We had a gorgeous sunny day to view Glacier Bay from the decks and our private balcony of the Golden Princess. What made it very special were the Park Rangers that came aboard ship and provided so many interesting facts about the Park and the area in Alaska in general. Pictures are unbelievable, but don't do the actual visit justice. Every American should visit Alaska and should certainly include Glacier Bay in their itinerary!

Amazing and breathtaking!
Felt very guilty exploring this pristine area via large cruise ship.
Perhaps it would be best if cruise ships weren't allowed into the area?
But there is no other way most of us would get to experience the magic...

I spent the last week of June 2014 in Alaska visiting Glacier Bay, Prince William Sound, Juneau, Admiralty Island and Anchorage. I took the Glacier Bay Boat Tour from the dock at Glacier Bay Lodge and enjoyed every minute of this lovely tour. Margerie Glacier at the end of the bay is one of Alaska's few stable glaciers (that is not currently receding) and we got much closer to the glacier than is possible in a cruise liner. I loved seeing the blue ice! The weather alternated between sunny and overcast, and was of course a bit chilly up close to the glaciers. In addition to seeing otters, seals and bald eagles, we were lucky to see a couple of brown bears along the shore. The boat itself was clean and there is plenty of viewing area. I plan to do this tour again someday when my grandchildren can travel. Glacier Bay is a must see!

On a Holland America cruise we spent 8 hours in the park-unbelievable natural beauty-nothing can compare to the sight of the beautuful glaciers.
