Cruises from Melbourne

Melbourne is a great place to get off the ship and explore, or spend a few days before embarking on your cruise holiday! A taste of New England in Australia, this low-key but exciting city is easily walkable with centralized attractions and diverse, interesting neighbourhoods. Although not a hugely busy cruise port, Melbourne welcomes a steady stream of ships over the summer months - find a cruise with Princess cruises, a Carnival cruise dealRoyal Caribbean cruises and more.

Cruising to New Zealand from Melbourne is a popular option, and many ships departing Melbourne's Station Pier are headed across the Tasman to enjoy the kiwi summer. The wonderful wilderness of Tasmania is a short hop from Melbourne, as are Adelaide and Sydney, so these are frequently among the destinations for cruises leaving the city. It is also often a port of call for world cruises.

Princess Cruises have ships based in several Australia ports, and Melbourne is one of these. The Dawn Princess is based predominantly there for the next few seasons, so she is a common sight at the pier. Many P&O Australia cruises also use Melbourne as a departure point, and occasionally one may spot a boutique Silversea ship. Cunard's Queens can sometimes be seen in Melbourne as they call in on their way around the globe.

Getting in to Melbourne from the historic Station Pier is easy, with trams running and the occasional free shuttle bus. Once in the city, there is plenty to see and do. Relax with a coffee and watch the Yarra River flow past, or get a taste of the arts scene at Federation Square. Check out the historic Flinders Street Railway Station and Old Melbourne Gaol, shop at the new Docklands precinct or spend a day at the beach in St. Kilda.
