Travelers will undoubtedly have a great time on their Alaskan cruise, but the fun doesn't have to stop once the ship returns to port. Those disembarking in Seattle will have an opportunity to book a number of different shore excursions that will focus on some of the highlights of this wonderfully diverse city.
Those on a cruise based out of Seattle should definitely take advantage of the Space Needle, as this famous structure offers travelers an unbeatable and remarkable view of the city. There's no better way to cap off an amazing vacation than with a trip to the top of this massive 520-foot high structure.
Yet the most memorable attraction in the city might be back down on the ground. Travelers may have to dodge a few flying fish when they visit Pike Place Market, the oldest open-air marketplace on the West Coast. Even those who aren't fans of seafood will find plenty to love about this stop, as it's the perfect place to pick up a unique souvenir to remember the trip.
Travelers who want to visit both of these historic landmarks can package them together, along with a trip back to their hotel or to the airport.
