P&O Melbourne Cup cruise

Get your bets ready and rally your group together for an unforgettable Melbourne Cup experience. Skip the usual hassles of attending a large event and choose a P&O Melbourne Cup cruise instead. You won’t need to worry about accommodation, transport, or tickets. Plus, the celebrations begin as soon as you hop onboard.

Cruise from Brisbane or Sydney to the most glamorous day of the year and watch the Lexus Melbourne Cup live. You’ll enjoy two nights in Melbourne, one day visiting Flemington Racecourse, and time to explore the rest of the city at your leisure. Soak up all the spectacle, glamour and celebrations at Flemington as you sip on champagne, and cheer on the jockeys as they come around the bend. Then when it’s all over, enjoy the remaining time onboard, partying the nights away and relaxing by day.

Tickets and transfers to Flemington Racecourse are included in your cruise fare. Plus, P&O offers upgrade packages available to purchase. These are in hot demand, so we recommend that you get in early.

If you’re wondering to yourself, ‘What should I do for the Melbourne Cup this year?’, consider booking a P&O cruise and get more out of the Melbourne Cup.
