Mississippi river cruise

Review for a North America River Cruise on Viking Mississippi

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We recently traveled with Viking from New Orleans to Memphis and overall we had a great time. The food was great and the two large dining venues and staggered excursion departure times do a good job of separating guests so you never really felt like you were traveling with nearly 400 other people. Most of the guides for our excursions were outstanding. We loved the WWII museum and think it ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We loved the cruise on Florida rivers after many cruises in the gulf and oceans we enjoyed the calm river cruise The ship was a bit dated but the crew and personnel were very attentive. Food was excellent with many choices and sometimes high level entrees like lobster and prime rib. A smaller ship with only 90 passengers allowed us to meet many of the passengers. The tours were well done ...

The ship was beautiful the food was excellent and service was great. Bartenders very personable and knowledgeable. The bad was the excursions. Getting from the hotel to the ship involved waiting at a lunch place for 3 hours and getting from the ship to the Memphis hotel took a 5 hour bus ride and a 1 hour wait on line to check into hotel. They should have handed out the keys on the bus as you came ...

For me this cruise was like watching a high school production of “Let’s sail the Missisippi” with a $13,000 ticket price

I paid for two lower level cabins. We traveled as two single women celebrating the end of a tough work year. Each was about $7,000. The ship is new and is beautiful. The living room (central event and sitting area) is very nice. The couches are really low on the ship and many elderly people couldn't get up without a lot of effort however. The bar is laid out nicely and is a friendly place to go. ...

Empress not up to standard of American Queen

This company has gone down hill. This was our second cruise with American Queen. We took the Queen from New Orleans to Memphis in Nov 2019. It was amazing; great food; great service; great tours. We were so excited to go on another cruise after the success of our first one. We were so disappointed with the Empress. Between the cruise and airfare, we (my husband and I) paid almost $10,000. ...

Interest in the Lower Mississippi and in the excursions especially Memphis. Boat was only 15 months old and it was very nice; Service was overall very good, especially the wait staff. However the food was a major disappointment. There was not much variety and oftentimes it was not hot when served. Stop in Greenville, MS was a real highlight of the trip. The food and music was excellent. I ...

We just returned from a 7 day cruise down the Mississippi from Memphis to New Orleans. We had waited a full year after maiden voyage to allow Viking to work out any kinks in the cruising process involving a brand new vessel. We were also hoping that the record low Mississippi River levels would not be a factor again this year after the severe drought from last year (lightning doesn't strike twice, ...

We had booked a cruise from the north to the south of France for May 2020 which, of course, was cancelled due to Covid. Viking offered a 20% bonus to leave the money with them and so we later applied the credit to the Mississippi cruise. Why? This is an area of the USA that we have never explored and as a professional photographer I thought I could capture images of places that are not well ...

A personable food service crew, with some amusing stars in the upstair buffet. The food was not a enjoyable as what we ate on the Viking Sky last year, but our fellow passengers seemed to be satisfied. We ate all but two of our meals upstairs as the main dining room was too noisy for enjoyable dining. Some steaks and the salmon were quite good and the hamburgers at lunch were the best cruise ...

The boat holds 22 passengers and we only had 9. The service onboard was top notch. The food and cocktails were super. The expedition leader, Jeremy, was so knowledgeable and offered options for every level of activity. We hiked (easy and moderate), kayaked, and rode a skiff daily. There were evening talks and movies. The staff was friendly and always helpful. This was the San Juan Islands ...
