We show you here all departures and arrivals of passenger ships offering Seattle repositioning cruise deals on “one-way itinerary” voyages with changing the ship’s seasonal destination of operation.
Seattle relocation cruises include deals on ships which arrive to or are leaving from Seattle WA. The list of itinerary and destination changes associated with these deals includes:
- Panama Canal transition cruises on ships departing from Alaska to Florida ports, New Orleans, or to texas (Houston or Galveston) are operated in Fall. The reverse routes are operated in early Spring.

- Transpacific crossings – ASIA and AUSTRALIA (with Hawaii) repositioning cruises from Seattle to Sydney or ports in Japan (Yokohama or Kobe).
Repositioning Cruises to/from Seattle WA
Seattle repositioning cruise deals belong to the special group of Alaskan ships on relocation in Spring and Fall. Most popular are those between Seattle and Vancouver, Canada. They are with the most short itineraries, which also means cheapest overall cruise prices and some of the most cheap per days rates.
As you will see from the lists below, the short “Alaska ships relocation” deals offer visiting of the busiest Alaskan ports of call – Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan, and the regions of Glacier Bay and Tracy Arm. In British Columbia (Canada) you will stop in its capital city Victoria (on the Vancouver Island, about 60 ml / 100 km south of Vancouver BC).
Longer repositioning cruises from Seattle offer transition through Panama Canal. It’s a narrow-window at the end-of-Alaskan-season opportunity to embark on a triple-destination cruise travel vacation. You’ll enjoy the exciting combination of these three most traveled regions – Alaska, the Panama Canal transition itself and the sunny Caribbean. The same goes in the reverse route during Spring – departing from Caribbean US ports (most departures are from Fort Lauderdale and Miami) to Seattle for the new Alaskan season.
All these deals are on one-way itineraries. The Seattle cruise repositioning presents the perfect chance for budget-minded vacationeers to find low-season-cheap bargains. In the group of these deals are the discounted cheap Alaska fly cruise packages with discounted air on both flights. These deals are usually sold by travel agencies, and rarely by the ship’s operator or the cruise company.
