Cruise Ship to Seward Alaska

Cruise Ship to Seward Alaska

Approximately 50 cruise ships will use Seward as a embark/debarkation location during the summer season. Whitter is the other cruise ship embark/debarkation location. Port-of-Calls are quite rare, so you never have to worry about cruise ship crowds. Those cruise ships that do arrive in Seward provide transportation to Anchorage to their passengers, via private buses, or private rail cars on the Alaska Railroad. If you are an independent traveler it is often easiest to take the transportation provided by the cruise company, then rent a car in Anchorage and return to Seward.


We will provide you with car rental discount codes when you make your lodging reservation with us. Alternatively, for those embarking/debarking in Seward, you may consider renting a vehicle from the local Hertz office (phone 907-224-4378). Their office is very close to the dock. You may find that the one-way drop off fee is less than the transportation to Anchorage provided by the cruise ship company. Or you can turn the car back in here and avoid the penalty fee, then take some form of ground transportation (cruise ship’s or otherwise) to Anchorage.

Most cruise ship visitors that arrive in Alaska, leave their debarkation point (Seward or Whittier) by bus or train, and immediately fly home. Independent travelers will often add some extra time to their travels to be able to experience the beauty and easily accessible wildlife of Seward. Our cabins are a perfect place to stay, and are most easily reached with a rental car, which can be procured in Seward, Anchorage or Fairbanks. We can help you figure out the ground transportation! Be sure to give yourself time to experience some heavenly relaxation in our very special cabins, with spectacular wildlife and scenery surrounding them, just south of Seward, Alaska, on the shores of Resurrection Bay, on the Kenai Peninsula.
