My suggestion is go to the cab stand at SeaTac and ask for a minivan or SUV cab. Fare will be about the same as a regular cab and less expensive than four cruise line transfers. You may have to wait a few minutes for one but they will get it for you.

Take care,
Mike

Sea Tec has a mono rail into town, take it to town, then get a cab to the port about 15 minutes from downtown stop.

UberX is the cheapest personal transportation in Seattle. Just download the ap. Use one of these codes for $20 off your first ride.http://www.retailmenot.com/view/uber.com?c=5754249
There is also a train from Seatac to the port but you have to walk 6 blocks. its only 3.50 per person

I found it very easy and quick to just get a cab, not too long of a ride to the sea port.

It's a 40 minute taxi ride around $55+/- from AirPort to Sea Port (dock).


The Mono Rail was around $5.00+/- per person gets you into town in 38 minutes, then you can catch a taxi to the dock about 18 minutes and cost around $16+/- for a full taxi, Often you can be at the security gate at the port for 15 minutes because of the crowds.


Just a reminder, Security will not allow early entry on the ships as they do in Fort Lauderdale or Miami.
You will just be standing in the check-in area with everybody else, even if your ELITE.

Yes: The mono rail is less expensive. However, if you are cruising with two or three suitcases and carry on it isn't the best way to travel. I'll take the $55 van cab for four people rather than the hassle.

Take care,
Mike
