Our top picks of cruises from Melbourne to Tasmania


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.

Airport to cruise terminal transfers

Shared and private shuttles also operate between Melbourne Airport and the cruise ship terminal. These can be booked online easily at Viator. Prices start at $20 for shared transfers.


Importance of cruise travel insurance

Although Tasmania cruises aren't travelling to foreign ports, you may not be covered on the ship for all medical costs should something go wrong as cruises don't require a Medicare doctor to be on board. And that's just the start of it.

Cruise travel insurance policy can help in other ways that regular travel insurance can't, like compensation should you be confined to your cabin or miss a shore excursion. However, with domestic cruises things do get a bit tricky. We've written a guide on domestic cruise travel insurance and what to look for in a policy so you can find the right cover for your sailing.
