Fodor’s Expert Review
Launched in 2022, the Viking Egdir is one of the newest additions to the line’s fleet of some 80 river ships. Launched on the Seine in a Paris naming ceremony alongside seven others, Egdir is one of the company’s 65 Longships, a category that evokes the glory days of actual Vikings sailing to far-away lands. Each Longship is almost identical, with stylish Nordic design and décor common across all craft, including unique offset hallways that allow for spacious state room balconies on one side of the ship. The company has also poured significant resources into creating a squared-off bow and quieter engines in the stern, so that the Egdir, like all the ships in its class, can carry more passengers (190) than river ships from other companies.Read More
The ship is named for a mythological Norse herder who strikes his harp to signal the commencement of the epic battle of Ragnarok. It is sleek in a streamlined, straightforward Scandinavian fashion. Comfortable and fashionable, you can dine al fresco on Aquavit Terrace, play a few holes of miniature golf under the sun, or just relax on the bow deck and watch the castles along the Rhine pass by.
