I have made this trip twice, several years apart, as it is my favorite tour from Juneau. It's a less expensive and arguably equally spectacular version of the pricey Glacier Bay trips further north. Both times I have witnessed plenty of bergs calving from the glacier into the water. You will sprain your finger taking video!

There were breath taking views of ice floats, icebergs and glaciers. Definetly worth getting a balcony cabin on any cruise liner!

South Sawyer Glacier is beautiful! Tracy Arm seemed to have more greenery and fewer glaciers than the Glacier Bay area I saw on another cruise. We did see the Hanging Glacier. We didn't get too close to it on our ship, but you can take some good pics of it.

We visited Tracy Arm Fjord on a cruise ship and although we heard it was "spectacular and unforgettable" - these words don't do this area justice. My advice, go, see the fjord and try to find some words to describe it.

Mountains surround you. There are not words to describe. Bring a coat, it tends to be windy, but oh so beautiful!

This was beautiful! Pictures do no do this justice. What an amazing place. Our cruise ship got very close to the glacier, the closes it has ever gotten. We went on Celebrity Solstice, great ship.

God's glory in nature. Bring binoculars. Lots of humpback whales to be seen when we were there. Glaciers and beautiful blue icebergs. Can't be explained, must be seen.

Gorgeous untainted nature. View after view after view... We had lovely weather and were able to get close to the glacier.

Went through as part of an Alaskan cruise. The views are amazing like nothing I've ever seen before. The color of the water, the size and the amount of the icebergs, the many birds propped on the icebergs. I felt like I was in a movie and everything around me was props.

We rode the ship up the fjord inside passage but could not go all the way into the fjord as our ship was a little too big. The scenery was beautiful and the wild life amazing. We were able to see several humpbacks, seals playing on the icebergs, and eagles. Our friends saw two bears playing from their cabin. I... More
