Hawaii from Seattle?

Inspired by a blog post the other day, I checked out RCI Vancouver to Hawaii. I know the ship is required to have at least one foreign port on its itinerary, but do we? On Ovation Of The Seas, it starts in Vancouver, but its next port is Seattle. Is it possible to embark in Seattle

You cannot embark in Seattle and end in Hawaii that is a violation of the PVSA. 

They move the ship to Vancouver exactly for this reason.  Since the ship embarks in a foreign country (Canada) it can stop in Seattle and end in Hawaii.

It's easy to get from Seattle to Vancouver so I wouldn't let the Canadian embarkation change your mind.

If you have time you can take the Amtrak Cascades train to Vancouver. Just beware that if it has been raining there's a good chance of a mudslide on the tracks. Amtrak will shutdown service for 2 days to be sure the hillside has stabilized. 

Train is from Seattle, yes? Looking to do something like this when we come to Seattle before the cruise.

We did Vancouver to Seattle after our cruise to fly home out of Seattle on Amtrak.  Really enjoyed the train ride!  Goes along the coast and we saw great scenery..eagles flying along side the train, etc.  Very relaxing way to go and super easy to navigate.

Yes, it goes from the King street station all the way to Vancouver B.C.

Since you like planes there's the Boeing Tour in Everett, it's where the 777, 767, KC 46 Tanker, 747 and 787 are built. It's a history of Boeing and a tour of the factory.

For an aerial view there's  Kenmore Air. It's a Beaver float plane that flys from Vancouver B.C downtown to Lake Union.
