Seattle Cruise Port Tours

A city with many identities – from coffee to technology to nature to seafood – Seattle is a great place to start or end a cruise. Shore excursions that go outside the city can fill all kinds of desires; take a wine-tasting tour, explore Bainbridge Island or visit Olympic National Park.

If you’re in a more urban mood, get to know the city itself at top attractions like Pike Place Market and the Space Needle, as well as one of its many walkable neighborhoods like Lower Queen Anne.

How to Get to Seattle
You’ll be docked at either the Bell Street Pier Cruise Terminal at Pier 66 or the Smith Cove Cruise Terminal at Pier 91. If you’re at Bell Street, you’re only a 10- to 20-minute walk from Pike Place Market and downtown Seattle. Pier 91, however, is 2.5 miles (4 km) north of the Bell Street terminal and requires a cab to get downtown.

One Day in Seattle

Start your day in port in Pioneer Square, a historic neighborhood on the southern edge of downtown where the city was settled in the 1850s. Browse the art galleries and bookstores, and then walk less than a mile north on 1st Avenue to Pike Place Market.

After snapping the requisite picture of the market’s iconic red sign, head inside to catch a glimpse of the fish-counter employees throwing salmon back and forth. Then go deeper into the market, getting lost in the maze of flower stands, food stalls and merchants selling jewelry, art and souvenirs.

Grab some lunch at the market before walking over to the Westlake Center on 5th Avenue to catch the monorail to Seattle Center. The park and entertainment center, built for the 1962 World’s Fair, is home to the Space Needle. Head up the 605-foot-tall (185-meter) tower for amazing views of the city, Puget Sound and Mt Rainier.

Port Information

The currency is the US dollar; major credit cards are widely accepted, and there are ATMs throughout the city. Luggage storage is available at the cruise terminal; store your bags if your cruise ends in Seattle and you want to see the city before going to the airport. Rental car services are also available.
