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.
Seattle is one of those really unique cities that offers something for everyone. For the culture fans, head to the Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum, and the Museum of Pop Culture before visiting the Seattle Art Museum. If aviation is a passion of yours, a visit to the Future of Flight Aviation Center & Boeing Tour is a must in Seattle. On this amazing tour, you can visit the working Boeing factory to witness 747s and Dreamliner’s in the making! Of course, other popular attractions include the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, the Pacific Science Center and so much more. Seattle also has fantastic dining options throughout, as well as a thriving sports, theater and nightlight scene.
Alaska is a truly special part of the world. With untamed wilderness and vivid breath-taking views, each port of call is like a dream. After a couple of days exploring Seattle, step on board an amazing cruise and discover incredible ports of call including Juneau, Skagway, Hubbard Glacier and so much more. Try your hand at white water rafting, go bear watching, explore quaint towns or why not enjoy a helicopter ride over breath-taking glaciers. Each port of call offers an immersive experience that will create memories to last a lifetime.
While many major cruise lines sail from Seattle, some of our favorite ships include Norwegian Bliss, Royal Caribbean’s Explorer of the Seas, Celebrity Solstice and Ruby Princess. These incredible ships offer different experiences on board meaning there is a ship to suit every type of cruiser. Whether you dream of an intimate cruise experience, or perhaps a lively ship with exciting features, there is a ship for you.
