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.
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.
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!
Its impossible to descibe how unbelievable this sight is and to put the cherry on top we had the most beautiful day and Mother Nature was out in all her glory. Loved every minute!!!
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!
We got a balcony room so we could enjoy these majestic pieces of God's handiwork all day long in our own little space, all while still hearing the Park Ranger's commentary. Not enough words to describe the amazing beauty of these glaciers!
Had a great time in Glacier Bay! It is very beautiful there and majestic! You need to see all this for yourself, you won’t be disappointed. But don’t take my word. lol
MUST SEE! Only a few cruise lines will get you there but if you cruise to Alaska you need to see glacier bay. It was amazing and one of the best days.
Highlight of the cruise. Amazing views of many glaciers, and so quiet you can hear ice cracking and running streams on the hillsides. Spent the majority of the time on our veranda, with the door cracked so we could hear the Park Ranger narration broadcast on the room TV. So great!
