New Viking Mississippi River Cruises 2022 & 2023

Be a part of an adventure as breathtaking as those of Huckleberry Finn’s when you sail right into the heartlands of America in 2022 & 2023. But unlike the raft escapades from that classic tale, your passage through Mississippi will be in comfort and style with Viking River Cruises.

From the vibrant New Orleans French Quarter to the Nordic Fest at Vesterheim, explore a fusion of cultures on this new voyage. Feel history come alive at iconic sites of the Deep South, such as Vicksburg National Military Park and the opulent estates of wealthy sugar barons, where you will gain insight to events pivotal in shaping the US of today.

This is a feast for the senses, whether you’re savouring the flavours of Creole cuisine in Baton Rouge or BBQ in Memphis; bird-watching along the Flyway or enjoying the spectacular sights of the bayou; or revelling in rhythm and blues at the birthplace of jazz.

Viking Mississippi is a contemporary Scandinavian vessel with capacity for 386-passengers. Inspired by the award-winning Viking Longships®, this state-of-the-art cruise ship offers three itineraries:

8-day cruises between New Orleans – Memphis

8-day cruises between St Louis – St Paul

15-day cruises from St Paul – New Orleans

In Mark Twain’s own words, the Mississippi River “will always have its own way”. Be among the first to join Viking on this spirited journey, and experience wonders that are nothing short of legendary.
