Paul, why do you call them a "luxury cruise line" when so little is defined. The Passenger Space Ratio is not the best and you don't know very much about the service, food, or how the ships will be outfitted. Viking River Cruises are certainly NOT luxury cruises.
Your tie in of a "possibly" unrelated interview with Mark Conroy about his time with Royal Viking is somewhat offputting.
