Where do cruises depart from in Melbourne?

All cruises depart from the Melbourne cruise ship terminal at Station Pier.

The fastest option from Melbourne Airport to the cruise terminal is by taxi. A cheaper alternative would be the Sky Bus to Southern Cross station before a tram or taxi to the cruise terminal. However, a taxi is recommended from the airport or Southern Cross station as trams are not always luggage-friendly.
