Premier welcomes Viking Orion captain to Bermuda
David Burt, the Premier and tourism minister, presented cruise ship captain Terje Hvidsten with a cedar plaque at a welcoming ceremony on Wednesday.
Captain Hvidsten is currently on the island with the cruise ship Viking Orion, which is based out of Hamilton for the summer.
Lawrence Scott, the transport minister, and Charles Gosling, the Mayor of Hamilton, also presented plaques to Captain Hvidsten.
Viking Orion is scheduled to carry out eight voyages between June 15 and August 3, calling at Hamilton, St George’s and Dockyard. There are hopes that if the voyages are successful, more cruises will be added.
