Review of Viking Rinda

The Viking Rinda boat cruises on Seine River, departing from Paris France. This Viking longship is named after Rinda/Rindr - in Norse mythology a princess and giantess (daughter of king Billing the Ruthenian). She was tricked and impregnated by god Odin (disguised as medicine woman) giving birth to Vali - the prophesied avenger for the Baldur's death by his brother Hodur.

Viking Rinda - user reviews and comments

Viking Rinda Wiki

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

Viking Rinda 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 Rinda 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-center shifting of the deck's corridor.

The riverboat's godmother is Eszter Volner - daughter of Dr Pal Volner (prominent Hungarian politician and jurist, member of the country's parliament). born in Budapest studies tourism and classical music (voice and violin). The ship’s christening ceremony was held in Amsterdam, Holland, setting a Guinness World Record for "Most Ships Inaugurated in One Day by One Company". On March 20, 2013, Rinda was inaugurated together with the Viking longships Aegir, Atla, Bragi, Embla, Forseti, Jarl, Skadi, Tor and Var. Four of the longships were present in Amsterdam, while the other six attended the ceremony via live satellite video link from the Neptun Werft's shipbuilding yard in Rostock, Germany.
