Check out the cool Space Needle ‘panocam’ at this link. If it is night time, one can always click on the ‘Best Views’ links on the panel on the right to see recorded views from previous days. This one below shows a cruise ship at one of the two terminals here. In 2015, Seattle will host 192 cruise ships and more than 895,000 passengers. (I still have to take my obligatory cruise up to Alaska! Yes!).
