Earlier today Viking River Cruises christened 10 190-passenger longships  in Amsterdam, making them the only cruise line in the world to launch that many vessels in one day. That’s a lot of godmothers!

Viking Aegir, Embla, Bragi and Skadi, are in Amsterdam while the Viking Atla, Forseti, Jarl, Rinda, Tor and Var, remain in Rostock, Germany receiving final touches before launched.

Today’s christening more than doubles last year’s event when two ships were named pierside in Amsterdam and two from the ship yard via satellite.

At 443 feet long, Viking’s Longships has some of the most innovative and eco-friendly ships sailing today.

What’s next? 24 Viking Longships in 2014.
