Review for Viking Mississippi to North America River

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and previous experience on two Viking ocean cruises in the Scandanavian countries. First of all boarding was no trouble and very straight forward. We arrived at our penthouse veranda suite which was very nice except for the stench of sewage coming from the bathroom shower . It was reported and after about 3 days the stink had subsided. The cabin was ...

We were on a previous Viking Ocean cruise and it was great. Since we live in Florida during the winter, we thought that it would be fun to go to New Orleans and then cruise the Mississippi. We flew on our own with another couple to New Orleans with Southwest Airlines. The flight was on time, the plane had great leg space, and service was superb. We stayed at the Westin Hotel for two nights (those ...

Good Cruise, but Viking has work to do

We have wanted to do a cruise of the Mississippi River for many years. With the launch of the new Viking Mississippi, we decided to take a roundtrip New Orleans cruise, leaving January 7, 2023. Our overall result was a very relaxing week cruise on the mighty, muddy Mississippi and some acquired knowledge of the region. We understand that Viking made a huge investment in this ship, which was ...

The American Symphony was christened in 2022, it is a lovely ship with so many areas away from your staterooms which are larger than most and beautifully appointed, including a reading room, game room, and office with two computers, which came in handy when getting your boarding pass for your return home . Our stops along the great Mississippi river were Natchez, Vicksburg, St. Francisville, ...

We choose this cruise for the holidays with my elderly mother, she no longer wants to fly internationally, and wanted to try Viking, this fit the bill. We were scheduled to go to Nola one day early, our TA worked with Viking to get us in 2 days early and beat the storm. Precruise at the Westin New Orleans was very nice and Viking reps were present and helpful. Embarkation was quick and we ate ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We were celebrating our 50th anniversary and wanted something that would give us a different look at a vacation. We had never been on a cruise before. We were exceptionally pleased with our choice. The crew members each appeared to enjoy their job and made an extra effort to ensure that if we asked for something, they would find a way to make it happen. We were pleased with our cruise director ...

I chose this Cruise because I wanted to celebrate the holidays in a festive atmosphere. And it was really festive. The boat was decorated with all kinds of Christmas and Holiday decorations. Everybody was in a holiday mood on board. They were lots of Christmas activities and they gave us Christmas presents several nights. On Christmas Day we had all kinds of fun Christmas activities and a gift ...

Service was very slow at dinner in the Restaurant almost every evening. I did not like that we were assigned a time for dinner at the same table every evening with the same guest. You are assigned a 5:30 pm or 7:45 pm seating. I wanted to go on a cruise to socialize with other guest. Entertainment was good. The design of the Living Room where the entertainment was located had blocked views so you ...

I took this cruise in November 2022. (The drop-down menu won't let me change from January) I had cruised previously with American Cruise Lines on a paddlewheel on the upper Mississippi River and I wanted to see the lower Mississippi this year. I learned they had a brand new boat called the Symphony and I wanted to see how it was different from the one cruised on last year. It was very ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We have cruised well over 900 days on ocean going ships and I wanted to try a river cruise. Having lived in Wisconsin and Illinois all our lives, we decided a cruise down the Mississippi River would be a good start. We embarked on the American Cruise Lines ship the Melody on November 4th at Red Wing, Minnesota. Embarkation was very smooth and probably took less than 15 minutes. Our itinerary ...
