History was made when the AIDAcara sailed into Sydney Harbor on Dec. 19, becoming the first AIDA ship to call in Sydney, Australia. T

o mark the occasion, AIDA provided a live broadcast on Facebook for the call, which was part of the ship's 116-day 41-port world cruise.

The ship was docked by Captain Tommy Moller, who sailed past the famous Opera House and docked the vessel at Sydney's state-of-the-art White Bay Cruise Terminal.

The AIDAcara departed, heading to the Great Barrier Reef and then Cairns on Dec. 21, which will be followed by a call in Darwin on Dec. 29. For the New Year, the ship will be at sea with a New Year's Eve party planned, according to AIDA.

Before the world cruise ship docked with around 1,100 guests on board in the Australian metropolis, Captain Tommy Möller drove past the famous shell-shaped Opera House. In the sunshine and bright blue sky we went to the White Bay Cruise Terminal with its fascinating view of the city skyline. The first run "Down Under" watched many spectators enthusiastically via Facebook.
