Weekend Getaways from Seattle
How to reach: Most cruise lines for the Alaskan cruise start from Seattle or Vancouver. You can fly from India to Seattle or Vancouver by various airlines including Lufthansa, KLM, Jet, Emirates, Air Canada, China Southern, Asiana, etc. Since Alaska is one of the 50 states of America, you will need to get the US visa to go to Alaska. However, since the cruise includes Victoria as well, you will also need to get the Canadian visa issued before coming.Trip duration: You will need a total of eight days for the cruise. You could extend it up to 10 days, if you want to spend a few days sightseeing around Seattle/Vancouver before or after the cruise.The cruise is offered by a number of different cruise liners, each competing to outdo each other. I went by the Norwegian Jewel and it proved to be a great choice.So here are diary entries from my Alaskan voyage:

Pike Place Market
Some days you want to buy paintings, fresh flowers, fish, and pajamas and you want it all from the same place. Pike Place should be the first stop on every Seattle itinerary. One of America’s oldest Farmer’s markets, Pike Place started with a few stalls in 1907 and has since grown to become a Seattle landmark. Swarming with shoppers, the bustling market is home to countless galleries, shops and cafes. No trip to Seattle is complete without experiencing Pike Place. San Francisco, California does not have a venue like this!
Chihuly Garden and Glass
Located in the heart of Seattle, Chihuly Garden and Glass provides a look at the inspiration and influences that inform the career of artist Dale Chihuly.
