The ship cruises Glacier Bay. You do not get off the ship. I mention this because some cruisers thought the ship docked somewhere along the way. Glacier Bay is beautiful and you see numerous glaciers and ice fields. You will want to be on an open deck so make sure you take a warm jacket, hat and lightweight gloves. At the bigger glaciers the ship will stay in place but turn so each side of the ship can see the glacier.

Absolutely the highlight of the trip. The view of the glacier is awesome. Starts with the view from the port side ( left side ) of the ship. If you're in a balcony room on the right side. Go to the front of the ship. when the boat turns 180° Go to your room, that way you get the whole 1 hour view. You definitely don't want to miss this.
This was an amazing spot. This area is incredibly peaceful. It dead ends with glaciers and wildlife on all sides. We came in and did a slow 180° so everyone could see the entire view. We'll be back!
Was too wonderful for words. Absolutely beautiful. The colors were beyond description. Loved the commentary by the naturalist onboard the ship. Very informative. The captain did a great job of getting everyone on the ship a great view of the glacier. We were able to see large portions of the glacier falling into the ocean.
Breathtaking scenery, abundant wildlife and the highlight of the cruise! We saw mountain goats, bears, seals, otters, and eagles. We were lucky enough to see and hear the white thunder of Margerie Glacier calving- something I will never forget!
