Default Rolling On the Viking River

Rolling On the Viking River
by Paul Motter

If you have not yet heard, Viking River Cruises is on a roll. One could say they are "rolling on the rivers." In fact, according to recent statements made by the company CEO, Tor Hagen, Viking River will soon be rolling on more than its current slate of mainly European rivers. The company is headed to America to start rolling on the Mighty Mississippi and its tributaries.

Viking River reportedly plans to build a brand new boat to operate on the Mississippi River, which will be a departure in style from the two U.S.-based companies already operating Mississippi riverboats where the boats are replicas of traditional early-American Paddle-wheel Steamers. The Viking River vessel will be long and low, similar to the company's latest design for European sightseeing boats which it calls its "Longships."
