Just an update... We booked our flight leaving Phoenix at 7:15a arriving in Seattle at 10:15a Friday before our cruise.

After a little research, I found a beautiful hotel that is .01 miles from the lightrail station and booked it. We will be able to take the lightrail from the airport straight to our hotel for around $2.75 each. I called the Hotel and they said if our room is ready we can check in early and if not we can leave our luggage with them until it is ready. We're staying walking distance from Pike Place Market, the Space Needle, and downtown which will make it easy to see Seattle before we leave Saturday on our cruise.

The Hotel (Mayflower Park btw) offered a pre-cruise package that included a hot breakfast and our shuttle to the cruise pier, so we did that. We are so excited!

After the cruise we still haven't decided how we'll get from the pier to the airport, but our flight doesn't leave until 4:55pm to we could take a shuttle/cab back to downtown for lunch before heading to the airport via lightrail. I am thinking I should have booked an earlier flight back home, but I didn't want to be rushed and don't think it is worth changing to an earlier flight now.

Any ideas on what we could do from debarkation until we have to be at the airport? We'll have all our luggage, so that will be a little bit of a pain.

Thanks again for all the help!!
