Melbourne is becoming an increasingly popular port of call for some of the world's most prestigious cruise liners. A record 57 cruise ships visited the pier in 2008/2009 cruise season and combined with increased patronage on the Spirit of Tasmania sailings, ensures an active precinct at Beacon Cove. Station Pier has two terminal buildings that provide for Spirt of Tasmania ferry services, and for visiting cruise ships, Navy or tall ships. The increasing interest of Melbourne as a cruise ship destination is likely to result in larger ships visiting Station Pier.

  1. We're planning on a cruise soon - would love to take one all the way down under but bet that would be a L-O-N-G journey from the east coast of the U.S.!
    Thanks for linking up at and please have a wonderful Christmas!

  2. Nice contrast of blue and white.

  3. Hyvää Joulua - Kuvakasta Vuotta 2016...

  4. Cruising is absolutely my favourite way of travelling around. Even going on a very short ride, eg one way on the Spirit of Tasmania to Devonport, was fantastic. Your photo looks sublime - I want to ring a travel agent immediately!!!

  5. Those ships are majestic!
    Quite a few to see in the Oslo fiord :)

  6. Love the dazzling white of the ship in contrast with the blue of the water.
