Default Transportation to Seattle Airport

We are going to Alaska in September and need advice on getting back to theSeattle Airport after the crusie. We are arriving the day before the cruise and will have a rental car for the day so geting to the pier will not be a problem. Is it best to use the cruise lines or make your own arrangments for transportation? This will be our first cruise and there will be 4 adults traveling. Any suggestions will help alot.

Hi

We did the Alaska trip two years agp on the Sky.

We arrived in Seattle the day before, staying in an airport hotel. Post cruise we returned by taxi to the same hotel, leaving the following morning.

Taxies were plentiful at the peir. Our porter hailed one for us.

Depends on how much NCL is charging. A taxi casn pick you up right at the pier and take you to Sea Tac for about 30.00 for 4 people.

We just returned from the Star in Alaska. When you get to the terminal, there is a airport express shuttle for $11 per person that was fast and easy. We arrived at the pier in about 20 minutes. The people who tool NCL transfer buses were almost 2 hours reaching the pier, there was no one waiting for them at the baggage claim, and it was an incredible hassle, I would not recommened taking transfers arranged by NCL. On our return we took a taxi for about $30.

I live across the street from the pier and have a couple of suggestions. First of all I don't think that 4 people and luggage will fit in one taxi. If you want to do this on the cheap, the Waterfront Streetcar is directly in front of the pier and takes you to Chinatown. There you transfer to bus #194 to the airport. Total cost $1.25 but only do this if you can handle your own luggage.

We just took the June 12 sailing to Alaska. We used Shuttle Express. You can reserve online and the cost was $29 each way for 4 people. We printed out our reservations and took them with us. Upon arrival at the airport you will have to cross over to the parking garage, take the escalator and check in with the person in a red vest. We waited about 5-10 minutes for a van. Returning we just hailed a Shuttle Express van at the pier. Four other people had called for a van and we picked them up also. If there had not been room in the van, the driver would have had to radio for another one and we would have had to wait. However, they have lots of vans and it would not have been a long wait.
