    Assuming that you are going to the Muroran Terminal (I had a tough time finding information on the cruise ship terminal), you are looking at a nearly 2 hour train ride. You should be able to find buses that head out and return from Sapporo or some areas nearby. I would be surprised if there wasn't. Wish I could help more.

    I am not sure if it is the most economical, but I found Arai Travel company of Mito-city,Ibaraki-ken, provides a service you are looking for.

    The price is around 15 thousands yen, the tour totally takes about 3 days on which travel to Sapporo and some other areas is covered. A cruise ship departs from Ooarai port located in Ibaraki-ken, and arrives at Tomakomai port.

    But I guess the company provides only in Japanese...

    For further information, please check the following website (only in Japanese).
