Make the most of your vacation with a shore and land excursion that appeals to your interests. Knowledgeable, professional guides lead all excursions and offer special insights into the culture, history, wildlife, and geology of each destination. Discover first-hand how islanders went about the business of growing, harvesting and refining sugar in 18th century Barbados. Take an invigorating mush across a snow-covered glacier aboard an Alaskan dogsled. Or stroll through the maze of tiny streets in Mykonos, the birthplace of Apollo.
Enjoy some of the best evening views of Seattle! At the Space Needle soar 520 feet to the "O" Deck for an amazing 360-degree view of the city, Puget Sound, Mt. Rainier, & the Cascade Mountains. Re-board your motor coach for a drive to West Seattle with its boardwalk and beach. The view of the Seattle skyline from here is spectacular! Afterwards you will pass by the Downtown Shopping District & drive through historic Pioneer Square before returning to your ship.
Past and present exist side by side in Seattle. On this comprehensive tour you will see it all, from the modern Fifth Avenue to historic Pioneer Square and the International District. Independently explore the Pike Place Market and Space needle. After departing the Space Needle, board a sightseeing vessel for a water-side view of the area. Pass multi-million dollar yachts, unique floating homes, Seattle's own Fisherman's Terminal, and the Ballard Locks, where you'll ride in style in this "water elevator." During your narrated cruise, the Seattle skyline, Olympic Mountains and the islands of Puget Sound are revealed. Lunch is not included on this tour.
