Mississippi cruising and the colour of Mardi Gras with Viking

Savvy travellers are locking in their 2022 and 2023 cruise dates now to avoid disappointment, and one of the hottest tickets has to be for the Mardi Gras festivities in New Orleans, in America’s deep south.

Mardi Gras arrived in America in 1699, when French-Canadian explorer Pierre Le Moyne d’Iberville camped downriver from the future site of New Orleans, naming the spot Point du Mardi Gras and holding a small gala. Mardi Gras as we know it today got going in New Orleans soon after the city’s founding in 1718, and now annually attracts more than 1 million visitors. 

Viking offers four itineraries that give you the opportunity to experience the soul of the deep south and perhaps take in the lights, colour and music of Mardi Gras.
