Royal Caribbean's Explorer of the Seas arrived in Seattle on Monday, which makes it the largest cruise ship on the West Coast.

Royal Caribbean Blog reader Tom and Diane Trudnowski took photos of the ship, which is deployed to Seattle to offer her inaugural Alaska cruise season.

Explorer of the Seas will be unmatched in onboard amenities when the ship debuts in Alaskan waters. Guests on the ship’s seven-night round-trip itineraries from Seattle, Wash., will sail up Tracy Arm Fjords for an incomparable view of Sawyer Glacier. In September, the ship will sail three Pacific Coastal cruises, seven nights in duration, which feature an overnight in San Francisco, Calif.

Explorer of the Seas, the 15-deck, 1,557-stateroom ship which accommodates 3,840 guests was revitalized in 2015 to bring signature Royal Caribbean innovations like the FlowRider surf simulator, virtual balconies for interior staterooms and a variety of new dining experiences onboard.
