Arrival and departure times of ships up to seven days from now are available on the Shipping Movements page (click on cruise ships). Information on current cruise ship visits are also available on the Cruise Line on 9430 3335 a few days before the ship visits.
All cruise ships berth at the Fremantle Passenger Terminal or at D Berth on Victoria Quay.
Please note that during most cruise ship visits the Fremantle Passenger Terminal is not open to the public due to requests from cruise lines related to their security requirements and vessel operations. The Cruise Line (9430 3335) will advise if the Passenger Terminal is open or closed prior to each cruise vessel visit. The car park will be available for short-term parking and picking up and dropping off of passengers. Please note there is no overnight parking at the Fremantle Passenger Terminal. For more information for cruise passengers, see here.
The best places to see ships entering or leaving the harbour are on the western end of Victoria Quay (at the Ferry Terminal, between A and B Sheds, or near the Maritime Museum) or on South or North moles. (See the Fremantle map.)
The Shipping Movements arrival time is for when the pilot will be on board in Gage Roads. The ship will berth about 30–60 minutes after that. Ships take up to 4–5 hours to disembark passengers, although smaller ships take 1–2 hours.
The 'Operation' section refers to whether there is a passenger exchange or whether passengers are staying with the ship. (Transit - the same passengers who arrived with the ship leave with the ship; turnaround - passengers disembark the ship and leave and new passengers are checked in and board the vessel; transit/turnaround is a combination.)
