MODERNIZING MISSISSIPPI EXPLOR ATION From rivers and oceans to expeditions–now Viking brings modern, destination-focused journeys to the Mississippi River WHILE LEADING THE RIVER CRUISE INDUSTRYfor more than two decades, we also reinvented ocean cruising with our small ship experience. Our fleet of elegant ocean ships now sails around the world, with itineraries visiting six continents. In 2022, we will perfect expedition cruising with the launch of Viking Expeditions and two new purpose-built vessels that will sail voyages to the Arctic, Antarctica and North America’s Great Lakes. AND NOW, WE WILL BRING MODERN EXPLORATION TO THE MISSISSIPPIwith destinationfocused journeys along the full length of the river. With the introduction of Viking Mississippi, we set out to create a new kind of ship for the region—one that is streamlined and more modern. A sleek, sophisticated ship for 386 guests, every stateroom features a private veranda or French balcony, allowing you to get closer to your destination. In true Viking style, our ship will offer clean Scandinavian design, light-filled rooms, unique public spaces, fresh regional fare and personalized service. TRAVEL WITH EASE.Just like our other cruises, you will unpack once and relax amid an everchanging canvas of breathtaking landscapes. In many destinations you will dock in the center of town, allowing you to stroll off and begin exploring. THE DESIGN OF OUR SHIP ENHANCES YOUR JOURNEY.Inventive and innovative, Viking Mississippi will modernize the Mississippi River. Designed with expansive windows and indoor/outdoor areas, your destination is always within reach. Also, with the most al fresco dining options on the river, you will have more opportunities to enjoy the fresh air and scenery as you sail. “The premiere luxury river cruise ship operator.” – Alyson Penn, Business Insider 14 VIKING.COM CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: VIKING LONGSHIP®, ASCHAFFENBURG, GERMANY; VIKING OCEAN SHIP, DUBROVNIK, CROATIA; ARTIST’S RENDERING, VIKING MISSISSIPPI; ARTIST’S RENDERING, VIKING EXPEDITION SHIP
