Review of Viking Mimir

The Viking Mimir boat cruises on Rhine, Main and Danube Rivers in the Netherlands, Austria, Slovakia, Germany and Hungary. This Viking longship is named after Mimir (meaning "rememberer") - in Norse mythology the god of wisdom and knowledge. Beheaded during the war between the two groups of gods (Venirs and Aesirs), Mimir's head was later on carried by Odin to receive secret knowledge.

Join the 2015 Viking Mimir 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 Romantic Danube itinerary - an 8-day sailing along the “Blue Danube” to explore fascinating Budapest, tour riverside in Austria’s Wachau Valley and experience the imperial architecture of Vienna.

Mimir has gained his wisdom by drinking from Well of Wisdom and was so wise that the Venir tribe called on him for counsel when the tribes of Aesir and Venir gods were at war. Mimir could not translate the words of guidance, so they beheaded him and sent his head to the Aesirs. Odin embalmed Mimir’s head and cast a spell empowering it to share secrets. This way Mimir guided Odin through the war until the two tribes unified into one.

Viking Mimir wiki

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

Viking Mimir 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 Mimir 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 Jana Hudakova - one of the line's long-serving employees (a Chief Receptionist). The list of other Viking Cruises longships launched in 2015 includes Astrild, Beyla, Eir, Gefjon, Lofn, Mani, Modi, Skirnir, Ve, Vidar and Vili.
