Viking has introduced a handful of new inaugural Mississippi cruises for its launch season next year on the iconic US waterway. The sailings will be operated aboard Viking’s new 386-guest purpose-built state-of-the-art Viking Mississippi, which is inspired by the Viking Longships operated in Europe.
The cruise line has opened bookings for four new voyages, including three sailings of its 15-day America’s Great River itinerary in July and August – a month earlier than the originally planned 20 August debut which sold out.
