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

To 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 then 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.
