“Stunning”

Glacier Bay National Park & Preserve
Reviewed 6 April 2018

We didn't know what to expect from Glacier Bay National Park on our HAL cruise. Park rangers came aboard for show & tell and to stamp our NP passports. Watching the ice cave off was thrilling.

This was our third cruise in Glacier Bay (2003, 2012 , 2017) and we found this sight as amazing as we did the first time ! We were lucky because the rangers told us that we had the best sighting conditions for years and the temperature was still warm enough to spend the whole day on the bridge ! We are looking forward a fourth visit !

We cruised with Norwegian and went through Glacier bay. It was so gorgeous and we saw parts of the glacier fall off. The park rangers were so knowledgeable and answered our questions. It was in the 40s so a jacket with some layers was helpful while sitting on the balcony of our suite. I'd highly suggest going on this cruise going through Glacier Bay.

Glacier Bay is beautiful place to visit. The ice is stunning. Small pieces were floating in the bay. It is worth the visit. Take WARM clothing, even in July!!

We were there 20 years ago on our honey moon and the Glacier were large and deep. the cruise ship can park about 500 to 1 km from the glacier edge and we can see the calving with big chunks of ice falling into the water making big waves. The estimate depth of the ice below water was around 600ft.This time around the glacier has receded to 3 miles from us near the shore. The total height of the glacier is only about 300 ft. That is the result of one glacier. There are thousands of glacier around Glacier bay and other fjords around the area. Go see it while you can still see them.
