The state of Iowa may be landlocked, but that doesn't mean it doesn't have some majestic waterways within its border. With the mighty Mississippi to the east and the Missouri River to the west, it only makes sense for a world-renowned cruise line to take advantage of what the Hawkeye State has to offer.

The internationally famous company, Viking Cruises, will be making its maiden voyage through Iowa waters this coming June.

The cruise line, which is most famous for its river cruises through some of Europe's finest cities, is now bringing its unique adventure to the Midwest.

In its America's Heartland Tour, the cruise will begin near the Arch in St. Louis, Missouri. It will then make a pit stop in the town of Hannibal to see the home of one of America's great authors, Mark Twain.
