Seattle is an experience, not just a destination

Seattle offers the best of both urban and outdoor experiences, providing the perfect point of departure for your next cruise. Enjoy touring, shopping, lively cuisine, microbrews, fine Northwest wines and, of course, Seattle’s famous coffee.
Many of the city’s top visitor attractions are within blocks of the waterfront, including the Space Needle, Chihuly Garden and Glass, historic Pioneer Square, Pike Place Market and the Seattle Aquarium. Visit the city’s retail core—this compact city makes exploring downtown easy. And just across Lake Washington, indulge your shopping senses even more at the upscale Bellevue Collection and The Bravern.​
If it’s the outdoors you crave, consider a day trip. Three national parks—Mt. Rainier, North Cascades and Olympic—are an easy, two-hour drive from the city center. Discover the region’s rugged coastal beaches, dense rain forests and spectacular alpine peaks.
