Cruise Ship Visits

In light of the Coronavirus the P&O Cruises Australia have announced a voluntary 30-day pause to its cruise operations to support the efforts of federal and state governments and their senior health experts as they work to contain the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. For further information please refer to P&O Cruises media release issued Saturday 14 March 2020.

For the month of March 2020 there will be no further Cruise Ship visits to Port Lincoln.

Port Lincoln is a popular destination for cruise ships. The cruise ship season runs from October to April with the number of ships visiting Port Lincoln varying year to year.

With each ship visit there can be up to 3000 passengers and 1000 crew that disembark and visit the city. These large numbers of visitors significantly increase the number of people in the CBD, which is positively managed with the wonderful assistance of our Cruise Ship Volunteers. In previous years Port Lincoln has received accolades as being voted as best port by passengers according to South Australian Tourism Commission market research.

A free shuttle bus service is available for passengers on the day from the terminal into the centre of town and back to the boat, or is a 5 minute walk along our beautiful foreshore.  There is also plenty of things to see and do to enjoy our picturesque city.
