Cruise News: WIT Owners sail with new Viking River Cruises Longships

Willamette International Travel’s owners Christina and John Cooper attended the debut of four of Viking’s River Cruises’ longships in Amsterdam on Wednesday, March 21. Destined to sail the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers, they have been an exciting and welcome addition to the travel community.

WIT has enjoyed a long relationship with Viking Cruises, and we can offer a number of discounts and limited opportunities to their luxurious services. Most of our travel agents have sailed on their premium cruises, and can personally attest to the quality of their onboard experiences.

At a capacity of 190 passengers, Viking predicts that these longships and their revolutionary additions promise amazing growth for the European river cruise industry. Some highlights include cabins with balconies, record-breaking suite sizes, and all-weather terraces—all remarkable innovations in cruise development.

As she reported to the Travel Market Report, Christina admired “the extra outdoor space and the balconies…the clean lines, airy contemporary décor.” Several agents remarked similarly in favor of the modern design, the onboard herb garden, and the vibrant colors.
