Review of Viking Njord

The Viking Njord boat cruises on Danube river in Austria, Germany, Hungary, Slovakia, departing from Budapest, Nurnberg and Passau. This Viking longship is named after Njord/Njordr - in Norse mythology the god of the sea, husband to goddess Skadi and father to Freya and Freyr.

Viking Cruises Njord ship was designed by the legendary architects Yran & Storbraaten, standing behind Seabourn Yachts. This river cruise boat offers state-of-the-art patented design, luxury and engineering. All Viking Longships offer guests more ways for personalizing their trip.

Viking Njord wiki

  • Note: To/from Viking Njord boat transfers and airport meet&greet services are included in the fares only when airfares are purchased through the Viking cruise line.
  • Viking Njord 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 Njord 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 Gail Wiswedel - an exceptional honor given to Viking River Cruises company's most loyal passenger. The christening ceremony was held in Rostock Germany. On March 21, 2012, Njord was inaugurated together with the Viking longships Freya (both in Rostock), and via live satellite video link-up with Amsterdam - also with Idun and Odin.
