Our last morning aboard the Maasdam, breakfast in the Pinnacle then off the ship o a Seattle excursion to go up the Space Needle, tour the city and go into the Pile Place Market in Seattle where they throw fish around. I did try to get a picture but was unable to. Seattle is an artsy city with sculptures all over the place, most good, some not so good! Per our guide, when companies build, part of their contact is to showcase a special piece of sculpture on their property. Seattle loves its coffee; it is home to Starbucks and Seattle's Best Coffee and is found on every corner in the city. It is the largest city in Washington State and is known as the Emerald City.
The excursion ended at the airport where we caught the hotel shuttle to the hotel for the evening. We went to dinner at a local casino, on the recommendation of the hotel, no machines only table games. The food was OK, the atmosphere not so good but it was good for people watching! We had a early flight back to Charlotte so off to bed and up for breakfast and the shuttle to the airport in the morning.
