Excursion Description

Get an introduction to the Emerald City’s highlights and visit two of its most famous attractions, the Space Needle and Pike Place Market. Begin with a drive through Seattle’s birthplace, historic Pioneer Square, originally settled in 1852 and continue on to the International District, where aromas from local restaurants fill the air.

Pass by the Downtown Shopping District and arrive at the Space Needle, the symbol of the 1962 World’s Fair. You’ll soar 520 feet to the “O” Deck for an amazing 360 bird’s eye view of the city, Puget Sound, Mt. Rainier, and the Cascade Mountains. Then, reboard your motor coach for a quick jaunt to the Pike Place Market, the West Coast’s oldest and largest open air Farmer’s Market. Here, you’ll have a little over an hour to explore the wares of hundreds of local farmers and artisans. Make sure to check out the Market’s most recognizable vendor, the “Flying Fish” stall, before departing to the airport.

And if your shore excursion experience was less than perfect - well, that's perfectly alright too - we'd like you to share your experience here too. The more reviews that are left, the better a resource this is for everybody.

How to leave a great review

All you need to do is share your honest opinions. (Just make sure it doesn't include personally-identifying information or pricing information.) Try to remember as many details as you can about your experience - the more you can add to it, the better. We'll also ask you to score the excursion based on Value, Convenience... and perhaps most importantly, Fun.

Why reviews are important

Reviews help cruisers just like you make more informed decisions when planning ways to spend their time ashore. They also help Carnival understand which shore excursion operators are providing our guests with fun experiences that meet their expectations, so that we can constantly improve our shore excursion lineup across all ports of call that Carnival visits.
