Carnival’s Aussie cruise hits the trifecta

For patriotic adults, the Melbourne Cup is one of the most important days of the year. The same goes for kids and Halloween – it may not be an Australian tradition, but mention candy and the little ones go bonkers!

Thanks to family friendly cruise line Carnival, you can all enjoy the best things in life this year.

Departing Sydney on October 30, Carnival Spirit will embark on an eight-night cruise, complete with a Halloween theme night and the opportunity to disembark in Melbourne on November 2 for the race that stops a nation. But it doesn’t end there! Ladies, don’t just pack one jaw-dropping outfit – you can also head to Crown Oaks Day in Flemington on November 5.

This will all be made possible thanks to the Spirit docking in Melbourne for four days. Come to think of it, that’s enough time for a spot of shopping, too!
