I saw the Polly Woodside, the 19th-century sailing ship, the navigation passage and marina, the Crown Casino, the Westgate Bridge, and stunning views of downtown Melbourne.

The meaning of travel for me is not to punch the scenic spots, not to eat, drink and enjoy relaxation, not to pass by to take photos and post friends but to personally integrate and perceive each travel place through the stories and people I meet on the journey.

The commentary from the captain was fabulous. The cruise passes through very scenic spots and is totally worth it.

The commentary from the captain was fabulous. The cruise passes through very scenic spots and is totally worth it. You have the opportunity to spend some time on the open deck and experience how low some of the bridges can be over your head. You really need to duck!

Thank you Experience Oz

Thank you Experience Oz, you are the best! I booked a Melbourne sightseeing cruise in the last minute, it was very simple and easy to book the cruise. It is very flexible as I can book any ticket anywhere and anytime, So happy that we could make it to the cruise as it was our last day in Melbourne.
