China’s first large domestically built cruise ship ended its maiden commercial voyage on Sunday, after traveling more than 1,000 nautical miles in seven days and six nights.

Carrying more than 3,000 passengers, the Adora Magic City departed Shanghai’s Wusongkou International Cruise Terminal on January 1 and stopped at ports in the city of Seogwipo on the Republic of Korea’s Jeju Island, as well as the Japanese cities of Nagasaki and Fukuoka, before returning to the Wusongkou terminal.

During the trip, experts from the Dunhuang Academy gave four lectures, demonstrating the art of Dunhuang caves and introducing a digital exhibition jointly organized by the cruise and the academy. While enjoying quality time at sea, guests on board can also enjoy replicas of the region’s artistic treasures.
