We visited the glacier on a cruise to Alaska. It's amazing to see the beauty and serenity of nature. We were very lucky to have a sunny day, and no 2 minutes are the same, as the light and sun change the appearance and colors of the glacier, from white to blue to turquoise. As the glacier melts, you hear... More

If you take a cruise with the Hubbard Glacier on the itinerary you are in for a treat. This is one of the most spectacular glacial views that you can experience. This is the one of the few advancing glaciers and you will see and hear ice calving.

this glacier was awesome to behold and different than most glaciers (which are incredible in their own right!!). This massive glacier comes right down to the ocean and begins way back in the snow-covered mountain range you can see behind it. Our cruise ship was able to get close enough to it to see and hear it calve!! The sight... More

We had a fantastic experience approaching the massive glacier. The weather was calm and we gotto within a mile of the ice rim. We stayed for an hour and had lots af nice views. The sound of faraway ice breaking free was errie and reminiscent of volcanoes.

Had no idea I would be as breath taken by the beauty of the glacier as I was. But hearing it, making sounds of life, similar to thunder and cracking was amazing. Seeing it while calving, was a highlight of my trip.

As your cruise ship approaches, you will begin to see icebergs and you realize that you are finally in Alaska!! When the ship gets close, you feel like you can almost touch the glacier and it is surreal. It is so beautiful. It is a wonder of nature that must be seen. We were stunned!!

To see this amazing glacier was breathtakingly beautiful. The waterfalls coming down from the mountains were beautiful, seeing eagles flying high and icebergs in the water just flowing past us.

We were aboard the Grand Princess on day four of our land/sea tour when we entered Yakutat Bay and Hubbard Glacier Park. This fantastic place has to be seen to fully appreciate the feel, sound and color of the scenery and the glacier. I can't adequately describe the experience, it is a wonder. Seeing a glacier calve and hearing the... More

After 4 Alaskan cruises, I will NEVER get sick of sailing into the Hubbard Glacier Park, and seeing the HUGE wall of glaciers, and watching them break off and crashing into the water is just awesome! Sounds like thunder when this massive wall of glacier is cracking. Could not appreciate Alaska until I got a little older, but so happy... More
