Viking River Cruises Announces Four New Ships for 2012

Viking River Cruises has announced it plans to build four new river cruise ships as part of its $250 m fleet development programme. The new ships will be ready for the 2012 river cruise season, this is the second time in 10 years that Viking River Cruises has built new river cruise ships.

The brand new ships will be called Viking Freya, Viking Idun, Viking Njord and Viking Odin and have been designed by maritime architects Yran & Storbraaten who have recently designed cruise ships for Disney and Seabourn. Each of these new "longships" will be 443 feet long with 95 staterooms per ship.

The new river cruise ships will feature the largest suites in Europe, featuring separate sleeping and living rooms as well as more full-size rooms and full-size verandas than other European river cruise vessels. Plus, three-quarters of staterooms will feature a veranda, French balcony or both.

Sustainability upgrades will include energy-efficient hybrid engines, solar panels and an onboard organic herb garden.

The new river cruise ships are scheduled to sail four European itineraries, including the 10-day "Tulips & Windmills," eight-day "Romantic Danube," 15-day "Grand European Tour" and eight-day "Danube Waltz."  

Viking's all-inclusive pricing includes accommodations, port tax, onboard meals, daily guided shore excursions and more. The Viking Longships are currently available for booking.
