The vessel completed a drydock refurbishment on January 28 at China Merchants' shipyard on Mazhou Island.
The cruise liner received complete hull coating including a 10-meter aluminum alloy logo on the funnel/smokestack by the new Chinese cruise brand "Foresee Cruises". The hull art in some way resembles the Princess Cruises' ships hull which features the Princess Seawitch in blue color representing the adventure of cruises around the world. The hull art on Charming features 4 blue waves with 3 white seagulls in the middle on the ship's port and starboard side.
After Princess Cruises unveiled the sale of a couple of its ships in September last year, Sea Princess was handed over in Manila (Luzon Island, Philippines) to Sanya International Cruise Development Co ltd, becoming the second domestic cruise operator in China.
