Less than two years ago, Viking River Cruises announced a new state of the art $250 million fleet program alongside details of its four vessels which debuted last month. Designed by architects Yran & Storbraaten, the ships, Viking Freya, Viking Idun, Viking Njord and Viking Odin, are the line’s first Longships, a new class of vessel within the Viking fleet.
LC SmartGlass was installed on the Freya & Odin Ships, two of four longship class-vessels launched and is used within each room on each ship to separate bedroom from bathroom creating a bright, spacious interior.
The christening of the four new Viking Longships represents the first time in modern history that four cruise ships have been christened at once, with Viking Odin and Viking Idun christened in Amsterdam and Viking Njord and Viking Freya christened via satellite from the Neptun shipyard in Germany.
Guests at the christening ceremony enjoyed remarks by each godmother and presentations by Hagen and Yran & Storbraaten, the celebrated maritime architects and Viking Longship designers.
