Telegraph: Sailings from Britain to Australia a step closer

Plans to revive a regular passenger service between Southampton and Sydney have moved a step closer.

Travelling via two or three primary routes – east via South Africa and the Suez Canal or west via The Panama Canal, depending on the time of year, the journey to Australia's west coast is expected to take 25 days, plus an additional three to Sydney.

Operating a monthly service on the first week of each month and stopping only to pick up and drop off passengers, allowing for a day in port, the new voyage does not set out to emulate the cruising experience. "It’s a journey, not a cruise. It will offer an alternative for those who want to visit Australia but who for whatever reason can't or prefer not to fly there.”

I can't decide if this would be an interesting adventure, or 25 days of boredom. There will be some interesting port stops along the way (to be determined, but they mention Cape Town and Singapore).
