Mississippi

Weaving drunkenly from its source in Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico, swallowing up ten states along its way, ‘Ol’ Miss’ flows for 3730km past deep limestone bluffs, overgrown bayous and twinkling cities. One of the biggest commercialised waterways in the world, some sections of the mighty river stretch as far as 2.4km from bank to bank. The Mississippi has a life of its own, hosting huge barges carrying cargos of coal, iron and steel across the country, as well as paddle steam boats churning their cherry-red wheels through its muddy waters. A cruise on the Mississippi will take you through some of the most thrilling cities in the US, from New Orleans and Memphis to Natchez and St Louis.

Why cruise Mississippi

It may be just one river, but cruising the Mississippi will take you through a vast and dynamic tapestry of forests, swamps, marshes, estuaries and islands. Whether you’re a Civil War history buff, a Mark Twain fan or fancy diving into the colourful, chaotic world of Mardi Gras, there truly is something for everyone along its muddy banks. Local communities are extremely proud of their relationship with the river, and warmly welcome anyone interested in spending time on its waters. There are many different cruise lines offering excellent itineraries on the Mississippi, but Viking River Cruises and American Cruise Lines are some of the best.
