The ship makes port calls of the host countries where the delegates are treated to a country-themed program that includes homestays, interaction with local youth leaders, visits to relevant institutions, and entertains courtesy calls to state leaders.

The 29 youths who comprise the Vietnam delegation were chosen through a strict selection process that requires them to be at their best behavior in representing the nation as a goodwill ambassador.
