Viking Tialfi - user reviews and comments

Viking Tialfi Wiki

Viking Tialfi is one of the two latest generation Viking Cruises longships modified for cruising on Rhine 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.

Tialfi 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 Tialfi 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. The cabin categories are 8.

The riverboat’s godmother is Mrs Sinead O’Connell ( / industry relations 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. Tialfi was christened together with her sister ships Alruna, Egil, Kadlin, Rolf and Vilhjalm.
