Viking Launches 18 New Ships in Europe

New World Record

Viking River Cruises sets a new world record! In a multi-phased event that was the first of its kind in history, Viking River Cruises far surpassed their own record set last year for the most ships ever christened at one time.

Taking place over 24 hours, Viking christened 16 of their award-winning Viking Longships® and on Friday, March 21, they also christened two new, unique river vessels in Porto, Portugal-bringing the total to 18 new ships launched across four countries in five days.

NEW LONGSHIPS FEATURES

DESIGN
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 and a French balcony in the bedroom

ELEGANCE
Viking Longships integrate a patented corridor design and cutting-edge technology with comfortable amenities that reflect current travel trends. New features include a revolutionary all-weather indoor/outdoor Aquavit Terrace that brings the panoramic outdoor river scenery indoors

STATE-OF-THE-ART ENGINEERING
All Longships have sustainability upgrades, such as onboard solar panels and organic herb gardens, and energy-efficient hybrid engines that reduce vibrations. On a Viking Longship, you'll enjoy the smoothest ride on the river
