My voyage on HS Beethoven started on the 16th of February in the port of Hong Kong where I joined the vessel together with my husband. The ship was chartered for CMA CGM and the trade took us from China and Taiwan to Australia and New Zealand with a bonus port in New Caledonia. As a complete round Hong KongHong Kong lasted 7 weeks, we stayed on board three rounds which extended our voyage to 4 months, 3 weeks and 4 days.
