I have never known this to happen before, all Station Pier berths are full. Normally the cruise ships arrive and depart on the same day but these are staying on for a couple of nights so that passengers can attend the Melbourne Cup horse race or at least join in with the festivities, atmosphere and fun. It seems as if it was chaos at Station Pier as all three ships arrived within a short time of each other and thousands of passengers left the ships. There was another cruise ship, Pacific Dawn, which also arrived and had to berth at Victoria Dock, not a very nice area for cruise ship passengers.
Spirit of Australia Tasmania ferry at Station Pier, inner east berth, with Carnival Spirit at outer east.
