Review of Viking Vili

The Viking Vili boat cruises on Rhine, Main and Danube Rivers in Holland, Germany, Austria, Hungary and Slovakia. This Viking longship is named after Vili (meaning "will") - in Norse mythology the god who together with his brothers Odin and Ve killed the primeval world's ruler and creator of the race of giants - the Ymir monster. From its corpse these gods created the heavens and earth. After that, from two trees they created the first human couple - Embla (woman) and Askr (man). God Vili gave them the intelligence and the sense of touch.

Join the 2015 Viking Vili Grand European Tour for 15 pleasant days along the Main, Danube and Rhine Rivers. You'll be able to see Holland’s windmills and tulip fields as well as Germany’s fairytale castles and the vineyards of Wachau Valley in Austria.

Viking Vili cruise ship

Together with his brothers Ve and Odin, the Norse god Vili kills the primeval creature Ymir, ending this way the giants' rule. From Ymir's body, the brothers create heaven and earth. From the wood of two trees they create Ask and Embla - the first humans. Viking Vili hosts 190 guests in 95 staterooms. The Vili ship boasts the same design elements as the other Viking Longships, featuring deluxe accommodations, streamlined Scandinavian interiors and exceptional engineering. Viking Longships have new features including the revolutionary all-weather Aquavit Terrace bringing the outdoor scenery indoors, allowing passengers to enjoy the river views and al fresco dining. The Longships have two Explorer Suites which are the largest in Europe as well as seven Veranda Suites (two-room) with a veranda and a French balcony. The 39 Veranda Staterooms feature full-size balconies and there are also 22 French Balcony Staterooms. All Viking Longships, including Viking Vili boast organic herb gardens and onboard solar panels. Their hybrid engines are energy-efficient and reduce vibrations for a smooth ride.
