Cab is your best bet, in my opinion, unless ship transfers are priced right.

Last year we took a tram (bus) to our downtown Hotel. as we were in town a day early.
The Pikes Place open air market is near the ship terminal and a great place to visit.

I don't know if you are going to the pier from the airport (then the taxi is $25.00) or a hotel. If you are getting there a day or two early, as we are, and staying at a hotel closer to downtown then the taxi should only cost $6 to $7 plus tip. We stayed at the Hampton Inn out by the Seattle Tower last year and that is all the taxi cost. A very good seafood restaurant is right next door plus you can catch the local shuttle/tram down to the shops along the water front for very little money. There is so much to do and see in Seattle, if you have the time do go to Pikes Market as a previous message recommended.

For transportation from SeaTac to the Cruise Ship terminal try the van service Shuttle Express. You can contact them via their Web site. I think they are much less expensive than a cab for an individual. For 2 or more people a cab may be a better deal. The true cheap way to get downtown is either Metro Transit or Sound Transit.

The Edgewater hotel is right by the terminal, so they would certainly be able to take you there.

The Seattle Marriott Waterfront should be across the street. I should have looked when I was down there yesterday, but I was too busy looking at the NCL Sun. Note that there are several Marriotts around Seattle.

There are plenty of things to do in Seattle. You can go to Pike Place market to shop and look around. Westlake Center and the whole shopping district is a short cab or bus ride away. The Pacific Science center has science type exhibits, and an Imax theater. There is another Imax theater somewhere on the waterfront too. You could ride the waterfront trolley to Pioneer Square. Near Pioneer Square is the football and baseball stadiums. There are numerous art galleries, and other old town type shops.
