Carnival Melbourne Cup Cruise 2019

Each year Carnival announces a great line-up of racing personalities to join you onboard your cruise to Melbourne. For the 2019 Cup, a selection of personalities will be confirmed to appear onboard your cruise ship closer to the race date. This year, Carnival have announced that the Carnival Spirit cruise ship will be making the trip from Sydney down to Melbourne for the big day. Not only does your Carnival cruise ticket include transfers and entry to the Melbourne Cup, but you also receive entry to the The Oaks race as well. This is great value!
