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 primaeval 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.

Together with his brothers Ve and Odin, the Norse god Vili kills the primaeval 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 wiki

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

Viking Vili 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 Vili 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.

The riverboat’s godmother is Mrs Henrieta Balisova - one of the line's long-serving employees (a Program Director). The list of other Viking Cruises longships launched in 2015 includes Astrild, Beyla, Eir, Gefjon, Lofn, Mani, Mimir, Modi, Skirnir, Ve and Vidar.
