Question #2

What is a must see in your lovely town?  If you can take visitors to one thing and only one thing, what would it be?

Well this won't really come as a surprise, but it's the Space Needle. I have taken many family members and friends here when they visit, there is so much to do around the Space Needle as well, you have EMP (Experience Music Project), and Pike Place Market is a quick drive over. Then there is Belltown, Seattle Art Museum, Chihuly Garden and Glass...Seattle Aquarium...The Great wheel... a quick ferry to Bainbridge Island...and of course the majestic Mt. Rainier but that's a few hour drive but well worth it. You can even consider a short Puget Sound Argosy cruise or head over to Alki beach for some amazing beautiful views of Seattle. Kerry Park is also nice for a view of the Emerald City. If you google any of these you'll see what I am talking about. Bottom line is there is nothin short of amazing here in Seattle, you will enjoy your time!

This is my second Alaska cruise-the first was 10 years ago and I still remember the train in Skagway as the highlight of the trip.   We are planning to go to the chihully gardens in Seattle.  Not sure what else.   I am a shopper so may not be able to resist the original Nordstrom 😄

Our first time to Skagway we did the White pass scenic railway as well, went waay up like a 4-5 hour trip and it was simply amazing. Chihuly Gardens is nice! I made a comment on my previous post above with some other things to do here... love them all.

Thank you John!!!  Love all your places to see and do.  We are coming back to your beautiful city in May 2022 for our second Alaska cruise!  My daughter will be with us and she too is a shopper, she'll love the original Nordstrom.

 

Question # 3

What is Seattle know for food/drink wise?  

Nice!! Are you guys going on a different cruise line/ship in May 2022?

Seattle is well known for...coffee (Starbucks and Seattle's best) but you probably already knew that 😄 Food wise... I am not a huge foodie but there are definitely unique restaurants...seafood is big here even though I don't eat it... I recommend Salty's on Alki (I'd go there if I ate fish). https://www.saltys.com/seattle/

That's Seattle in the background. Lots of great options around here...

Canlis is also good but go with an appetite...these are all fine dining just FYI https://canlis.com/

I would even recommend a dinner cruise if you really want to explore the area... my wife and I did this for our anniversary a few years back, although not sure how different it is now with Covid. https://www.waterwayscruises.com/departure-ports/waterwayshomeport/ 

Maybe a warmup to dinner on the bigger cruise ship? 🙂

John we are going on the Ovation again for the May 5th 2022  8 day sailing.  A bit different Itinerary and time of year.

 

If you can believe it, my husband and I do not like coffee, never have.  My husband loves seafood so he'll enjoy your recommendations.  I'm more of a Italian/ Mexican/ Cuban/ Greek eater, basically everything but seafood, hahaha

 

Question #4

Why do you like going on the Ovation vs a smaller ship, are you particular about the ship or you don't care as long as it takes you to Alaska?
