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 Magni wiki

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

Viking Magni 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 Magni 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 Vicky Garcia - co-owner and COO of the "Cruise Planners" (booking agency /sales representative of the "American Express Travel" company). The ship's christening ceremony was held in Amsterdam, Holland. On March 17, 2014, Magni was inaugurated together with the Viking longships Alsvin, Baldur, Bestla, Delling, Eistla, Gullveig, Ingvi and Lif.
