Tips for Alaska Cruise
Thread DetailsLast Edited by wolverine88 June 4, 2016 at 10:41 AM
Going to SEA end of June for a one week Alaska cruise. Already got air tickets and cruise reserved.
Looking for some tips in
1. tips to get rental car in decent value?
We have 5 person, each with a carry on luggage.
Plan to rent a full size car (big enough?) when get there, will stay in SEA for 2 days for sightseeing. Any good suggestion to rent a car? Checking at priceline.com now and its average price is $150. Any place to get some sort of codes?
Then plan to drop off the car at airport on the cruise date, either call a cab, or book cruise line bus (5 x $35), or just uber from airport to pier 66. Which one is the best option?
2. tips to get a good value hotel for 2 nights. I guess I need 2 room. Or just airbnb it? Any recommendation?
3. Any suggestion for sightseeing (just killing time in SEA) for 2 days? Have 2 teen boys and a senior lady. Thinking about getting a pass like 5 spots (Needle, Aquarium, Harbor Tour, Museum or Zoo, Science Center or Garden) in SEA for $55 - $75 each at http://www.citypass.co
4. I know the short excursion is a little bit expensive, any recommendation for must-see-scene, like whales or mountain train in deep woods?
Many thanks here, esp. any Seattle local or native here to chime in?
