Popular European Cruise Line Viking Now Sailing US River Cruises
Popular European cruise line Viking has finally begun operations in the US with its new highly anticipated river cruise vessel, the Viking Mississippi.
And you can probably guess where it’ll be sailing: along the Mississippi River.
The new cruise ship is now traversing the iconic river between New Orleans and St. Paul, Minnesota.
Sailings currently start at $4,000 per guest for eight-day cruises from New Orleans to Memphis or back to the Louisiana hotspot.
And these all-American itineraries have already captured the interest of travelers.
Many itineraries through 2023 are now sold out …
… and interest into the future isn’t slowing down.
To meet this red-hot demand, in 2021, Viking opened bookings for 2024 itineraries ahead of initial expectations.
And a handful of these sailings are now sold out as well, a testament to the strength of the river cruise industry.
But Viking’s newest river cruise wasn’t built to accommodate thousands of passengers.
