- I am very proud to be able to hoist the Norwegian flag and register our sixth cruise ship, "Viking Jupiter", in the NIS. That is another, strong signal to the fact that the Norwegian ship register is a competitive alternative. Viking has ordered four additional ships, which are also be registered in the NIS. We are now looking forward to showing "Viking Jupiter" with the Norwegian flag to both guests and ports all over the world, says Torstein Hagen, owner and chairman of Viking Ocean Crises.

The first ship was originally planned to sail under the Malta flag, but this changed prior to completion. Upon delivery on 31 March 2015, "Viking Star" sailed straight into the NIS. One year later, "Viking Sea" followed her.

"Viking Sky" was delivered and registered less than a year after, in January 2017. Already in September the same year, Hagen took delivery of "Viking Sun". Prior to the delivery Wednesday, "Viking Orion" which was registered in June 2018 was the last in line.

With an overall length of 228, 26 meters and guest capacity of 930, "Viking Jupiter" is classified a "small ship".
