Seattle Wraps up 2018 and 20th Cruise Season

Norwegian Bliss

Wrapping up its 2018 cruise season, the Port of Seattle will host the Grand Princess next week after a strong summer Alaska season. 

The Grand Princess is the last cruise ship of the season, departing from Terminal 91 in Seattle on October 10 on a one-week voyage to Alaska, concluding the 20th cruise season out of Seattle.

This season brought the first of the new megaships to Seattle, the Norwegian Bliss with 4,000 passengers, which debuted in the Alaska market. 

She’s the largest cruise ship on the West Coast, custom-built for Alaska cruising, and recently became the largest passenger vessel to transit the Panama Canal. Next year brings the arrival of the Bliss’s sister ship to Seattle, the Joy, in April of 2019. She will join the Bliss in offering seven-day cruises to Alaska.
