Cruises from Seattle
View all Alaska cruises from Seattle
Seattle is known as the Emerald City, in recognition of its lush evergreens and plentiful public green spaces that include an old growth forest, a converted military base, and parks built over freeways. Pristine mountain ranges rim the east, while hundreds of islands dot the Sound to the north and west. More than 200 cruises set sail from Seattle to Alaska and the Pacific Northwest each summer.
All the buzz about Seattle's love affair with coffee is real. Starbucks was born here (an outpost at Pike Place Market retains the first store's original look) and the city brims with Starbuck outlets along with dozens of independent coffeehouses with steadfast followers. You can spend a few days in Seattle before or after your Alaska cruise exploring the Pike Place Market, one of the oldest continuously operating farmers' markets in the United States. Visit Seattle’s iconic space needle for an incomparable view of the city, visit the Boeing factory and learn what goes into making the ubiquitous jetliners and spend time at the Seattle waterfront. There is so much to do - just don’t forget to board your cruise!
