The quickest southbound transit time is 24 days from Charleston to Auckland or 28 days Charleston to Sydney and the quickest northbound is 26 days from Auckland to Philadelphia or 37 days Melbourne to Philadelphia. The full 70-day round trip starts at €7,085 (about £6,075 or US $10,125) per person and one-way bookings are possible.
