Alaska Cruises Helps Seattle Economy
Last week the Norwegian Sun arrival kicked off the summer cruise season out of Seattle. The Port of Seattle projects over 1.1 million cruise passengers will pass through the port this year. Last year was a record-breaking year as Seattle has the second largest cruise port on the West Coast. Alaska is the largest destination for cruise ship and passengers wanting to see nature and wildlife.
Like most embarkation ports, cruise passengers bring an influx of tourism money into the city of Seattle. Last year, 40 million visitors came to the city which continues to grow for the past eight years.
