Seattle, Washington

Seattle is a young city with a rich history. Settlers first landed at Alki Point in 1851 and named the area after Sealth, the Suquamish Indian chief who befriended them. Rebuilt after the Great Fire of 1889, "The Emerald City" has a legacy of vision and strength. Seattle has hosted two World's Fairs (1909 and 1962) and is the birthplace of two modern marvels, Boeing and Microsoft.

Known for its rainy climate, Seattle actually averages less annual rainfall than many East Coast cities. The mild weather, spectacular natural surroundings and rich cultural diversity attract visitors from around the world.

Seattle tours are available to passengers with afternoon flights or an overnight stay in Seattle after their cruise.

Port Details

Hidden away at the head of the fjord called Puget Sound and almost completely surrounded by water, the Emerald City boasts some of the country's most magnificent scenery. Named after the Native American Chief Noah Sealth, Seattle was originally no more than a village of trappers and loggers. Slickers and umbrellas are appropriate in Seattle at all times of year. With 160 days of rainfall annually, the better part of it between October and April, it's one of the dampest cities in the country.
