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.

After plenty of adventures Down Under, AIDAaura will continue her voyage across the Indian Ocean in the direction of Mauritius.
