Sailing from and back to Paris, the docking location is incredibly convenient for those who want to experience the Parisian buzz before embarking on a journey to charming French towns along the Seine. As part of Viking’s commitment to being more eco-friendly, all of the Longships in Europe are 100 percent hybrid, including the Fjorgyn. It also has built-in solar panels and shore power. A small library offers curated books from London bookseller Heywood Hill. In addition, the ship provides a stunning vantage point in the Aquavit Terrace & Lounge and the panoramic Sun Deck.
The Fjorgyn is part of Viking’s fleet. Originally started in 1997 with only four ships, Viking now has nearly 90 ships.
