Beautiful Scenery

Sailing up the Tracy Arm was spectacular. The scenery of mountains, forests, glaciers, waterfalls and icebergs were awe inspiring.

Tracy Arm was beautiful. My eye opening moment was realizing that even looking through the binoculars the seals looked very small. As I thought about that, it dawned on me how huge that glacier was!

If you take one boat trip to see fjords, glaciers and wildlife, take this one. You get close up views to everything.

We cruised on a ship and visited many places but this was majestic. The glaciers crack like rifle fire and then drop into the sea. Purely spectacular to witness. Make this fjord top of your list when visiting Alaska.

I was just in general awed by Alaska, but this was the best. The waterfalls, seals and the icebergs all made up for a pretty amazing day! You could see the glacier far off and that was pretty mesmerizing.

We cruised on the Zuiderdam for 7 days. Due to it being a Fjord there is very little disturbance. Just cruises steadily on smoothly.

The boat trip to and through the fjord, taken in late September, was quite an experience. The scenery is exceptional and Sawyer Glacier is amazing. The Captain was extremely knowledgeable and made the trip quite educational. He stayed in the fjord until we were able to see the glacier calving. Getting up close and personal with an iceberg was another... More

The scenery is so stunningly beautiful that words and pictures cannot even describe. Be prepared to take a ton of pictures. There are waterfalls and Sawyer glacier and you can see smaller icebergs scattered throughout the cruise through fjords. And some areas there are clouds making a halo over the top of the mountains so you can just see the... More

I took a cruise on the Carnival Cruise ship. The first stop was an entire day slowly cruising through the most beautiful natural sights I had ever seen. I read about the Fjord before going but reading does not prepare you for the crisp, pure, clean air, the emerald green waters, the waterfalls, and the glaciers! I saw whales, seals,... More
