No New Cruise Ships for 6 Months? We Can Still Celebrate With an Inaugural Giveaway

September 8, 2011 | By | No Comments

As far as fevers go, “new cruise ship fever” tops the list. But according to our new-build order chart, it’ll be March 2012 before the next vessel, Viking Freya, debuts. That’s a long time.
Still, we thought a little giveaway might help everyone get over the lack of smashed Champagne bottles and pseudo-celebrity godmothers. We’ve acquired a lot of “inaugural swag” in our years covering ship launches — commemorative coins, model ships, ship-in-glass paper weights … logo electric salt and pepper dispensers. Anyone who’s subscribed to the Lido Deck Blog as of Friday at 5 p.m. EDT will be automatically entered to win two of these fantastic keepsakes (pictured).
