“Beautiful scenery but a long day”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

On a previous trip, we had taken a similar boat tour of Kenai Fjords National Park. The Tracy Arm tour is a poor cousin by comparison.

You are on the water for 9 hours in a small, crowded boat - mostly motoring at full speed. It's 160 miles round trip to a tidewater glacier. The Fjord is beautiful. And they do spend about an hour or so at the glacier. The highlight of the trip is when the ice calves into the water. They stop briefly to dip the bow into a waterfall. But beyond that, there are few stops and little wildlife.

The crew was friendly and efficient. They serve sandwiches, cup-of-soup and hot drinks for lunch. The captain was knowledgeable and engaging. So if you don't mind a long day, go for it.

“Cruising to Alaska”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Cruising is not for everyone, times in port were not long enough. Arrive at 6:00 @ leave at 2:00 not good. I would much rather stay in a resort with a kitchen get up when I want, eat when I want. Everything was so fast, we were worn out. There are so many extra costs, tipping,better restaurants, drinks, even cokes were extra. Alaska was beautiful but a little disappointed. Maybe if we were not so hurried we would have enjoyed it more.

“My First Fjord”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

I got to see Tracy Arm from the deck of the Oosterdam, a cruise ship in the Hoilland America Line. The trip up was cloudy and overcast, with a lot of fog. The captain wasn't even sure if we'd be abl;e to ener the fjord because of the fog and mist. When we got there, the fog had lifted and we were able to make the entire trip in for an upclose look at the Sawyer Glacier, a truly beautiful sight. The ship went in through the narrow, high hill lined fjord at a slow speed, giving the passengers a great opportunity to see the Alaskan landscape up close. And wonderful it was. High green mountounous hills with large areas of colorful rocks, pristene skies and water and an almosy mystical aura. It was a fantastic bit of unspoiled terrain.

“Amazing trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

Best cruise ever ... Must do day tours at each port. We walked on the glacier in Juneau was breathtaking!! Saw a black bear catching salmon at another port stop. Did a city tour in Victoria BC and famous train ride in Skagway. Must do in a life time.
