BON VOYAGE
The Mighty Mississippi
BY LAURA DEL ROSSO
Viking Mississippi
Picture yourself settling into a rocking chair
on the deck of a luxurious ship sailing along
the Mississippi River, while watching some of
America's most historic towns and iconic
landscapes drift past.
Hour by hour, you see the changing sights
and sounds of the country's second longest
river, stretching more than 2,000 miles from
Minnesota south to the Gulf of Mexico.
Now, new ships are raising the Mississippi
River cruise experience to another level.
Viking Cruises' state-of-the-art Viking
Mississippi, with all outside staterooms,
debuts this summer. Last year, American
Queen Steamboat Company introduced its
sleek paddle wheeler, the American Countess,
with expansive river views.
Most Lower Mississippi sailings start or end
in New Orleans, La., the spirited birthplace of
infectious jazz and home to delicious Cajun
and Creole cuisine. On board, guest lecturers
describe the development of the city's
African-American and French culture, and, in
the evening, a local jazz band comes aboard
to perform.
The ships stop at tradition-rich towns such
as St. Francisville, La., built on a bluff
overlooking the river, and Natchez, Miss., which
has 300 beautifully preserved historic homes
along its broad, tree-shaded streets. Shore
excursions also guide you through a Vicksburg,
Miss., park that commemorates a critical Civil
War battle. In Memphis, Tenn., tours bring to
life civil rights struggles, and offer the chance
to hear blues music and sample renowned
Memphis barbecue at the place of their origin.
Longer itineraries follow the Mississippi into
America's heartland. On the stretch from St.
Louis, Mo., to St. Paul, Minn., the northernmost
part of the river, family farms and lush rolling
hills line the winding waterway. Among the
stops: Hannibal, Mo., which celebrates the
legacy of the great Mark Twain.
Back on board, you'll find g acious service,
plenty of public spaces for relaxing and
comfortable, modern staterooms. Each ship
offers entertainment, cultural enrichment and
fine ood inspired by the distinctive American
region that's drifting by outside your window
on the Mississippi.
