Around the World in 80 Days - Pierce Brosnan (1989) - The Rangoon aka The Wan Fu?
The ship that Fogg and Co board to go to HK in the book is called the "Rangoon". The long shot of the ship steaming off to Hong Kong was also actually filmed in Hong Kong and appears to be a shot of our old friend the Wan Fu (the Hongkong Hilton's own pleasure boat). I can't confirm exactly but maybe someone is able to - it looks very similar to the images I've previously posted.
