September 8, 2021

Time sails by when you’re having fun! The Port of Seattle is already halfway through its 2021 cruise season, with more than 40 remaining sailings as of September 1. If you’re one of the tens of thousands of travelers who has a cruise booked this season, chances are you’re looking for a low-stress way to enjoy your adventure and keep the vacation vibes as long as possible.

At SEA we know that your vacation time is better spent on the “want to dos”, not the “must dos.”  We get it and we’re here to help! Use these programs and services to reach peak relaxation and maximize adventure during and after your cruise. Soon you’ll be skipping the line, minimizing stress, and spending more time discovering something new.

1.    Skip the fuss and leave your bags with us

Your vacation doesn’t have to be over when your cruise ship docks in Seattle. Why spend your precious last hours rushing to the airport weighed down by luggage? Wouldn't you rather relax and enjoy a day exploring Seattle luggage-free? With the Port Valet program, a complimentary luggage service, leave your luggage with us. When you get to the airport, your bags will already be there safe and sound. And you can go straight to your gate or spend time on your last vacation meal. 

Seattle is waiting for you. Watch fish fly at the Pike Place Market. Enjoy epic 360-degree views of Seattle from the deck of the Space Needle. Stroll along Elliott Bay with a view of Mt. Rainier and the Olympics. We’ll handle the rest.

2.    Fret not, we’ll save your spot (in the security line)

Don’t waste the last day of your vacation standing in line. Skip the line with SEA Spot Saver, a free program for SEA Airport travelers. You can reserve a time at the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) general screening security checkpoints. RSVP to save your spot up to a day before travel or once you arrive at the airport. Use the extra time exploring all Seattle has to offer or know your time in the security line will be a breeze..

3.    Why wait? Dine at your gate

Order SEA sign and passersby

Your diet doesn't start until tomorrow, so enjoy that last guilt-free meal with no lines. Relax at your gate and use Order SEA, a mobile food ordering service that delivers food from SEA restaurants straight to your gate. Order your fave eats from anywhere in the airport and it will be delivered to your concourse.

4.    In the know before you go
