10 Night Cruise | Seattle, Roundtrip

Grand Puget Sound

Puget Sound has become one of America’s most popular cruising destinations, with its beautiful mountains, smooth waters, and abundant wildlife. This extra long itinerary offers you the time to take in more of the region, and enjoy amazing sights, sounds, smells and tastes! In La Conner, enjoy a smoked salmon tasting, featuring my favorite food on this planet: smoked salmon chowder! Head up to the beautiful vistas in Olympic National Park in spring to see the mountain meadows covered in wildflowers. As you cruise the Sound, watch for whales, seals and eagles.
