Access to the airport is not limited by your departure time, as I understand it is in India. You can arrive whenever you like. You can store your luggage at the cruise terminal until you're ready to head to the airport. portseattle.org/Cruise/…default.aspx

There are city tours that might interest you, in addition to the link provided by the other poster, try Gray Line or Viator, or you can just explore on your own. Read the "one day itinerary without a car" under Top Questions about Seattle to get some ideas.

is one of the larger pre and post cruise companies. They will pick you up at the cruise or hotel and then deliver you to the airport. You could check your luggage in and perhaps go to the mall that is close to the airport to kill some time.

Another idea that would be a lot of fun with kids is the Ducks tour: http://www.ridetheducksofseattle.com/

After storing your luggage, get a taxi to 5th & Broad for the tour. Afterwards, you can explore the Seattle Center (Space Needle, etc.) and take the monorail downtown, visit Pike Place Market, have lunch, etc. until it's time to go collect your luggage and head to the airport.
