A lot of champagne is being consumed in Europe this week as Viking River Cruises is christening a total of 18 new 190-guest longships. It seems Viking keeps breaking their own record of river cruises christened, last year it was 10 new longship launches in Amsterdam.
Here’s the breakdown for 2014:
- 7 ships in France
- 9 ships in Amsterdam
- 2 in Portugal
With 18 new longships come 18 new godmothers ranging from television personalities to travel executives.
Viking River Cruises are known for docking in the middle of small towns providing unique destinations and experiences for their guests.
