I'm very excited about spending two nights on the Rhone River on the Viking Longship Heimdal and then traveling to Bordeaux to experience an abbreviated version of Viking's new itinerary, "Chateaux, Rivers, & Wine" on the Longship Viking Forseti. I'll be reporting back on this fascinating adventure in the next few weeks.
My last Viking cruise (other than the 2013 christening in Amsterdam) was on the Longship Viking Njord in December 2012 on a "Danube Waltz" itinerary from Budapest to Passau. It was my first Christmas market cruise and first week-long cruise on a Longship, and I came away really impressed with the ship. I especially liked the new Aquavit Lounge and our veranda cabin, which featured a full-sized balcony and large bathroom with heated floor. The Viking Njord and the rest of these new Longships are certainly a great addition to the Viking fleet.
