I visited Tracy Arm some 20 years ago. We didn't have to travel as far to find the ice. Today, the ice has retreated significantly... but it's still impressive. Imagine a river like the Missouri... but made of ice. That's what you'll find at the...More

We're not that into nature, it was good to see one time. We saw it from a ship while enjoying our dinner.

Awesomely blue ice. Lots of ice in the water at multiple glaciers. Great waterfalls, mountain goats, and seals on the ice.

We visited on a cruise ship and spent about 2 hours watching the huge chunks of the glacier falling into the sea. Well worth the trip

What to do in Juneau? (9 Replies)
Hello, I will be cruising on Holland America on September 24, 2016. I've never been to Alaska. One of the stops is in Juneau. I was wondering should I choose an excursion to Tracy Arm Fjord or Mendenhall Glacier? The cruise will be going through glacier bay as well.

Welcome to the TA forums. As I think you will be on Nieuw Amsterdam from Vancouver it would have helped if you had mentioned that the Tracy Arm visit would be the excursion from the ship before she arrives at Juneau, and not other types of trips to Tracy Arm which are available from Juneau, or are you you on Westerdam ex Seattle and looking for a trip from there? Both sail on 24/09/16 and both are also scheduled to dock at Juneau on 26/09/16 between the hours of 1300 and 2200. If the...More

My 1st Alaskan Cruise (2 Replies)
I've been on many cruises but I'm going on my 1st Alaskan Cruise (Carnival) on May 15th. Can anyone recommend any cheap but good excursions? I've looked through the excursions that Carnival provides but alot of them are pretty pricey. We'll be going to: Tracy Arm Fjord, Skagway, Juneau, Ketchikan & Victoria. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanking you in advance - FlyingSolo916
