On day 5 of your tour board Holland America’s MS Westerdam for the start of your seven-night, full-board cruise along Alaska’s coast.
On this intriguing and visually stunning journey you’ll contrast the vibrant energy of Seattle, the charms of Portland, the gentility of Victoria and the majestic grandeur of the Alaskan coast.
Your travel is marked by modern and ancient highlights, from the contemporary skyline of Seattle to the ageless glaciers of Alaska, which you will discover on a seven-night cruise.
See the sights at a laid-back pace. On these tours you'll rarely spend more than three or four hours travelling a day and there will usually be a few days for you to simply stay put and relax. Typically, any walking during the excursions will be at a leisurely pace and will amount to just a few hours of the course of the day.
With lakes, mountains and forests all around, Seattle is known as the Emerald City. No visit to the city is complete without a trip to the top of the Space Needle.
This landmark is 605 feet tall, yet your lift will only take 43 seconds to whisk you up the equivalent of 60 floors to reach the observation platform.
You may also wish to join an optional Seattle underground tour.
