Viking Rolf Review

Review of Viking Rolf

Longship Viking Rolf boat cruises on Seine River, departing from homeport Paris City, France. This Viking longship is named after the Viking chieftain Rolf ("Rolf the Ganger" or "Rollo"). In 911 he sailed down the Seine to surround Paris but was defeated by King Charles. Rolf accepted the offer to protect the region from Viking attacks and was granted land in Normandy, becoming First Duke of the region.

Viking Rolf is among the newest longships in Viking River Cruises fleet. The riverboat features innovative corridor configuration (patented design), modern engineering and technologies, signature Scandinavian-themed decor, premium stateroom amenities, itinerary-based and expert-led enrichment program, themed onboard entertainment, the efficiency of public spaces, the signature lounge Aquavit Terrace and numerous cabins with step-out balconies. Each of the Viking's longship-class riverboats also has two of the European river cruising industry's largest suites.

Viking Rolf - user reviews and comments

Viking Rolf Wiki

Viking Rolf is one of the two latest generation Viking Cruises longships modified for cruising on Seine river. 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 Rolf 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. Viking Rolf features Suite accommodations with 2 separate rooms - a bedroom with French balcony and a living room with a balcony. All cabins have a max capacity of 2 passengers per cabin. 75% of the staterooms have a balcony. Cabin categories are 8.

Riverboat’s godmother is Mrs Lisa Anciaux (AAA Washington / travel products director). The ship's naming ceremony was held in Amsterdam on March 1, 2016. Traditionally for Viking River Cruises, this was another "group christening" for 6 longships. Rolf was christened together with sisterships Alruna, Egil, Kadlin, Tialfi and Vilhjalm.
