My wife and I are taking an Alaska Cruise out of Seattle but need a place to leave our motorhome, after looking for parking near the pier none of them seem to have places for RV's.

Try KOA in Kent. They might have a storage lot. You can take the bus to Seattle very easy from KOA.
My new DRW and camper on the truck the first time.

Hi James Going on a cruise from May 18-25. Do you have availability for a 37 foot rv?

Hi James. We are going on a cruise May 18-25. How much can we park in your driveway for? How far are you from the port? Are there trains or buses?

Lake Pleasant RV Park in Bothell has space to store your RV during a cruise. Call them.

JeffHall, not sure if you noticed but this topic is 11 years old, and James hasn't been on here in a year.

when I was in Ketchikan, the buses were wanting to fill the seats and the prices came down and down and down, when they got to the last ten seats the prices really dropped. that is when we got on board and saw the town.

Here's a tip for taking a cruise out of Seattle unrelated to your question; taxis are cheaper and much more convenient than any of the shuttle services that go to the cruise terminal. We stayed at a hotel downtown and they wanted $15 each for us to take the shuttle the next day. I figured we would just take a cab. We came down the next morning and watched as they packed people in like sardines into the hotel shuttle bus. We grabbed one of the cabs that was lined up and were at the cruise ship probably before the hotel shuttle was even loaded and it was a $10 ride and I gave the guy a $5 tip. Saved $15.

When we got back off the ship we also took a cab all the way back to the airport from the cruise terminal and it was still cheaper than if we had taken the cruise ship bus (that they try and get you to pay for way in advance) and it was much nicer to get dropped right at our airline versus the bus terminal.

And while I'm on to tips, here's another one for your cruise. We did the inside passage cruise. You know at each of the stops they want to sell you over priced tours and bus rides and all the stuff that you do on their schedule and of course we fell for it at all except Ketchikan. At each port I would see minivan taxis that would seat six people and they were offering their services for $60 per hour flat rate. So if you can find two other couples, for $60 each plus a tip, you can get a custom tour for three hours and go where you want and stay or go at each spot on your time table versus the crowded tour bus schedule. You'll pay over $100 per couple for any of the tour bus trips. We traveled with a group so we did the minivan taxi at Ketchikan and it was so much nicer.

An alternative might be to check in to parking in one of the surveilled WSFerry parking lots on the other side of the sound and walking on for the cruise. (If you don't have a truckload of baggage, of course.)

Here's a link to the outfit that runs the Bainbridge lot, for example.

Several years ago I did just what you are looking at doing. Since I planned to see the Seattle area as well, I booked a site at an RV park for a couple of weeks and let the manager know I would be away for one of them. I stayed at Trailer Inn in Bellview. A plus was that there was good public transportation a block away and I was able to leave my TV at the site and avoid parking fees at the cruise terminal. Enjoy your trip.
