Port of Seattle Wins Cruise Critic Award for Best Homeport 2019

December 12, 2019 Cruise No Comments Email Email

The Port of Seattle won its second Cruise Critic Award, this one for Best North American Homeport 2019.  The cruise business in Seattle continues to grow as a lucrative homeport for voyages to Alaska, deemed by many travellers as the most desired cruise itinerary for all age groups. Cruise Critic, the world’s largest online cruise resource, also named Seattle ‘Cruiser’s Choice’ in their Top 5 Destinations of 2019.

From Cruise Critic:

Best North American Homeport: Seattle

Seattle has proved indispensable as the perfect Pacific Northwest jump-off to the Last Frontier. Passengers enjoy proximity to major attractions like Pike Place Market, along with Port Valet, a luggage transfer program that provides seamless airport ticketing and baggage deliver – free of charge – for domestic flights.

From Port of Seattle:

“We thank Cruise Critic for their award for Best Homeport 2019, this is a huge honour for the Port of Seattle,” said Port of Seattle Commissioner, Ryan Calkins.  “We’ve worked hard each year to welcome cruise passengers to our wonderful city, and to provide as many opportunities to get them to stay a few extra days. With great public transportation options and our own Port Valet Program, we will continue to innovate and offer the best hospitality possible. It is especially gratifying to be recognised for our efforts to make our homeport the most environmentally progressive in the nation.”

“The Port of Seattle is pleased to be recognised once again by Cruise Critic for offering outstanding port services to Alaska cruise guests,” said Ron Peck, Tourism Development Director for the Port.  “We are also pleased to promote stellar pre and post cruise visitor experiences; therefore, expanding the economic contribution of our international travellers to Seattle and all of the state of Washington.”
