How to work with cruise guide
Tourism Tasmania has produced a guide for Tasmanian tourism and retail businesses looking to offer product to the cruise shipping market.
The guide provides information on how to deliver shore experiences to passengers, who to work with, and how the cruise distribution system works.
The guide also provides information on different cruise lines and their passenger demographics as well as key contacts and useful links.
2023 – 2024 Season Briefing
The Pacific Adventure arrives in Hobart on the 20th of September to mark the beginning of the 2023-2024 Cruise Season.
This summer will see around 85 ship arrivals in Hobart and 25 visiting Port Arthur. We want to make sure these guests see the very best that southern Tasmania has to offer and have a fantastic visitor experience.
The September briefing outlined the scope and logistics of the season, as well as introduced the many opportunities to work with and access the cruise sector in Tasmania.
DST Tourism Cruise Workshop – June 2022
We partnered with the Australian Cruise Association (ACA) to deliver a workshop to help prepare for the restart of cruising in Tasmania in 2022.
After a long pause on Cruise in Australia, cruising has restarted on the mainland and we are preparing for the 2022/2023 cruise season to restart around November this year in Tasmania.
With over 10 million passengers having cruised in 82 overseas countries since August of 2020, Cruising is certainly back. By the end of December this year, 95% of cruise line fleets will be back in service.
This workshop focussed on assisting tourism businesses to better understand how they can work with cruise lines visiting Southern Tasmania.
