Default Viking River Cruises Christens Four New Ships Today March 21, 2012

Today, Viking River Cruises christened four brand new ships in Amsterdam. I'm currently sailing aboard the spectacular Viking Odin.

The extraordinary success of the line has allowed them to introduce these four new ships with two more to follow this year, and they have an additional six ships on order for 2013 and the option for yet another six in 2014. Here are some photos below from the event.

Jason, I know your post was from last year but I have a few questions. My wife and I just received a brochure from Viking. Did u enjoy the new longboat? Did you use the free wifi onboard? What do you do at night?
