Viking plans for 10 new Longships

With demand continuing to grow for Europe river cruises, Viking said it will add 10 new Longships to its fleet in 2025 and 2026.

Eight of the ships will sail the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers, and two will sail the Seine.

Five ships will be delivered in 2025, five in 2026. The additional 10 ships will bring the company’s river fleet to 90.

Each Longship can accommodate up to 190 guests and features Viking’s signature Scandinavian design and its indoor/outdoor Aquavit Terrace.

Viking said the new ships will have a hybrid propulsion system and will be equipped for shore power to reduce reliance on fuel while in port. Solar panels on the ships will contribute to energy efficiency.
