Cruise Healthy Seattle


Safety and well-being come first at the Port of Seattle. And that includes a commitment to keeping our community and partners informed of our work towards a safe cruise season at our two terminals. The Port has actively brought together cruise lines, local health partners, federal agencies, and community groups to prepare for another safe return of cruise ships to Elliott Bay. The port, local health departments and the cruise lines have entered into an agreement outlining health protocols and plans should there a positive a case of COVID-19 identified onboard.  

Safe return of cruise

Last year, the Port of Seattle hosted one of the safest cruise seasons in the world, thanks to partnerships with cruise lines, state and local public health officials, ports in Alaska, and passengers. These measures make up some of the most robust health protections in any travel industry 

Cruise ships and terminals

All major cruise lines homeported at the Port of Seattle are members of Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA).

The Port provides two cruise terminals in Seattle, in partnership with Cruise Terminals of America and the cruise lines. Terminal enhancements deploy an additional layer of health measures with touchless technology, safety barriers, and social distancing.
