Purposely built and designed to sail on the notoriously shallow Elbe River between Prague and Berlin, Viking Astrild is dubbed a "baby Longship" because it's about half the size of the 190-passenger Viking Longships. Design-wise, though, you won't notice much of a difference on this smaller 98-passenger version of a Longship.
Classical mythology has its cupid. In Nordic culture, it’s Astrild who sets hearts afire—a fabled figure who spreads love, passion and affection. Like her namesake, this beautiful vessel will make you fall in love with river cruising. Nordic-influenced, with sleek and stylish interiors and shade-bearing canvas awnings on deck, Viking Astrild's open deck plan and incredible views make it the perfect place to enjoy a sunny day along the Elbe.
