Around the world in 117 days

If in a hurry it can be done in 80 days, but on a relaxing world cruise you want to be around the world in 117 days. An Italian-registered cruise ship AID Aaura set sail on Monday from the port city of Hamburg in Germany, on a world cruise of 117 days during which the ship would cross the equator twice and call at approximately 20 countries and 21 ports. These calls include the port of Walvis Bay closer to the end of the nearly four months voyage.

 The first leg of the voyage heads for South America to the port cities of Salvador da Bahia and Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, Montevideo, Uruguay, Buenos Aires, Porte Madryn and Ushuaia in Argentina. The city of Ushuaia is the planet’s southern-most city, located very close the southern tip of South America. AID Aaura will then pass into the Pacific Ocean with a stop-over at a Chilean port.

Then it is crossing the Pacific to Australia, making stopovers in exotic locations like Tahiti, Bora Bora and Fiji. AID Aura then crosses the Indian Ocean with a stopover in Mauritius and then on to the South African coast and ultimately calling at Walvis Bay before a north-bound voyage to the Canary Islands and then on a return leg to Hamburg.
