The newly-delivered 6-passenger CMA CGM Carl Antoine trades between Asia and East Coast South America

With all the ship and route changes occurring at CMA CGM this year two South America-Asia routes that had not recently been available have now been revived.

One route (ACSA2) connects Chinese ports, Hong Kong and Taiwan with Mexico, Panama, Colombia, Peru and Chile while the other route (SEAS) connects Singapore, Hong Kong and Chinese ports with Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay.

The ACSA2 service is now being offered by two ships, the CMA CGM Hydra and CMA CGM Thalassa, while the recently-delivered (2017) CMA CGM Carl Antoine has been placed onto the SEAS service. Each ship can carry up to six passengers in three double cabins.

Each route offers a full round voyage of 84 days, but by crossing the Andes between Argentina and Chile, one can also construct a full round-the-world itinerary via Asia and South America. The actual port rotations follow:
