Viking Vilhjalm - user reviews and comments

Viking Vilhjalm Wiki

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

Viking Vilhjalm 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 Vilhjalm 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.

Vilhjalm longship's godmother is Mrs Beryl Gibson (Northumbria Travel Limited / co-owner). 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. Vilhjalm was christened together with the sister ships Alruna, Egil, Kadlin, Rolf and Tialfi.
