The National WWII Museum Announces New Elbe River Cruise Collection

The National WWII Museum has announced its “Elbe River Cruise Collection” that will commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Victory in Europe (V-E Day).

Offered onboard the Viking Beyla, there will be two eight-day journeys to choose from: Prague to Berlin (May 1-8, 2025) or Berlin to Prague (May 6-13, 2025).

The “Victory in Europe: The End of the War of the Elbe” itinerary invites guests to explore one of the most storied waterways in military history and its role in ending the war in Europe.

Several scholars will sail onboard to provide additional context to these itineraries. Experts on the Prague-to-Berlin journey include Dr. Alexandra Richie, a historian of Germany and Central and Eastern Europe, with a specialization in defense and security issue, and Dr. Michael Neiberg, the chair of war studies in the Department of National Security and Strategy and a professor of history at the U.S. Army War College.
