Cruise Terminal - Circular Quay

We are located across the road from the Overseas Passenger Terminal where most of the cruise ships arrive and depart in Sydney. A short 5 minute walk from our Hotel to your Cruise means we are perfectly positioned to ensure you board relaxed and on time. There are two cruise ship terminals in Sydney, the other one is White Bay Cruise Terminal, which is 20 minutes drive by car or taxi.

The Russell Boutique Hotel can store your luggage if you disembark early or embark late in the day, just speak to reception. We may also be able to arrange early check-in for those guests who disembark early in the morning, just ask for availability! Our location and flexibility make us a great pre-cruise and post-cruise accommodation option.

A variety of cruise ships that leave the Sydney terminal in The Rocks include:


Carnival Legend Pacific Aria
Carnival Spirit Pacific Eden
Celebrity Millennium Pacific Jewel
Celebrity Solstice Pacific Pearl
Costa Luminosa Queen Elizabeth
Crystal Serenity Queen Victoria
Dawn Princess Radiance of the Seas
Diamond Princess Sea Princess
Golden Princess Silver Whisper
Noordam Volendam
Voyager of the Seas
