Our cruise ship made it all the way through the fjord right up to Sawyer Glacier and the views were amazing the whole way. Waterfalls all over, ice capped mountains, trees and wildlife, and lots of blue icebergs. Really a must see and must do.

It is difficult to find the words to describe this fantastic place! The mountains, views, waterfalls, blue glacier ice, and glacier itself is so dramatic..

it was the view of a life time to sail through the wonderful fjord... and at the end to view the Glacier while the ship was at the very end of the fjord... worth every moment of the trip..

The scenery is beautiful and if you're lucky you'll spot some wildlife and maybe even a glacier calving!

Breath taking! Took the Ruby Princess through the scenic granite walls of Tracy Arm Fjord. It doesn't take you as close to the glacier as I would have liked, but this whole scenic cruise morning was awesome!

We spent the day cruising the fjord and saw bears and an Eagle on an iceberg. our captain got up very close. Also, the icebergs were huge and beautiful, there also was the glacier that was calving frequently. The crew was fantastic and the food great.

We saw eagles, bears, and the most beautiful blue icebergs...the scenery was breathtaking and hard to truly describe. We got pretty close to the glacier before turning around (rather skillfully) to exit the fjord. We had a balcony on our cruise, which is great, but to really get the full scope of this magnificent experience, you really need to be... More

We were not able to see the glacier for safety reasons because of big chunks of floating ice. However, we sailed near to the shore and the scenery was beautiful and it was so quiet.

I thoroughly enjoyed visiting Tracy Arm, the landscapes seemed right out of a postcard I highly recommend it as a must to any Alaska trip.

Everyone should see this. It is beautiful beyond description, majestic and inspiring. We went there early in the morning on a calm, clear day so it was peaceful and felt almost sacred. There were whales, eagles and bears milling around. If you love the outdoors you need to see this place.
