Can you imagine introducing a whole new region of travel products during the current cruise & travel climate?
Viking River Cruises has enjoyed such great success in serving the American market visiting Europe over the past 23 years that it was only a matter of time before they introduced their take on the long ship to the waterways of the United States itself.
The May 2020 announcement that sailings would commence in April of 2022 was met with such great demand that as of today, July 7 2020, Viking has already opened their 2023 schedule for booking 8-15 day sailings!
The ship looks grand and the itineraries are so well timed to bring the best of the US to domestic and overseas visitors.
As you'd expect from Viking, there are no interior cabins and pretty much every stateroom or suite has a king-sized bed and balcony or veranda of some description. The little extras you've come to love from the brand, such as heated bathroom floors and a 24-hour room service, have also found their way to the Mighty Mississippi.
In terms of styling, if you've enjoyed a sailing with Viking, you may recognize the Explorer's Lounge or Aquavit Terrace. Meaning more of that Norwegian living room-feel while you float between amazing destinations.
While the exclusive period of advanced cabin selection for past Viking guests has come to pass, anyone can now enjoy a flexible deposit and cruise plan for a future sailing.
