of the AIDAaura World Cruise. Three exclusive stages can be booked for this
voyage as part of the AIDA Selection explorer program. Availability is limited.
On its World Cruise from October 28, 2019, to February
22, 2020, AIDAaura will travel to 41 ports in a total of 17 countries. In
addition to Australia, some highlights on this great adventure include New
Zealand, southern Africa, Rio de Janeiro, Tierra del Fuego, Tahiti, Bora Bora,
Mauritius, and lots of other dream destinations. Some gems will be visited for
the first time in the history of AIDA – the Cook Islands in the middle of the
Pacific, three new ports in New Zealand, Kangaroo Island and Esperance in
Australia, Maputo in Mozambique, and East London in South Africa.
The duration of the cruise stages varies from 34 to 48

Antonio in 35 days, from San Antonio to Mauritius in 48 days, or from Mauritius
to Hamburg in 34 days.
