Glaciers, glaciers, glaciers!

To see so many glaciers all in the same place is awesome! It is hard to get your mind around the age of these wonders. Beautiful, amazing, awe-inspiring, reflective!

While the day started a little rainy, it cleared enough for our trip through College Fjord. One glacier after another - it was amazing. The Star Princess captain "parked" us right in front of Harvard glacier and we enjoyed a 30-min spectacle of calving and its beauty. Definitely a must-see for anyone heading to AK.

My wife and I were here as the las leg of our Princess cruises Alaskan tour. We had visited the Glacier National Park the day before, which was amazing, and we thought we were in for more of the same. We were wrong. College Fjord has a different stage of plant and vegetation ecology than say the Margerie glacier. College... More

We visited College fjord on the last day of our cruise on the way to Whittier. Some cruises do not go that far and actually turn around after Skagway but this place is so worth a visit. The most beautiful glacier is at the end of the fjord and you do not really see it coming until you are close... More

Just a couple of hours today compared to Glacier Bay yesterday, but more stunning scenery. If you're cruising don't miss it.
