The best way to explore and discover Alaska is on a cruise holiday, and the city that compliments Alaskan cruises best is Seattle. Cultural, exciting and packed with experiences to enjoy, Seattle is an incredible city break destination. With two cruise ports in the city, Seattle provides an abundance of choice when it comes to cruising to Alaska. In this blog post, we’re discussing 5 reasons why a Seattle and Alaska Fly/Cruise holiday is the ultimate holiday!
Seattle is a gateway to the great outdoors. But, before you venture further to explore, discover the city’s thriving districts including Downtown, the Waterfront, Capitol Hill and Pioneer Square. Sample local restaurants, explore museums and attractions or shop ‘til you drop throughout the city. Then, embark on a cruise like no other where the city skyline will fade into the backdrop and the wilderness awaits.
