Viking Orion Maiden Call to Tokyo
This week NCCJ’s ED Anette Yamamoto-Hansen joined Charge d’Affaires ad interim Tord Tukun from the Norwegian Embassy for a guided tour on board Corporate Member Wilhelmsen's newest vessel; the Viking Orion. Currently docked in Tokyo as a part of her maiden voyage across the world, the Viking Orion is the first Norwegian flagged cruise ship to reach Japan in over 20 years. The vessel is currently on its way towards Sapporo, and along with a heartfelt thank you to Viking Cruises and the rest of the Wilhelmsen group for the eminent experience we wish the Captain and crew a bon voyage!
