​The Celebrity Solstice arrives on Sunday 13 October marking the start of the 2019-20 cruise season at Station Pier.

She is one of 37 different ships making a record 112 visits to Station Pier from October 2019 to April 2020.

Four ships will homeport at Station Pier for the season – Golden Princess, Carnival Spirit, Queen Elizabeth and Pacific Aria. In all, there will be 43 turnaround visits - 40 by the homeporting ships and three other ships making one turnaround each.

Five first time visitors will call this season – Vasco da Gama, Ruby Princess, Boudicca, Pacific Aria and Explorer Dream.

Over the busy Melbourne Cup period one ship will also berth at Webb Dock West.

And, in a quirk of scheduling, Celebrity Solstice will not only make the first visit of the season but also the last when she calls on 23 April 2020.
