Station Pier - Review
Station Pier is a historic pier that has played a significant role in Victoria's history in Melbourne. This pier has also been host to thousands of migrants who came to Australia’s shores after the Second World War Due to its historicity and significance, this pier and its unique Gate House are heritage listed. Today, the Station Pier is considered to be Melbourne's premier cruise ship terminal and is also host to the Spirit of Tasmania ferry service from Melbourne to Devonport. What makes this pier a unique one is that it is constructed directly off the beach into Port Phillip Bay unlike many cruise ship terminals that are located within a freight terminal. From here, the visitors can enjoy astounding views of the sea and can walk on its ramp on sunny afternoons.

Station Pier, Melbourne Reviews
beautiful place for sunset. feel leisure and chilling at any restaurant next to the pier beer and food.
The recliners are absolutely dreadful and I wanted to go and sleep in my car instead if they'd let me. However, after another return trip sharing a private 2-person cabin with my partner, it was well worth having a private bathroom, toilet, room, and a safer place to leave belongings. I much enjoyed my time using the ship's facilities. They even have XXXX on tap.
It was a hot day (41°C), so TT Lines pushed back the boarding and sailing for the comfort of the passengers boarding. Very good traffic control, no stress when driving on board. While waiting in the very orderly queue, the traffic wardens came around to pass us cold bottles of water to make the wait the little more comfortable. Checking in was a breeze! Customer service officer had the boarding passes and keycards all ready for us. Clean and spacious cabins. Smooth sailing and a gentle wake up call with ample time to get ready for arrival. Just 1 simple wish... can the pantry stock more fresh food? The selection was quite small.
Great experience. Not really that big a boat actually. Night sailing recommended but it does mean an awfully early wake up. Even though it's quite a big boat if you happen upon rough seas the voyage can be unpleasant. My advice is to take your see sickness pills and get an early night!
would not recommend if you get sea sick
