Viking River Cruises had announced in December that it was expanding its 2013 newbuild order from an initial eight to 10 ships, which will bring the total number of Viking Longships in operation along the waterways of Europe to 16 by the end of the year. Last year, we were in Amsterdam for a similar christening of six Viking Longships. You can find coverage of that event — and learn more about these innovative vessels — at the links below.

This past December, I did a Christmas Markets cruises on Viking Odin, and after spending a week on the Viking Longship, I now know there are at least six aspects that differentiate this vessel from its competitors. See Six Points Of Differentiation: Viking Odin Review
