I bet it isn't as long as they claim.

I don't think real Vikings ever apologized.

Wars have started over less.

Ride Captain Ride

Probably why they stopped pillaging all those years ago.

They're gonna need a lot more batteries & mead.

Viking boats wreaking havoc in the British Isles? So nothing's changed in a thousand years.

Key quotes:
"We scouted the route to make sure there were no low bridges but we failed to think about power cables," he said. "So, lesson learned, we are never rolling with the mast up again - she will be coming down and staying down."

Always roll with your mast down .. got it.

At least it wasn't an outbreak of norovirus on a singles cruise, or crabs coming ashore on the captain's dingy, although I don't think those occurrences are exclusive of Viking, Scottish, or even Carnival longboats.
