Viking Cruises opens for booking Mississippi River cruises 2023

   July 2, 2020 ,   Cruise Industry

Viking Cruises announced that new 2023 itineraries on Mississippi River are now on sale. The company's first custom-built ship (to be operated under charter) Viking Mississippi is scheduled for inauguration in August 2022. The ultra-luxury riverboat will cruise on Lower and Upper Mississippi River, between homeports St Paul Minnesota and New Orleans Louisiana.

Viking's first USA river cruises had been highly anticipated when they were announced in April. The strong demand led the company to open 2023 sailings sooner than expected. 

Viking Cruises' Mississippi River year-round deployment is a major commitment to economic and tourism development in many communities along the large waterway, with the new sailings expected to bring 5800+ passengers to the region in 2022 and 17,600+ during the full 2023 cruise season.
