The part about a Viking funeral that makes it special is actually the building of the raft/ boat by the community, setting it adrift and setting it on fire. You watch your kin burn in the water, the fire extinguishes. Then drink. Get it.

So she may be saying she wants a community send off, when she has passed, on a floating vessel that the community burns and sinks.
