In 2012, there were six. In 2013, 10 more. And now in 2014, in an unprecedented, world-record breaking event that spanned two days but yet only 24 hours in Amsterdam; Avignon, France; and Rostock, Germany; Viking River Cruises christened 16 more Viking Longships for a grand total of 30 new ships in three years! With the recent explosion of the river cruising industry and with Viking's unrivaled marketing savvy, it comes as no surprise that this industry leader who currently enjoys 48 percent market share, fills these ships as quickly as they can build them. And the ceremony was later certified by Guinness World Records as the 'The Most Ships Inaugurated in One Day by One Company.' If you didn't know, Viking held the previous record for 10 ships launched in a single day in Amsterdam 2013. Let's celebrate in true Viking fashion, the events of the day followed by a show-stopping gala at the Pont du Gard later that evening—an unforgettable inaugural event for all!

Have you ever wondered what life is like on board a Viking River Cruises longship as you cruise from one splendid destination to the next? I invite you to savor the journey as well as the destination on this voyage, and you'll find that the time on board can be just as sublime as the exciting destinations you visit along the way. These are the highlights of my recent voyage with Viking last December, my "Danube Waltz" from Germany to Hungary—with unforgettable moments, sneak peeks behind the scenes and connecting with new friends and cultures.
