An Update on Operations at Sydney's White Bay Cruise Terminal 

An important change is about to happen in relation to cruise ship operations in Sydney Harbour.

On Monday, April 15, P&O Cruises' Pacific Pearl becomes the first cruise ship to berth at Sydney Ports Corporation’s cruise terminal at White Bay.

This follows the New South Wales Government's decision to relocate cruise ship operations west of the Sydney Harbour Bridge from the current location at wharf five Barangaroo.

If you are meeting passengers returning on Pacific Pearl cruise P312 on April 15, please be aware she will be arriving at the new White Bay terminal.

If you’re sailing on Pacific Pearl’s P313 'Quick Getaway' cruise, please note check-in at White Bay will be staggered according to deck and cabin numbers.

To avoid congestion and inconvenience, please follow your scheduled boarding time.

Here is a point-by- point guide to the new cruise terminal:

· Access is via taxi, private vehicle or P&O Cruises’ transfers to and from Sydney Airport
· Short term parking is available but long-term parking is not permitted
· The terminal is 6km from the CBD (Circular Quay) and 17km from Sydney Airport
· The terminal is wheelchair accessible
· A taxi rank is located near the terminal
· Other than taxis, public transport is not available direct to the terminal

P&O Cruises is working with Sydney Ports Corporation to make the transition to the White Bay Cruise Terminal as smooth as possible for our passengers.

If your cruise is scheduled to depart from White Bay on or after April 15, we recommend you take a little time to familiarise yourself with the location of the new terminal and the best way for you to access it.
