Viking Longship

One of Viking Cruises’ 30-strong fleet of Viking Longships, the Viking Skadi, introduced this year

We have a look this week at Cybercruises’ Cruise Ships Orderbook for 2014 to find that of the forty-two cruise ships on order for delivery next year, fully thirty-six are for river and coastal cruising, and fourteen of these are Viking Longships for Viking Cruises. Meanwhile news arrived over the weekend that the Queen Elizabeth 2 is due to leave Dubai in October for conversion to a 400-suite hotel ship for an as yet undetermined major city in Asia. And we revisit fare guarantees as they are now offered in the UK market.
