Expansive Glacier - beautiful view from cruise ship on an awesome clear day. Saw many icebergs on the way to the Glacier but no wildlife other than birds.

We cruised on the Radiance of the Seas in July 2019 and the visit to the Hubbard Glacier was one of the highlights. The captain got us incredibly close and we were able to see ice calving off! The scale was just insane.

Went to the Park via tram. Visited the museum and nature center. Saw Nugget Falls and the Glacier. Absolutely magnificent and breath - taking. It took me 3 visits to make it here. Last time was via Cruise Ship, this was so much better.

It is a must see in Alaska. The enormity and color of it must be seen to truly appreciate. The majesty of it brought tears to my eyes.

We booked it and it was amazing. We were 1/4 of a mile from the Glacier (that is as close as you can get). I thought it was worth it.
