Hu said the ship still needs equipment testing and installation, which will be finished in July before a September delivery to the owner Sunstone Ships Inc.

Sunstone, the world’s leading provider of expedition vessels, has ordered 10 of the cruise liners from the Chinese shipbuilder.

The shipbuilding started in March 2018. Niels-Erik Lund, president and CEO of Sunstone, said the progress has been going well, which represents China’s superb management in the shipbuilding industry.
