    The Viking Njord is one of the four Longships christened by Viking River Cruises in 2012. The river cruise line christened 10 more Longships in 2013 and plans to launch a dozen more in 2014, so this class of ship will ultimately have the largest number of "sisters" sailing European rivers and waterways.

    The Viking Njord and the other Longships have clean, classic Scandinavian design and decor. These photos, which were taken on a Danube River Christmas market cruise from Budapest to Passau, provide a nice overview of the Viking Njord.
