Melbourne Cup Cruises

Arrive in style at the race that stops the nation! A Melbourne Cup cruise brings together everything you could want in a horseracing spectacular – style, excitement and fantastic celebrations.

On the first Tuesday in November at precisely 3pm, Australia stops in its tracks to watch the Melbourne Cup. All eyes are on Flemington Racecourse, where the finale of the Spring Racing Carnival unfolds and we watch the best battle it out in the world’s richest two-mile handicap. The atmosphere at Flemington is like no other – and you can be there to experience it.

Get into the Melbourne Cup spirit

As you cruise to Melbourne, embrace cup fever with special Melbourne Cup-themed entertainment, activities, decorations and shopping. Get your feathers at the ready – some ships provide fascinator-making workshops with best-dressed competitions on the deck. Need some last minute accessories? Head to the onboard boutiques for great discounts on handbags and jewellery. Then book an appointment to get your hair and make-up done by professionals.

Of course, if you simply want to relax on the ship before the big event, these ships have everything you could want. Relax on the deck, laze in the pool, enjoy the mouthwatering dining venues, and even indulge in a spa treatment or two. Tickets and transfers to Flemington Racecourse are included in the cruise fare, so the only thing you need to worry about is what to wear!

Pre-race entertainment

Those cruises that arrive in Melbourne on Monday morning give you plenty of time to explore the city, do some last minute shopping in the city’s famous laneways, and take in the pre-race atmosphere at Federation Square. Why not head to a city salon to get your hair done before the race? Alternatively, an early morning arrival on Tuesday gives you time to dress in your best before boarding your VIP transfer to Flemington.

How to celebrate at Flemington

Champagne flows, fascinators loom overhead, and beautifully dressed guests picnic in the carpark. You can only be at Flemington Racecourse on Melbourne Cup Day. Before you stake your territory for the day, take a walk around and explore the racecourse that’s shaped Australian history. Check out the Fashions on the Field parades, but keep your eye out for some of the most outrageous costumes that will never see the catwalk. And of course, be sure to back a winner and have a flutter on the biggest race of the day.
