It’s The Race That Stops The Nation™, and there’s no better way to celebrate the Melbourne Cup Carnival than aboard P&O Cruises’ Melbourne Cup cruise.
Cruise from Brisbane or Sydney to the most glamorous day of the year and watch the Lexus Melbourne Cup live. Enjoy two nights in Melbourne. One day for the cup, visiting the Victoria Racing Club at Flemington Racecourse, and another two days explore the city at your leisure. Discover everything Melbourne has to offer from Queen Victoria Market, the Eureka Skydeck and Federation Square development, with plazas, bars, and restaurants by the Yarra River, just waiting for your arrival.
Relish in the spectacle and the celebrations. Don, your finest frock for Flemington, sip on champagne, and of course, 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, so you won't need to worry about anything. 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, where will I be watching the Melbourne Cup this year? Consider booking a P&O Main Event Cruise for an easy, relaxing and fantastic way to experience the Melbourne Cup.
