Adora’a Chinese Built Cruise Ship Embarks on 9-Day Sea Trial Run

Adora Magic City

The Adora Cruises newbuild for the Chinese market has embarked on a set of sea trails set to take nine days.

The Adora Magic City will now be put through the paces before returning to the outfitting dock in Shanghai, where work will continue to finish the Vista-class ship, which is due to enter service later this year from Shanghai.

A second set of sea trials is scheduled for August, according to Chinese news media.

Adora Cruises is a joint venture between China State Shipbuilding Corporation and Carnival Corporation.
