Viking has set a date to release long-awaited details on its
launch of American river cruises.
The company has sent invitations for an April 7 event in New
Orleans, where chairman Torstein Hagen “officially reveals the
introduction of modern river cruising in the U.S.”
The company has long been rumored to be preparing the
launch, and in recent years has inked agreements to dock along the
Mississippi. Last week, the Dubuque City Council approved an agreement with
Viking to split the cost of building a new $1.8 million dock for riverboats.
