CALUMET -- One of several of the new Viking River Cruise ships, the IDUN was christened March 21 in Amsterdam before an audience of 1000 people from around the world. Gail Wiswedel had the honor of performing this christening and had chosen two "Sacred Vessels," by Calumet Art Center Director Ed Gray, as gifts for the event. One will be on permanent display aboard the IDUN for all to enjoy and the other will be presented to the CEO of the cruise line.
Viking River Cruises operates in several countries and is the largest river cruise line to date. The company has won awards several years in a row including Conde Nast Traveler’s "Gold List" and Travel + Leisure’s "World Best." With the IDUN’s christening a little bit of the Calumet Art Center will be a part of the memory-making trips for years to come.
