It's hard to believe it's been five years since Viking River Cruises first debuted their innovative, next generation Viking Longships in 2012 and since then, the company has launched 50 of these river-going vessels, and set two world records in 2013 and 2014! Today, the company sails more than 60 Viking river ships along the waterways of the world from Europe to Asia to Africa; and since my first river cruise in 2012, it has become my preferred, not to mention convenient method of traveling through the heart of Europe!
