Fascinating South America
AIDAaura will set sail from Hamburg on October 26, 2020, and will reach San Antonio, Chile, after a 36-day voyage.

This cruise comes to an end on December 1, 2020.

Sun, South Seas, Sydney
The second leg of the cruise starts from Chile and will head west to Mauritius. This 48-day cruise from December 1, 2020, to January 18, 2021, will take in destinations including Tahiti, Bora Bora, New Caledonia, Tonga and Fiji where guests will have the opportunity to snorkel among schools of colorful fishes, ray and marine turtles.
In Australia, the ports of call will include metropolises such as Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. One dazzling highlight of this cruise is New Year’s Eve in Sydney. Guests have the chance to enjoy the world-famous fireworks against the legendary backdrop of the Sydney Opera House and the Harbor Bridge, and welcome in the new year from the other end of the world. After plenty of adventures Down Under, AIDAaura will continue her voyage across the Indian Ocean in the direction of Mauritius.

Discovering South Africa
AIDAaura will set out on the third leg of her world cruise on January 18, 2021. Starting from the island paradise of Mauritius, the 33-day cruise firstly heads for Madagascar.

Table Mountain and the view from the Lion’s Head in Cape Town, the animal world of the savannas, the gigantic sand dunes of the Namib Desert – just a few of many highlights that guests will experience in Southern Africa.
