Six new longship vessels in 2012
Viking River Cruises says it will speed up introduction of its revolutionary new Longships series of vessels and launch six in 2012. Four of the vessels had been scheduled to launch next year as part of the company's USD 250 million expansion. Viking Freya (March 22nd), Viking Idun (March 23rd), Viking Odin (March 24th), and Viking Njord (March 28th) will launch in 2012. Viking Embla and Viking Aegir will be ready in July and August, respectively.
Four new vessels in 2013
Their original plan is to introduce 10 new Longship-class ships by 2014. The additional four vessels will be christened in 2013. The Longships are being designed by Yran & Storbraaten.
