Review of Viking Modi

The Viking Modi boat cruises on Rhine, Main and Danube Rivers in the Netherlands, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Slovakia and France. This Viking longship is named after Modi (meaning "angry") - in Norse mythology the brother of Magni (both sons of Thor by the giantess Jarnsaxa). Modi is known as the god of fearlessness, and of the berserkers (warriors who fight with ultimate "crazed" bravery and without any fear).

Join the 2015 Viking Modi 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. You can also choose the 2015 Viking Modi 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.

Modi is the son of the most powerful among all Norse gods - Thor. He inherits Thor's brute strength but is also known for fearlessness and often associated with Norse warriors (berserkers).

Viking Modi wiki

  • Note: To/from Viking Modi boat transfers and airport meet&greet services are included in the fares only when airfares are purchased through the Viking cruise line.
  • Viking Modi 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 Modi 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 Faye Pirie - one of the line's long-serving employees (a Specialist Cruise Consultant). The list of other Viking Cruises longships launched in 2015 includes Astrild, Beyla, Eir, Gefjon, Lofn, Mani, Mimir, Skirnir, Ve, Vidar and Vili.
