Port of Seattle (see video below) Welcomes Royal Celebrity Cruise Ships – Today, Friday May 24, 2019, we were at the Port of Seattle when two cruise ships docked,  Celebrity Cruises ship Celebrity Solstice and Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines ship Oasis of the Seas and were both docked at  Smith Cove Cruise Terminal, otherwise known as Pier 91 .

Though it was a cloudy, drizzling rain day, it was a great day for the Port of Seattle, with two huge cruise ships calling at Seattle on the way to Alaska.
