Went with the 26 Glacier tours. The guide driving us up there was excellent and telling us every thing you would want to know and stopping if animals were seen. The boat crew were very helpful and polite. The fish meal was excellent. We had a very good guide from the parks department. The captain gave us more than enough... More

First time in AK and our 5-hour 26 Glacier Tour on the Klondike Express, operated by Phillips, was nothing short of amazing. Our day was a little overcast, a little drizzly, a little chilly... but that didn't stop the seals, otters and porpoise from showing up. Our tour guide was well-informed and friendly, giving lots of interesting pointers along the... More

We walked along the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail and viewed it from there. Plus, we have a view of it from our hotel room at the Downtown Marriott.

We explored Prince William Sound via a Glacier Cruise. The sights were stunning and it was one of my favorite outings of our entire trip.

we went on a day cruise out of Valdez and it was really nice. The crew on the boat were wonderful. The lunch was a little lacking, you had a choice of clam chowder or vegetable soup and a bagel, with oreo's for dessert. Kind of a strange combination to me. I would do it again. Saw lots of eagles,... More

What a beautiful place to visit- for both wildlife and glaciers.. We took the 26 Glaciers cruise and it was worth it.. The surprise glacier was the best!! Apart from seals, sea lions and sea otters- we saw dolphins- that made our day. Thankfully, it was a bright and sunny day.

Took the 26 glacier cruise on the high speed catamaran. It was a beautiful sunny day so we were able to see all 26 glaciers. Great experience. Don't forget to take binoculars.

everything in alaska is soooo big. it's so beautiful and we had so much fun, we want to go back. everyone should go on a norwegian sun cruise to alaska, and soon the glaicers are melting.

Awakened to arriving in Sound. Was so peaceful and serene. Saw a grizzly on shoreline and then a glimpse of whale? rolling at surface. That will get you awake!
