The 2022-2023 River Cruises brochure showcases Viking’s first custom-built vessel in the United States, Viking Mississippi, debuting in August 2022 and sailing on the lower and upper Mississippi, between New Orleans and St. Paul.
A highlight itinerary is the new 15-day America’s Great River, sailing nearly the entire length of the Mississippi River.
The new 80-guest Viking Saigon is also featured with the Magnificent Mekong itinerary – a 15-day journey from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City exploring Vietnam and Cambodia with 16 guided tours.
Viking’s entire collection of Christmas cruises are also included featuring the new 10-day Christmas along the Elbe, and the eight-day Mississippi Holiday Season cruise.
Michelle Black, Viking’s managing director ANZ, says this is the first time the company has included two seasons in a new brochure – a full 2022 season and a preview of 2023, allowing agents and their guests to plan and book further ahead. ‘This is a recognition both of what the market has been asking for and the demand we have been seeing,’ she adds.
