Review of Viking Tor

The Viking Tor boat cruises on Danube and Rhine rivers in Holland, Germany, France, Switzerland, departing from Amsterdam, Budapest, Basel, Nurnberg, and Passau. This Viking longship is named after Tor/Thor/Dorr - in Norse mythology the mighty, red-haired and fierce-eyed "hammer god" of thunder and storms, protector of humankind, son of Odin and husband to the golden-haired goddess of the earth Sif.

Viking Tor wiki

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

Viking Tor 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 Tor 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 Marit Barstad - sister of Torstein Hagen (Viking Cruises' chairman and CEO), she's currently working as manager in the health sector in the town of Ski (near Oslo, Norway). 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, Tor was inaugurated together with the Viking longships Aegir, Atla, Bragi, Embla, Forseti, Jarl, Rinda, Skadi 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.
