We visited the glacier during a recent cruise. The view was breath-taking, and the size of the glacier was amazing. The commentary by the on-board naturalist added considerably to the experience. Since we were there in early June, before the height of the seasonal melt,...More

The park rangers actually boarded our cruise ship and we had a half day tour of Glacier Bay National Park! I thought that was very awesome! Many tips, wildlife and landmarks were pointed out to us as we cruised through the park! Awesome day!

This stunning National Park can only be accessed by Boat. Although it was cloudy, the glacier was majestic and we had fabulous views from our cruise ship. We were able to see the ice cracking off several times much to our delight!

Hello! I will be on the NCL Pearl going through Glacier Bay and love photography. Is there a specific place on the boat to just park and get the best pictures? Port vs Starboard? Upper vs lower decks? Bow vs aft? Thank you!

I don't think you can really go wrong in Glacier Bay. I suppose bow heading in so you can see the glaciers as you head towards them. Port vs. starboard would depend the route your ship is taking. We loved taking wildlife... More
