Melbourne Cup Cruises: The Fillies and the Fashions

Melbourne Cup Cruises: The Fillies and the Fashions

 

What is it?

Australia's Melbourne Cup is one of the country's biggest events- not only on the sporting calendar, but also on the social and fashion calendars. It is a battle of the thoroughbreds- horses that is- which takes place on the Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne. Racing starts on the first Tuesday in November every year, and there are plenty of other events surrounding the official racing, one of the most important being the "Fashions On The Field" prizegiving. Hats, fascinators and high-fashion dresses keep spectators almost as entertained as the horses do.

 

The Cup Cruise Options

P&O Australia and Carnival are both currently offering Melbourne Cup cruises.

  • P&O's cruises are 6 nights, leaving from Sydney and spending 3 days and 2 nights in Melbourne so that passengers can enjoy the full array of events. Tickets and transfers to the racecourse are included on the cruise fare.
     

  • Carnival's offering is an 8 night cruise, also departing from Sydney and with 3 nights, 4 days spent in Melbourne. Tickets and transfers are included in this one too- so a suitable dress or suit is all passengers will need to worry about.
