Q: We are going on a cruise leaving May 16th out of Seward. We fly into Anchorage at 12:30pm and need to be in Seward before 8:00pm. How often do the motorcoaches leave the airport in Anchorage?
A: Holland America has motorcoach departures from the airport direct to Seward starting at about noon and ending by 3:30pm or 4:00pm, depending on if flights are arriving on schedule. However, the coaches depart as they fill up, so depending on how many other passengers are arriving at the same time as your flight, you may have to wait a while. You’ll want to check in with a Holland America representative in the baggage claim and they’ll direct you to where the coaches depart from. The motorcoach transfer to Seward is 127 miles and takes about 3 hours, sometimes less depending on traffic.
