Best of Seattle Excursions
If you have time before or after your cruise and want to spend more time in Seattle, Norwegian has excursions that can keep you busy on your family vacation. You can take two exciting jaunts right in the city, both of which end at the airport, making it an easy bonus to add to the end of your cruise.
The first excursion is the Best of Seattle tour, which allows you to visit Seattle's most notable attractions. This includes visiting the Space Needle, where you can get an overhead view of Seattle. You can check out Pike Place Market, which is the oldest farmers market on the West Coast.
The second tour of Seattle that Norwegian offers as an excursion is the Best of Seattle With Observatory and Airport Transfers tour. This journey takes you to the same locations as the first tour but adds the exhilarating perk of ascending to the Sky View Observatory on the Columbia Center's 73rd floor. Here, you can enjoy 360-degree views of the city and take in its splendor from above. There's no better way to see the beauty all around.
Port of Seattle Highlights
While waiting to board your cruise, you can enjoy the comfort of the Port of Seattle. All cruises depart from this port, running on Pacific Standard Time. If you're interested in visiting the famous Pike Place Market or Pioneer Square nearby, you can book an excursion and get taken directly to your destination. Buses, taxis, bicycles, and ferries are also available if you want to get around on your own.
These are just a few of the most riveting options for cruises in 2024. As you plan, remember to subscribe to Norwegian's emails to stay informed about the latest cruise deals and special offers sent directly to your inbox.
