Viking Longship Modi

4.8/5 |
Viking Longships integrate a patented corridor design* and cutting-edge technology with comfortable amenities that reflect guest preferences and current travel trends. These new features include a revolutionary all-weather indoor/outdoor Aquavit Terrace that reinvents the onboard lounge experience by bringing the panoramic outdoor river scenery indoors with retractable floor-to-ceiling glass doors, allowing guests to enjoy the views and dine al fresco. Accommodating 190 passengers in 95 staterooms, Viking Longships have a patented layout that allows for two Explorer Suites - the largest river cruise suites in Europe - as well as seven two-room Veranda Suites with a full-size veranda in the living room and a French balcony in the bedroom; 39 Veranda Staterooms with full-size verandas; and 22 French Balcony Staterooms. Additionally, all Longships have sustainability upgrades, such as onboard solar panels and organic herb gardens, and energy-efficient hybrid engines that also reduce vibrations for a remarkably smooth ride.

Grand European Cruise

| pre-trip to Prague then Budapest to Amsterdam
So much good food! Inclusion of beer & wine with every meal was a real bonus for us and meant did not need to have the silver spirits package. The crew as amazing! Very attentive. I was ill and confined to my cabin one day and the maitre'd delivered soup and ginger ale to my stateroom. It was the suggestion of our usual dinner server, Mae, to send the ginger ale. Mae was extremely attentive. On German night, when I could not eat pork due to an allergy, she had the chef prepare a salmon dinner for me which was one of the best meals I had on the entire cruise. Would travel this ship and this crew again. Made some lifelong friends as well.

Very nice cruise

| Grand European Budapest to Amsterdam
First time we have been able to enjoy our veranda. We were lucky with almost no rain and great temperatures. Some guests were disappointed with some of the optional tours. We just did the included ones. Guides were quite good. There was always a leisure group with an easier slower pace. Cabins are well organized but not spacious. Fellow guests can make or break a trip. Viking attracts passengers that are usually a very pleasant group to travel with. This is a great trip for first time travelers to Europe or first time river cruisers. We had traveled Viking several times pre COVID and had noticed a decrease in quality. Quality was back to what we expected from Viking. Several passengers that booked directly with Viking and used Viking air did have some problems with flights.

Viking Longship Modi

| From Budapest to Amsterdam
Would have preferred a choice, instead of shopping possibly touring a museum if available. In Vienna the Lipizzaner extra excursion write-up should make it clear that you will NOT get to take pictures or touch the horses or see them out of their stalls! This was a BIG disappointment, and far below my expectations. If I had known we would only get to see the horses in their stalls resting I would have chosen a different excursion. Touring the tulip gardens in Amsterdam was outstanding!

Cruise

| Amsterdam & Budapest
Tours were just right for our age.

Not Quite a River Cruise, but Still Fun

| Budapest to Amsterdam
Viking officials knew for months that the water levels were low and they should have given passengers the option of cancelling or rescheduling the cruise. Even with the changes, we did have a nice time, but it was not the river cruise we expected.

Explore the Low Countries

Enjoy a fascinating exploration of the Low Countries. Explore 5 countries beginning with medieval Ghent and canal-laced Amsterdam. Then set sail for the Rhine, Main and Danube Rivers, passing elegant castles, emerald vineyards and cultural capitals along the way.

 

Norse Heritage

Modi is the son of Thor, the most powerful of the Norse gods. Though he inherits his father’s brute strength; he is also known for his fearlessness. Boundless courage emboldens his physical strength all the more. Modi’s courage sends him into a blind fury while at war. Because of this, he is often associated with the Norse warriors known as berserkers. These soldiers, like Modi, fight as if in a wrathful trance with little care for their own lives. The phrase “going berserk” dates back to the blind bravery exhibited by Modi.
